Sky, 1975

Ocean, 1975

I listened to Vija in the recommended video several times. I am particularly struck by her description of making her stones, she says rather than copy, she “re-describes” the objects and leaves “all the evidence [t]here…. the found object and the imagined object”.

To Fix the Image in Memory 1977-1982

Notes on other films of Vija describing her process-

Painting over and over gives depth- an image packed full of attention

What you see is what is there

If I lose it, which I often do, I’ll paint it again on top of itself (Stars)
