html painting

I’m not sure where I’ve been hiding – because apparently Chris Ashley has been making paintings in html for a while now – but I only came across them recently. I think they’re an eloquent expression of visual art in a new-media public forum (the interweb). Sure, it’s part that I’m a sucker for certain kinds of formal work. But, I like them for the that and also as a nod to the post- minimal, color field, etc. inheritance. And, then, it’s nice that within a whole discourse on what makes art “art”, and so on, that this:

and this:

are the exact same thing.
