  • Catalogue Essay

    Because Guyton\Walker’s work is partly founded on the reuse of images from the world of advertisement, their collaboration is a form of symbolic appropriation in itself—that of the phenomenon of joint labor under a single trademark. At one end of the production line, new jars of paint foreshadow a work to come; at the other, pieces of fabric—actually tattered silkscreens, used in the making of the exhibited paintings—hang like standards from atop poles. These banners are not only reminders of the modes of production in use, but also brand insignia—here of a personal “style”. They are rallying signs that function by drawing an ensemble of borrowed objects and images around themselves, then affirming a stamp of ownership on the accumulated material.
