Lot Essay:
Wade Guyton, along with Kelley Walker, Seth Price, and Tauba Auerbach, is among some of the artists at the forefront of new ideas on appropriation and abstract art utilizing 21st-century digital technology. Indeed, many of Guyton's earlier works harnessed the power of simple inkjet printers. He would feed materials such as book pages, magazines, and blank canvas through the printer, embracing the imperfections that would result from using unconventional materials.

Many of his recent works have used headlines from the New York Times, commenting on times of unrest and unease politically and socially. Some of the front pages have been halved or split down the center, signally a rift within the country when juxtaposed with pictures of violence and headlines of recent events.

Guyton has exhibited at the Whitney Museum of Art, Kunsthaus Bregenz, Kunsthalle Zurich, as well as the Venice Biennale.

Sight; height: 16 1/4 in x width: 11 3/4 in. Framed; height: 25 1/4 in x width: 20 3/4 in.
