I recently asked Anthony White some questions about his money paintings, and have come across an artist in Zürich, Switzerland doing something similar. Maria pointed out the one thousand paintings site, where Sala is creating 1000 numbered works for sale online.
It’s an idea that is getting a lot of attention online.
Here’s his rules for the works..
What’s special about these paintings? One number, one painting – the number is the art is the limit is the price. Each of the one thousand paintings is unique, showing a number between 1 and 1000. This is an experiment of art and mathematics, on the web, the first of its kind. The value of each painting is defined by its number (value = 1000 – number). The earlier you buy, the more you save.
There’s more info on the 1000 paintings website.
