DESCRIPTION

The images in this book are selected from a larger series called "Revisions and Queries," derived entirely from contemporary artist monographs, exhibition catalogues, interview collections. For many years, Charles Gute has worked with text as a primary material both as a conceptual artist and as a freelance editor. These separate activities overlapped when—in the process of recovering proofreading data from a crashed hard drive—Gute began taking corrected publisher's proofs and stripping out all content except for his own revisions, queries and proofreader's notations. Reframed as line drawings, these abstract constellations of marks resonate with their original subject matter in unpredictable ways. But as they consist solely of his own coded, precise markings, the pieces can also be read as a kind of 'self-portraiture,' a personal record of hundreds of hours of Gute's work as an artist engaged with the written word on a daily basis.
