The limits of infinity. The vast skyscape of an astronomical constellation plays host to an artist’s acute discernment of surface and perspective.

Quote

“Vija Celmins’s mature work is a repeated image of uninhabitability, without foothold or air. It depicts space liquefied or rarefied, and further carbonized in the rendering. It is a space of drowning or asphyxiation, and, though without fantasy’s comforts, of dreams.” Nancy Princenthal Parkett No. 44, 1995
