James Welling, FDB9, 2009-2012.   SOLD OUT

James Welling, FDB9, 2009-2012.As a student Welling was introduced to American Color-Field painting, which became a source of inspiration for his abstract work. Between 1986 and 2006, Welling worked on a series titled Degradés, in which he exposed different parts of photographic paper to different color filtrations using a color enlarger. This series was a precursor to Fluid Dynamics, for which Welling made photograms of water on chromogenic paper, scanned the images, and altered the colors with Adobe Photoshop. Both bodies of work are evidence of his concern with photography’s materiality—especially in the face of technological change—and with the medium’s relationship to painting and sculpture.This James Welling limited-edition photograph, FDB9, 2009–12, is from his series Fluid Dynamics. The image will be featured in James Welling: Monograph (Aperture, Spring 2013).
