Along with artists like Kelley Walker (a friend with whom he often collaborates), Seth Price and Tauba Auerbach, Mr. Guyton is at the forefront of a generation that has been reconsidering both appropriation and abstract art through the 21st-century lens of technology.

“Wade speaks to the way images travel across our visual culture — on our computers and iPhones, televisions and books,” said Scott Rothkopf, the Whitney curator who organized the show. “He has figured out a way to make work that deals with technology but doesn’t feel tricky or techie, rather it’s intuitive. It’s abstract on one hand and Pop on the other.”

It was Warhol, after all, who said: “Paintings are too hard. The things I want to show are mechanical. Machines have less problems.” And today artists as varied as Cindy Sherman, Jeff Koons and even the 80-year-old German painter Gerhard Richter are producing paintings with computers.
