This new work represents a dissolution of boundaries for Biagi, who employs media as diverse as wood, paper, metal, acrylic, silk, and spray paint to blur the borders between life and death, nature and civilization, and preservation and transformation.

Biagi has spent the last ten years accumulating an archive of found images pulled from media, pornography, art history, and his own snapshots. This body of source material allows the artist to construct works of collage quickly and intuitively, approximating the library of Biagi’s unconscious mind.

Biagi’s signature medium of tar grounds the work—literally acting as a backdrop for the colorful found imagery, and conceptually referring back to his investment in the transformative qualities of collage
