James Welling Photographs
Contributions by Michael Fried, Sherri Geldin, Sarah J. Rogers.
PRAISE AND REVIEWS
While Welling's work seems to support the modernist belief that photography can help us understand and refine perception, the artist continually introduces a (postmodern) gap between the image and what is depicted, severing the signifier from its referent, so as to suggest the weakening purchase of the real and concomitant triumph of the simulacrum.
