Wade Guyton

Post-conceptual American artist Wade Guyton makes works (often on a large scale) that “act like” paintings and drawings, but which are created using flatbed scanners, desktop computers, and Epson inkjet printers. The artist rejects painterly gesture yet the end result of each print cannot be predetermined; a degree of chance is involved. The viewer is asked to reconsider the act of gesture and the extent of appropriation in contemporary art.
