In a new series of painted and collaged works Ollie Wagner reexamines the American landscape through the lens of media, piecing together video stills, photographs, and found footage to create a highly filtered reproduction of reality.

Ollie’s process involves recording iPhone video from moving cars, photographing this video as it plays on a television set, altering these photos digitally, printing and collaging them onto wood panels, then painting and shellacking the final images. This labor intensive method of image production results in landscape portraits that are simultaneously unnerving and familiar.

About The Pink Building:

What happens when a property owner decides to let a group of artists take over a space while it is waiting to be developed? The Pink Building Project seeks to invest in the process of making art. Located on a south east corner of downtown Raleigh The Pink Building has become home to four Resident Artists, Shelley Smith, Scott Donley, Kelly Kye, and Mackenzie Bullard. The group has been given one year to transform the space into whatever they believe will fill the most pressing needs of their work, and in turn the community has the opportunity to participate in their process of creating.
