starry night vija celmins

This artist deals with the issues of space and creating a third dimension within her work, essentally trying to create a third dimension within her 2 dimensional prints. She does this through layering of multiple images, and also leaving bits of the paper clear to give the piece context in the medium and enhance depth. Vija Celmins dabs tiny speaks of paint on a canvas. The object of her attention is a starry night sky, an image that she has been painstakingly creating by applying paint, rethinking, sanding it off, and adding more.
