Lot Essay

"There is evidence of this struggle in the work, in its surface. I've been putting different kinds of material through my inkjet printer and there are lots of fuck ups in the printing, the inkjet heads get snagged, ink drips, the registration slides. I'm also just making dumb marks--lines, Xs, Us, squares, monochromatic shapes that don't require the complexity of the photo printer technology - and it's interesting how the printer can't handle such simple gestures" (W. Guyton, quoted in Guyton/Walker: The Failever of Judgement, exh. cat., 2004, p. 49).
