    Information

    For some 35 years, American artist James Welling (1951) has created photographic works that are both beautiful and challenging. He works in the complex, ambivalent ground between painting, sculpture, and traditional photography. Since the mid-1970s he has addressed an array of issues and ideas, playing with the tension between realism and transparency, abstraction and representation, optics and description, personal and cultural history, and, of course, the physical and chemical nature of photography. His questioning of what is given, his doubt, and his desire to challenge the past and the existing with new artistic and photographic positions have a direct and exciting impact on his work. In collaboration with the Cincinnati Art Museum, James Welling – Monograph is the artist’s first major retrospective. Main sponsor: George Foundation
