Image coming soon.

Tyler Green interviews painter Vija Celmins about her paintings and career. An exhibition of Celmins' work will be on view at The Art Museum Riga Bourse from April 11 – June 24, 2014.

Celmins remarks that early in her career she "started going back to images, after making stroke-like paintings, deKooning-like paintings, and trying to make paintings that were totally about the paint… I went to objects, painting objects [and] instead of making strokes I tried to eliminate the strokes… and try to make a very still surface, which I thought was the essence of painting. It's something that doesn't move, something you have to come to terms with, and I think that's actually that runs throughout my whole work."
