In his somber images of the natural world, Enrique Martínez Celaya probes grandiose metaphysical and philosophical questions. Born in Cuba, Martínez Celaya moved to the United States to study physics, and while completing his doctorate, he took up painting, recognizing it as his preferred medium to confront such issues. Since expanding his practice to sculpture and installation, painting remains the core of his work, in which he often refers to mystical ideas or to fairy tales. The earnest and even grim tone of his practice stems from what he believes is a cynical condition of the contemporary world. “I think that’s the temperature I feel inside. Isolation, solitude and loneliness, I’m always feeling the condition of things—or what you could call the illusion of things—being separate,” the artist has said.
