Glass House: James Welling Signing at David Zwirner Gallery, February 26, 2011

On Sunday, February 26, David Zwirner Gallery hosted photographer James Welling signing copies of his new book, Glass House, which collects 45 photographs made over the course of three years—from 2006 to 2009—of architect Philip Johnson's 1949 New Canaan, Connecticut, masterwork, the Glass House. Working with a digital camera, tripod and numerous colored lens filters, Welling created tinted veils and distortions that transformed his images at the moment of exposure; the resulting photographs seem to oscillate between crisp architectural detail and the abstracting effects of filtered color. According to a recent piece by Welling in Artforum, the Glass House project was "a laboratory for ideas about transparency, reflectivity and color."
