Herzliche Einladung zu den Veranstaltungen der Städelschule!

Wade Guyton
Wednesday, 24th September, 19 h, Aula

Der Vortrag findet in englischer Sprache statt.

The works of New York-based artist Wade Guyton engage the formal repertory of modernism, from Bauhaus and constructivism to Minimal, Conceptual, and Appropriation art. Since 2005, Guyton has worked primarily on canvas; his tool, however, is not the brush but an Epson Stylus inkjet printer, a machine used for large-format prints. Using a computer, Guyton produces abstract paintings: he designs the motifs on the computer and then puts them on canvas using the printer; sources of error such as using a carrier material other than the one for which the machine is conceived, manipulating the color supplies, and deliberately jolting and pulling the material while the printer is working are an intentional part of this process, creating smudges, drippings, or distortions and displacements that turn a model designed for serial reproduction into a series of original objects.
