For this artist’s book, Wade Guyton decided to print a
large-format painting on a 1:1 scale.
Flipping through the 360 pages,
one looks at the fragments of a unique work, which could
potentially be reconstructed by joining the pages together.
In a sense, this book is a reflection on the questions of reproduction,
the original, the source, and re-formation at the heart of Guyton’s practice.
If it could be said that Guyton’s minimalistic “paintings,”
which connect directly to abstraction’s history,
conjure a restructuring of Modernist art and decor,
this book offers a mise en abyme of these procedures.
