Guyton, Guyton/Walker, Walker...a painting becoming a can..

Wade Guyton, Guyton/Walker and Kelley Walker's exhibition at Kunsthaus Bregenz in Austria, its a little confusing to know what's what in the exhibition. Art News reviews the exhibition and works to parse out their individual vs. collaborative work

Both Wade Guyton and Kelley Walker make use of found signs and images, which they transfer to canvas or wood panels as ink-jet or screen prints or transform into sculptures and installations. Here too, in GuytonWalker, we find motifs from high and low culture. Like Wade Guyton and Kelley Walker, Guyton/Walker work with different spatial levels and divergent references. But from this the duo often develops paintings, objects, and installations that play with an impression of provisionality, chaos, the unfinished. Images and forms migrate and mutate. A painting may become a can, a sheet of printed drywall or a table. And the table may become a mattress or even a painting again. more
