  • Description

    Vija Celmins thinks big; rendered in delicate fields of etching and mezzotint, seascapes and interstellar constellations are natural imagery of transcendence. Simultaneously expansive and exacting; this seascape is a place to get lost within the exquisite detail of endless waves. If the whole world did fit into a grain of sand, Vija Celmins would have the patience and exactitude to capture it.
