This work contains an essay by Richard Dyer and an interview with the artist by Ben Tufnell. The trigger for Dan Hays' ongoing series of paintings "Impressions of Colorado", was the discovery of his namesake on the internet. The other Dan Hays lives in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado and runs a website dedicated to the photographic and video documentation of the local landscape. This Dan Hays carefully re-renders the low resolution images of his website in paint, replicating the pixellated grid as hard-edge abstraction. This work is published to accompany his exhibitions at Manchester Art Gallery, Southampton City Art Gallery and Djanogly Art Gallery, Nottingham (2006).
