Dirty Squares

Dirty Squares. David Hayes, 2015.

It was one of those nights...nothing I was editing was thrilling me. Perfect time for a little "faffing". For the hell of it I thought I'd create a white square and post it on IG just to see what sort of response it would get. I created the square, labeled "Square" (real original!) and started to post...

Then a spark of orneriness came across me...let's make it "dirty" and stick in into a Polaroid frame.  Added the word "Dirty". Perfect. 

Dirty Square - White. David Hayes, 2015.

What amazed me is how many people "liked" it on IG. Even left nice comments! I was on to something!!

Dirty Square - Red. David Hayes, 2015.

Dirty Square - Red was posted the next day...

Dirty Square - Blue. David Hayes, 2015.

Dirty Square - Blue followed to finish up the series. By then, my public had gotten bored with the whole concept and had moved on. IG can be such a fickle bitch sometimes...

I created each of these images using PS Touch and Polamatic. Should you be interested in owning a print of all or any of these, just let me know. They're only $90,000 each. (Might as well pay me that amount versus some dude in NYC that steals images...)

ok...I was the white square...I didn't get it...but I liked it to be nice...there, I said it...I don't want to hurt your feelings but...if you get $90,000 for it more power to you!

I was one of those who loved the first one. And the other two. If I had an extra $90,000 it would be hard for me to pick just one!

Its almost a political statement now Dave - !!!

Hey the insight into the artist's mind is amazing - and yes the general public can be fickle and like to be entertained!!!!

90,000 hmmmmm and I thought I was the crazy pricer!! Cheers - still intrigued though!
