Tenesh Webber

Webber’s  work occupies a space between drawing, sculpture and photography. She creates abstract photograms (camera-less, photographic prints), by making sculptural objects out of thread, cut paper and found objects. Through work in the darkroom, these sculptural objects become the abstract photographic works.  

An extension of her photographic work are the recent experimental drawings, where she layers forms and lines, using charcoal, drafting, and colored pencils, on Stonehenge paper. The drawings have become an integral part of Webber’s  studio practice, and she now works between the two media.

A further extension of the photographic and drawing work are Webber’s recent silkscreen prints, where she selects her photographic imagery as a starting point for multi-layered prints, which has allowed her to continue her abstract explorations further into color and layering.
