James Welling has consistently pushed the limits of documentary and abstract photography, reinventing the medium in the process. Experimenting with materials such as draperies, pastry dough, and window screens, Welling’s abstract works play with dimension and color to engage the physiological capabilities of the human eye. To create his photograms, Welling dispenses with the camera altogether, using light and color filters to imprint images directly on to the film, as he did for the chromatically brilliant series Flowers (2004-2011).
