Things beyond resemblance

by Philipp Kaiser | 01 August 2015
Synopsis
As a conceptual artist who is deeply interested in the genesis of representation, Welling began this series of photographs as an examination of Andrew Wyeth's influence on his own work, from Welling's earliest watercolours in the 1960s through his recent photographs. Shot on location in Pennsylvania and Maine-in the same areas where Wyeth painted throughout his life-this major series includes photographs from 2010 through 2014. In addition to including never-before-seen works from the completed Wyeth series, the book explores the mechanisms of influence of one artist upon another-even across media-ranging from subconscious borrowings to more direct appropriations. Using colour photography, Welling evokes Wyeth's aesthetic, particularly the importance of place in his work. Paying homage to Wyeth's practice of manipulating subject matter in his seemingly realistic paintings, Welling digitally altered his photographs in subtle ways. This book provides a fascinating look at a major new series by a leading contemporary artist and allows for fresh and insightful connections to Andrew Wyeth. Published in association with the Brandywine River Museum of Art.
