wade guyton

Wade Guyton uses an Epson large format printer to create black monochrome paintings. This inkjet work "transcribes a visual record of the printer's actions: the trace of movement of the print heads, the varying states of their clogged-ness, the track marks of the wheels on wet ink all mixed with the scratches and smears on the paintings from being dragged across the floor to be fed back again into the printer." The results are grotesquely stunning with their raw and primitive delicacies. It's the coolest show I've seen in Chelsea this season.
