Wyatt Kahn is a sculptor by training, but creates works that he considers to be paintings. An older series of large canvas-based work were made through a complex process using black rubber, charcoal powder, and stencils, resulting in 2-D works with fragile, understated surfaces. A more recent series consisted of abstract compositions made of many unpainted canvases, stretched over irregularly shaped frames; these monochromatic works employ negative space and geometry to create abstract compositions. Kahn cites as his influences Hiroshi Sugimoto and Jay Defeo, the latter of whom Kahn admires for “[pushing] painting to the limits of sculpture.” To this he adds, “I am trying to push sculpture to the limits of painting.”
