A new monograph on Wade Guyton, considered one of the most influential representatives of the recent generation of artists who produce images in the digital era. Although some of his works question the structure and language of painting in the traditional sense, they still radically modify codes and modes of production. Guyton’s paintings are realised by putting canvases through huge inkjet printers, sometimes several times, to print the motifs and colours that appear. Errors, drips, and misprints are part of the composition process, and ensure unique results. Featuring over 30 new works produced specifically for a large-scale curatorial project, as well as a critical essay by Tristan Garcia.
