Enrique Martínez Celaya’s Enigmatic Art Reflects on Nature’s Power Using Paint, Canvas, and an Actual Airplane
Show of the Day: "Nothing That Is Ours" at Fredric Snitzer Gallery in Miami.

“Nothing That Is Ours” at Frederic Snitzer Gallery
December 1, 2017–January 14, 2018
What the Gallery Says: “A series of paintings and sculptures—including one large-scale outdoor installation—that consider the sea as a metaphor of both possibility and destruction. The title of the exhibition suggests estrangement, distance and indifference, and invites thoughts of possession and desire.”
Why It’s Worth a Look: In addition to being a painter, Martínez Celaya is a physicist, poet, and humanities professor, and he brings a real gravitas to these mysterious paintings. And if that doesn’t intrigue you, then the actual airplane in the show might.
