Vija Celmins “Selected Prints”

Senior & Shopmaker Gallery

poster for Vija Celmins “Selected Prints”

This event has ended.

On view in Gallery 2 are selected prints dating from 1983 to 2016 by New York-based painter, Vija Celmins. Since the early 1960s, alongside her paintings and drawings, Celmins has developed an extraordinary body of work in print media, meticulously rendering details of the natural environment through a careful exploration of process and mark making. Derived from photographs rather than direct observation, her images dispel romantic notions of nature’s sublime while retaining an inherent elusive mystery and poetic resonance. The images on view will include the artist’s signature night skies, ocean surfaces, and spider webs, subject matter that informs Celmins’ lifelong focus and exploration, a full spectrum of which will soon be on view in New York in her upcoming career retrospective, To Fix the Image in Memory. Organized by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the exhibition opens in New York at the Met Breuer September 24, 2019 and continues through January 12, 2020.
