Walead Beshty creates seductive works that are seemingly abstract, though their surfaces show details that suggest the artist’s unique photogram process. Beshty’s images are rigorously produced in a darkroom by exposing multicolored paper to light according to a predetermined and self-imposed set of rules. In the title, Beshty purposefully makes his practice transparent by informing us of his process, location, date, and materials, ultimately and cleverly communicating the material concerns of his photographic practice. Beshty’s work has been collected by The Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; The Guggenheim Museum, New York; The Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; The University of Michigan Museum of Art, Ann Arbor; The Victoria and Albert Museum, London; and The Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, to name a few. Walead Beshty currently has a solo exhibition at The Power Station in Dallas.

estimated retail value: $42,000
