ARTIST ROOMS: Vija Celmins
2 February – 6 May 2018
Free to all
Discover the work of Latvian-American artist Vija Celmins, whose explorations of the natural environment span sea and sky.
Drawn from the ARTIST ROOMS collection, this exhibition of work by New York-based artist Vija Celmins is one of three displays at The New Art Gallery Walsall to present contemporary artists who explore the theme of physical or psychological wilderness.
Celmins’ densely layered drawings and prints engage with the natural world, from the surface of the ocean to expanses of desert, spider’s webs to night skies. Her images prompt questions around representation, perception and human experience and remind us of the complexity of the simplest things that can be observed in nature.
