Arts Interview: Part Three Enrique Martínez Celaya, Artist and Author
Details of Photo Below.
Enrique Martínez Celaya talks about talks about how he sets up his studio; whether art has a role in reflecting and shaping conflict, and giving a voice to the voiceless; how and why he avoids getting too comfortable with his art; the connection between his memories and his work; why the art world is a hotbed for narcissism and what the antidote might be; and the importance of how art is taught in schools and higher education. Ruth Copland spoke to Enrique Martinez Celaya at his inspiring studio in Los Angeles, with multiple vast rooms both to paint in and display his work, as well as a small library, and a beautiful, lush garden featuring some of his sculptures.
Enrique Martínez Celaya trained as an artist as well as a physicist, and early in his career invented several patented laser devices before abandoning physics for art. An award-winning artist, he works predominantly in painting, but also in sculpture, photography, poetry and prose. His art work has been widely exhibited internationally and is held in the public collections of international institutions around the world. Enrique is the author of papers in art, poetry, philosophy, and physics and several books including 'Collected Writings and Interviews 1990-2010', and 'On Art and Mindfulness: Notes from the Anderson Ranch'. He has worked in collaboration with scientists, entrepreneurs, writers, musicians and architects, including the Canadian rock-band, Cowboy Junkies, the poet and Nobel-Prize-winning chemist, Roald Hoffmann, and the novelist Mary Rakow.
