Image of the Day

James Welling Torso 1, 2005–2008 (Chromogenic color print).
I first saw images from this series in the Whitney Biennial a few years ago and it was cool to see this one again recently in Contemporary Works from the Monsen Family Collection, up through November 28th at the Henry Art Gallery in Seattle. The description on the wall says that "after cutting and bending window screens into a form resembling a human torso, Welling placed the shaped screens on photosensitive paper, exposed the paper to light and processed the paper to make a photogram. He then scanned the photogram, 'finessed' the image with Photoshop, and printed the digital file back onto photosensitive paper." More info at the Henry and at David Zwirner.
