C.K. Wilde: TenderPavel Zoubok Gallery, New York

C.K. Wilde makes art out of money—more precisely, his complex mosaics are crafted with cut-up paper currency from countries around the world. It’s possible this technique began as just a joke: Various works here have tongue-in-cheek money-related titles: Cash Cow (2009) and Pork (2009) portray a cow and a pig, respectively. Yet at some point Wilde got serious about his unique medium, and he has since used it to re-create Hindu iconography, medieval tapestries, and famous works by Goya and Picasso. One of his most recent works is among his best: Paper Tiger (2010), despite its punny title, is a clever homage to Asian art and themes. 533 W. 23rd St., (212) 675-7490. Through Nov. 30. Prices range from $3,500 to $20,000.
