Event Description

Martínez Celaya’s interdisciplinary practice, which encompasses painting, sculpture, photography and writing, is influenced by a wide array of interests including Nordic poetry, samurai mores, quantum physics, the emotional mechanisms of kitsch, analytic and continental philosophy, Latin American literature and everyday life. Martínez Celaya begins with the autobiographical to explore the universal. His figures and landscapes may draw from specific references from his own life, but these morph into archetype-like symbols alluding to larger existential concerns of being and consciousness, memory, exile, birth, death and coming of age, among others. The resultant works are engaging yet enigmatic, and evidence a deep engagement with the aesthetics of Romanticism.
