New York-based artist Charles Mayton is a conceptual painter whose practice is at once object-oriented and theoretical. His paintings are witty and physically sumptuous “allegories of painting” (cf. Jeffery Weiss on Jasper Johns). They take as their subject the history, procedures, emblems, potential, and limitation of painting, using all this as the basis for an extended painterly and linguistic performance.
