Wade Guyton

Wade Guyton rose to prominence in the mid-2000s with a landmark series of abstract paintings composed of simple forms and letters printed on canvas. Running the canvas through a commercial inkjet printer, Guyton stretched the device beyond its capacity to the point of failure, embedding the limits of a digital future onto the surfaces of his paintings. In his drawings, sculptures, and installations Guyton further explores the intersection of art, design, technology, and daily life. In recent years, his practice and imagery have expanded to address the ever-increasing presence of technology and its effects.

Wade Guyton (b. 1972) was born in Hammond, Indiana, and lives and works in New York. His work has been the subject of numerous one-person museum exhibitions including the Museum Ludwig in Cologne (2019), the Serpentine Gallery in London (2017), Le Consortium in Dijon (2016), Kunsthalle Zürich (2013), and the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York (2012).
