James Welling

James Welling has said that his 'New Abstractions' were influenced by modern composers, such as John Cage and Stockhausen: 'What I was really thinking about in them was musicians' scores... I wanted to imagine these pictures as chords.'

Welling began by arranging strips of card on photographic paper to produce photograms. He then scanned these images into a computer to flip them around, before finally making digital negatives from the Photoshop files. These negatives were used to produce the final contact prints - which were made by laying the large negatives directly onto photographic paper.
