Guyton's "printer drawings" consist of illustrated pages torn out of exhibition catalogues, monographs and architecture books. With the help of a standard ink printer, Guyton then adds geometric shapes to the original plates which do not relate to the illustration in any ostensible way. One shows a Suprematist composition superimposed over an abstract biomorphic sculpture, another a perforated rectangle over a Dada poster, and in another, flames crawl over reproductions of paintings. This monograph / artist's book designed by Joseph Logan and published in conjunction with an exhibition in Lyon, present three series of works.
Published after the exhibition Wade Guyton at La Salle de bains art center, Lyon (April 1st – May 28 2006).
Born 1972 in Hammond, Indiana, Wade Guyton lives and works in New York City.
