Webber’s photographic work explores the intersection of photography and sculpture.
In her studio practice, she begins with a sculptural object; the object is made of hand-cut shapes or manipulated found objects.
The photographs are made by shooting the objects with a large format view camera, and printing the negatives in various sizes, on a mat surface paper, that has the look of charcoal on watercolor paper.
Webber’s aim is to create an abstract image, which explores perceptions of negative and positive space, movement or stasis in an image, and light as a trace of movement and space.
