Like her images of the ocean, Vija Celmins' night sky prints are some of her most desirable and well-recognized pieces. These remarkable works are drawn completely by hand before being translated into the prints. Her work bears an uncanny resemblance to photographs, bringing Celmins into the photorealist circle, but she goes one step further, using photorealism to create a contemplative image that faithfully captures the limitlessness of a clear, starry night sky.
