James Welling's Glass House

The Minneapolis Institute of Arts is showing James Welling’s Glass House images through March 2011 and it may just be enough to get me to Minnesota before the cold sets in. Welling’s shots of Phillip Johnson’s iconic Connecticut home are a revelation. Using a digital camera and colored filters he recreates the building with new great effect. It’s as if one is peering through stained glass into Johnson’s house. They’re a treat for die-hard modernists like myself.
