Vija Celmins is a California based contemporary artist whose pencil drawings of oceans, spider webs and skyscapes are so intricately drawn that they could be mistaken for photographs. It was her ocean drawings that really captivated my attention, and how different they appear from a far, versus way up close. “My work lies between intimacy and distance,” says Celmins. Somewhere in between they are neither drawing nor photograph. The medium is irrelevant. All you see is miles of ocean.
