Wyatt Kahn


Wyatt Kahn is primarily known for his investigations into the visual and spatial relationship between painting and sculpture. Using unprimed canvases stretched over wooden frames, Kahn assembles complex wall-mounted works in which the gaps between the individual canvases give rise to abstract or pictorial compositions. Rather than tracing the lines and shapes directly onto the canvas itself, he turns them into physical components of the artwork. Referencing the tradition of minimalist abstraction, Wyatt Kahn’s monochrome multi-panel ‘paintings’ are informed by a desire to explore non-illusory forms of representation.
