This first monograph on the prominent New York City artist, Wade Guyton, whose name has lately been appearing on the international art circuit with increasing regularity (often together with his sometimes-collaborator, Kelley Walker), features a selection of Guyton's chromatically cool, large-format serial prints on canvas. These object-like, Minimalistic "paintings," which sometimes connect directly to Bauhaus aesthetics, sometimes to Constructivism, Concrete, Appropriation or Conceptual art, convey a particular kind of humor and beauty, conjuring a re-formation and re-structuring of Modernist art and decor. Incorporating scanned pictures of flames, stripes, squares, points and holes drawn in the computer, as well as typed U's and X's, the works feel resolutely undefined and open to interpretation, even as the book's title refers directly to the advertising slogan for Olympus digital cameras: "Color. Power. Style. Find your Verve." Amen.
