– 

The Museum of Contemporary Art in Geneva is currently showing a new body of work by American artist WADE GUYTON.

GUYTON is best known for his paintings and their mode of production as well as for his iconic graphic motifs such as the ‘X’ that he repeated in different scales and colors. He started in fact to digitally print on canvas in the end of the nineties. This printing process, just as your domestic printer, knows misprints or other ink errors, generating imperfections that render GUYTON‘s objects more painterly and unique. In an interview for the NYTimes in 2012 he explained that he is not seeking for those accidents. But rather that he sees them like records of their own making.

The exhibition at Mamco is a concentration of large-scale works that have been almost entirely produced this year using this same mode of production. Thanks to an apparent simplicity, and a recurrent motif (ndlr: a detail of a chair he took in picture in his atelier), WADE GUYTON once again is stressing the limits of the medium and in this case the still life genre. Additionally the rigorous curatorial display in which the works are presented, supports the precise and uncompromising position of this new body of work.

WADE GUYTON is on view at Mamco, Geneva until January 27, 2016.
