To create the images Webber stretches and layers thread on a pre-cut frame. The resulting images are made by laying this “plate” onto black and white photographic paper in the darkroom. The photograms are printed in editions of five, with variations.
The imagery is built up using layers of thread, to create rhythmic, intuitive compositions, which offer tension between the organic and rectilinear. They suggest macro and micro views of nature, or of the man made.
This photogram is a continuation of Webber's work with the grid formation.
Working intuitively, she knotted and looped the thread, and then stretched the thread onto the support.
This is edition 1/5
