STATEMENTWebber’s photograms are created by placing sewing thread onto photographic paper and exposing the paper to a light source in the darkroom. Each single thread creates a finely made line with subtle variations, suggesting a drawing made by hand. The threads are stretched, layered and often left to fall into place, mapping the artist’s process. Knots, loops, and imperfections in the lines suggest breaks, repairs, beginnings and endings. In its process, line quality and composition, the work occupies a space between photography, drawing and sculpture
The photograms are printed on Ilford black and white paper, in small editions.
