Enrique Martinez Ce­laya: Lone Star In the work of Martinez Ce­laya the yearn­ing, aching soul finds its form. Fig­ures in his paint­ings, sculp­tures and in­stal­la­tions are al­ways in the process of ori­ent­ing them­selves, both ex­ter­nally and in­ter­nally, echo­ing the artist’s own per­sonal his­tory of dis­place­ment (L.O.).

Mark Ruwedel: Pic­tures of Hell The artist’s pris­tine, de­tail-rich pho­to­graphs record the places that set­tlers and sur­vey­ors have as­signed a nar­ra­tive of damna­tion.
