Wyatt Kahn makes drawings, paintings and prints, but never in a traditional way. All of his works begin as a drawing of something in daily life - a person or an object in space. His "paintings" are made from dozens of irregularly-shaped wooden blocks cut by hand, wrapped with canvas, and fastened together, creating a finished composition that is much more than the sum of its parts. Like a handful of great artists before him, Wyatt’s work is neither painting nor sculpture, but a matrix for both.
Wyatt Kahn (b.1983) is in the collections of the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Centre Pompidou, Paris, the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, the Dallas Museum of Art, the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, the CCS Bard Hessel Museum, and the Albright-Knox Art Gallery.
He is represented by Galerie Eva Presenhuber, Zurich and T293, Rome
