About

Black and white photograph. Unframed. Webber’s photographic work explores the intersection of photography and sculpture. In her studio practice, she begins with a sculptural object; the object is made of hand-cut shapes or manipulated found objects. The photographs are made by shooting the objects with a large format view camera, and printing the negatives in various sizes, on a mat surface paper, that has the look of charcoal on watercolor paper. Webber’s aim is to create an abstract image, which explores perceptions of negative and positive space, movement or stasis in an image, and light as a trace of movement and space. This is edition 7 of 10. Tenesh Webber is a Canadian abstract photographer whose work explores and challenges conventions of traditional black and white photography. She lives in Jersey City, New Jersey and works in Bushwick, Brooklyn. Webber’s process begins with sketches, in which she develops the image ideas. She then creates two-dimensional objects out of sewing thread, or marker on plexiglass. She builds the images through layering, stretching and cutting the thread, and through repetitive line drawing onto plexiglass. These “plates” are used to create cameraless photographic images. Hand placement and loose threads offer an element of chance into the work, and each print within a series is unique. The resulting abstract images create rhythmic, intuitive compositions and offer tension between the organic and rectilinear. They suggest macro and micro views of nature, or of the man-made. Her work falls within a tradition of “rayographs”, or photograms, established by artists such as Man Ray, and Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, in the 1920’s, artists whose work in photography was informed by their painting and sculptural practice. Building on these artists work, Webber has developed a unique approach to the creation of her photograms, integrating elements of sculpture and drawing while also incorporating chance operations.
