Editorial Reviews

Artforum International - Matthew Biro
While Welling's work seems to support the modernist belief that photography can help us understand and refine perception, the artist continually introduces a (postmodern) gap between the image and what is depicted, severing the signifier from its referent, so as to suggest the weakening purchase of the real and concomitant triumph of the simulacrum.
