Vija Celmins takes an in-depth look at the artist’s works on paper. Celmins produces exquisitely intricate drawings and prints of natural phenomena, based upon close observation of photographs, her delicate-seeming work addresses subjects that are both powerful and timeless.

This exhibition includes unique graphite, charcoal and eraser drawings such as Untitled (Desert-Galaxy) 1974 and Web #1 1999, as well as prints which employ intaglio, lithographic and relief processes.
