Celmins was interested in “not using Pop’s commercial techniques, but a more tender touch.” (Lane Relyea, Robert Gober and Briony Fer, eds., Vija Celmins, London, 2004, p. 15) Celmins made three erasers and one large pencil between 1966 and 1967. By the end of the decade, Celmins expanded this theme, making sculptures of familiar objects – many related to childhood – such as puzzles, pencils, erasers, and combs. The stars effect was achieved with tiny drops of liquid rubber that were sanded off as layers built up. The exhibition includes all fifteen of Celmins’s prints of the ocean’s surface, a subject of central importance to her oeuvre. h�b```b``�g`e`�`d@ A�+G�����Ć�ԂSFU���\�w;��\���yc�GLb�Kɝ��r���U��[����7inӯ ˬ���ʸ�\�[��S�R2���F��5�;�g��ZᑼPy���k���� �y��u��N���1��BV�[n�-P,��dy������Z����QPP����2FA��KYC# P���`+�*�h ��y��C�K(��f%�ÂP�չ0pV��B@,֩� �����X�4��a\/�ʔ�4�əa/O>c&�O.Sޢ�M������2�1��X����N�t ^` >� endstream endobj 80 0 obj <>>> endobj 81 0 obj <>/ExtGState<>/Font<>/ProcSet[/PDF/Text/ImageC]/XObject<>>>/Rotate 0/TrimBox[0.0 0.0 419.528 595.276]/Type/Page>> endobj 82 0 obj <> endobj 83 0 obj <>stream Featured images: Vija Celmins - Japanese Book, 2007-08.
