Wade Guyton X Poster (Untitled, 2007, Epson UltraChrome inkjet on linen, 84 x 69 inches, WG1208) 2017

  • Not on view

In this monumental digital print, Guyton depicts the work referred to in the title. His “printed paintings” of the 2000s consisted of sheets of linen folded in half and fed through a large inkjet printer, where they were printed with the letter x as typed in Microsoft Word. The streaks, blurs, and smudges generated by the printer attest to Guyton’s imperfect control over the procedure; the artist embraced these accidents and irregularities as effects of chance. X Poster was produced by digitally stitching together photographs of the original and then printing the result at a matching scale.
