About Wade Guyton

Wade Guyton is best known for works on paper and canvas that exploit the painterly but erratic qualities of Inkjet printers. Employing large-format printers on pre-primed linen intended for oil painting, Guyton generates marks—typically Xs, stripes, and flames—that are irregularly absorbed to create random variations and patterns; seams and divisions in the composition result from folding and repeatedly feeding linen into the machine. In a recent series of black monochromes, paintings were overprinted with a Photoshop-drawn black rectangle.

American, b. 1972, Hammond, Indiana, based in New York, New York
