New York City based Jane Ursula Harris, independent curator/writer wrote about Webber’s work:
“Through an economy of means that yields variation within repetition, Webber’s minimalist forms reveal the infinite possibilities of the photogram as both medium and process. Like the poetic restraint of Agnes Martin’s painted grids, these abstract black-and-white images - devised from layers of thread - hum with the subtle energy that only the gesture of the hand can provide”
To create the images Webber stretches and layers thread on a pre-cut frame. The resulting images are made by laying this “plate” onto black and white photographic paper in the darkroom. The photograms are printed in editions of five, with variations.
The imagery is built up using layers of thread, to create rhythmic, intuitive compositions, which offer tension between the organic and rectilinear. They suggest macro and micro views of nature, or of the man made.
This photogram is the first print, of a new group of work, which Webber is calling "moving-grams".
The plate is moved on the photo paper during the exposure time in the darkroom. This time-based approach to image making is a new area of exploration for her.
This is 1/5. Each print will be slightly different as the threads on the plate move.
