In this monumental digital print, Guyton depicts the work referred to in the title. His “printed paintings” of the 2000s consisted of sheets of linen folded in half and fed through a large inkjet printer, where they were printed with the letter x as typed in Microsoft Word. The streaks, blurs, and smudges generated by the printer attest to Guyton’s imperfect control over the procedure; the artist embraced these accidents and irregularities as effects of chance. X Poster was produced by digitally stitching together photographs of the original and then printing the result at a matching scale.
