Wyatt Kahn

Wyatt Kahn has an active printing practice but is most well-known for his monochromatic, organic gatherings of canvas. Inspired by Minimalist Ellsworth Kelly and reminiscent of Joe Fyfe’s work with textiles, Kahn creates small stretched canvases that are rearranged into larger rectangular or amoebic compositions. His most recent works start by wrapping these canvases in colored fabric, then covering them with thin white linen to mock the washes of traditional paint or varnish upon sculpture. These multi-panel works reflect upon construction and architecture in the two-dimensional space, as well as the ways in which formal characteristics of painting and sculpture might contrast or relate to one another. Kahn considers the limitations of vision and the ways in which depth, flatness, and focus transform in the process of viewing the work.


Kahn has been featured in exhibitions at Contemporary Art Museum, St. Louis, LA><ART, Los Angeles, FLAG Art Foundation, New York, Dallas Museum of Art, Texas, and Hunter College, New York, among other international galleries. He participated in the Performa Biennial in 2015.
