The colour of Wade Guyton’s kitchen floor determines the titles of the volumes of his artist book series Drawings.
After Blue (Museum Ludwig, Cologne, 2010) and Red (Wiener Secession, 2011), Yellow (Kunsthalle Zurich) comes now Red Vol. II (Punta della Dogana, Venice).
Each volume contains a collection of pages taken from catalogues or magazines and overprinted with simple geometric shapes. Guyton photographs these pages as a pile on his kitchen floor, which is now yellow.
Every time the reader turns the page, she sees that Guyton has removed one drawing from the stack, thereby connecting the reader directly with the artist’s production phase.
Published on the occasion of the exhibition at Punta della Dogana, Venice, 13 April – 31 December 2014.
