LOS ANGELES, CA.- Regen Projects presents an
exhibition of new works by Los Angeles artist James Welling. This exhibition
will present new photographs from the “Glass House” series and a video
installation “Sun Pavilion.”
The “Glass House” photographs were taken
over the course of three years (October 2006 to October 2009) at the iconic
Philip Johnson Glass House in New Canaan, Connecticut. The photographs of the
House (1949), the Lake Pavilion (1962), the Lincoln Kirstein sculpture (1985),
and the Brick Guest House (1949) were made with an array of color filters
positioned in front of the lens of a digital camera. The luminous and sublime
“Glass House” photographs utilize color in bold and unexpected ways and further
the artist’s examination of light, color, and reflectivity and how these
elements articulate architectural form. The exhibition opens on January
30 and runs through March 6, 2010.
