  • James Welling’s work centers on an exploration of photography, shuffling the elemental components of the medium to produce distinctly uncompromising results. During his career, Welling has experimented with different photographic mediums, including Polaroids, silver gelatin prints, photograms, and digital prints, exploring the tensions of and between representation and abstraction. This dramatic print comes from Welling’s abstract explorations from the 1980s, reproduced by the artist himself as a one-of-a-kind silver gelatin print exclusively for Light Work.

    Welling has had solo exhibitions at Künstnernes Hus, Oslo, Norway; Musée départemental d’art contemporain de Rochechouart, France; Regen Projects, Los Angeles, CA; and David Zwirner Gallery, New York, NY, as well as a touring retrospective with the Wexner Center for the Arts, Columbus, OH. His work was included in the Metro Pictures inaugural exhibition and featured in the 2008 Whitney Biennial in New York. He has also exhibited in group exhibitions at the Whitney Museum of American Art, Museum of Modern Art, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Welling participated in Light Work’s Artist-In-Residence Program in 1986.

  • Light Work was founded as an artist-run, non-profit organization in 1973. Its mission is to provide direct support to artists working in photography and related media through residencies, publications, exhibitions, and a community-access lab facility. Light Work's Fine Print Program, featuring exclusive signed prints by acclaimed photographers, represents an excellent way to further your personal art collection while supporting Light Work’s mission of offering opportunities to emerging and under-recognized artists.
