I’ve been looking round for artists who look at space differently from the majority of space/astro art. A lot of space art is heavily inspired by the film industry or by more scientific illustration and this is reflected in the sort of images that they produce.
This is where I saw stumbled across a series of picutres by Vija Celmins. She has deliberately made these images almost abstract with no major landmarks to allow the viewer to orientate themsleves.
To really appreciate these images requires more than a passing glance. They need to be carefully studied over a period of time for all the details to be fully taken in.
It’s interesting to see a more contemplative approach to space.
