When I saw John Hagerty's 'Flirt with Time' photo set, I immediately thought of 'Charlotte's Web.' This innovative series arranges phrases in gold letters in a spiderweb.

With phrases like 'Happy Mess,' 'Easy on the Eyes,' 'Use Rest,' and 'If You Picnic She Will Come,' John Hagerty's modern-day mantras are definitely ones to follow.

Implications - Modern art is often influenced by social and environmental factors; to respond to concerns about the recession, artist John Hagerty created a set of insightful, motivational mantras with a presentation that channels a classic children's book. The finished product inspires nostalgia and an uplifting sense of positivity -- two factors that today's art consumer can thoroughly appreciate.
