Daniel Blagg was featured by author Steve Carter in Dallas Modern Luxury Magazine for his solo exhibition Thrashing About. The author writes, "One highlight of the show is Irrational Exhuberance, a large canvas whose title is borrowed from a now-quaint Alan Greenspan coinage. In it, Blagg turns his rueful gaze on the country's ongoing economic crisis in a subtle commentary of razorblade conscision. The painting's ironic focal image is a a castoff "Golden Nugget" sign from Las Vegas, its twinkling lights long since burned out. A deadly coral snake slitherstowards its promise of big payoffs, while a nearby sign reading "0" and "9" marks the year.
