Wall cuts are panels in New York City subway stations where print advertising is displayed. Transit workers remove or paper over posters; "subway artists" tear layers to create collage-like effects and add graffiti; time passes and paper deteriorates.

The results are a revolving display of found or accidental art, calling to mind Abstract Expressionist, Color Field and Pop Art paintings, collage, mixed media and more recent artistic trends incorporating graffiti, text and abstract and figurative forms.

The panels are remarkable for their intrinsic beauty, variety and range of effect, and for being the product of random forces and human design.

Barton captures these creations using the VAST technique for producing exceptionally high resolution photographs. The photographs are then printed in large formats, resulting in impeccably precise physical replicas of the wall cuts.

Print only

Our photographic prints are created using a specialty, large-format fine art printer designed to produce archival, museum-grade prints. They are true "chromogenic" prints: light-sensitive paper exposed in a darkroom using state-of-the-art lasers to produce the sharpest possible image. Click on the icons below to learn more or click here to explore further.

Our photographic prints are available in one of two finishes: glossy and lustre. Glossy prints have a rich, silky saturation and are great for environments where the lighting and reflections have been carefully thought through. Lustre prints have a bright, sparkle-like finish that diffuses reflections and are therefore more versatile for environments where the lighting and reflections are less under your control.

Your print comes with two certificates of authenticity hand-signed by the artist and the printmaker: one that you will affix to the finished piece and one that remains standalone. Additionally, your print's provenance is tracked and verified using state-of-the-art digital technology. Learn more.
