More about the artwork

Even in his early works, Wade Guyton was dealing with the effects of digital technologies on art and the creative process. This textile piece is the result of the interplay between artist and technology. Guyton designs his motifs on the computer; he then uses an ink-jet printer to transfer them onto canvas. The mechanical “mistakes”—irregularities, stripes, stains—are what define his works, no longer the brushstrokes of the painter. He thus places himself in the tradition of Andy Warhol and his silkscreened paintings. As Warhol said: “The reason I'm painting this way is that I want to be a machine.” Guyton consistently extends this approach by confronting the canvas as a traditional medium for painting with the methods of digital image production.
