"James Welling’s Wyeth Series at the Brandywine River Museum of Art," Document Journal

In 2010, the Connecticut-born artist James Welling began a series of photographs inspired by the paintings of Andrew Wyeth. Welling is known for numerous experiments with photographic mediums, from Polaroids to photograms to Photoshop, often pushing the boundaries between representation and abstraction, and the Wyeth series is no exception. To mark the completion of the series, the Brandywine River Museum of Art, which showcases works by three generations of the Wyeth family, among other artists, has organized an exhibition along with a newly commissioned work. Drew Sawyer caught up with Welling before the show opened last week.
