Watching and Waiting: Enrique Martínez Celaya - Selected sculptures 2005-2023

From March 31 to May 29, 2023, Museo Marino Marini in Florence is pleased to present the first exhibition in Italy by Cuban-born and Los Angeles-based artist Enrique Martínez Celaya.

Trained as a painter Martínez Celaya has also explored sculpture, photography, video and writing, investigating through all these media the fundamental relationships between human beings and the world.

His figurative language takes root in nature, using images such as trees, flowers, rivers, skies, the sea, but also animals and human figures. 


Watching and Waiting: Enrique Martínez Celaya - Sculture Selezionate 2005-2023

For the first time the artist transforms the flickering images of his paintings into concrete sculptures in bronze, cement, wax or wood: sculpture thus becomes a powerful medium through which Martínez Celaya explores highly personal and intimate concepts such as memory, loss, vulnerability, strength of spirit, the ephemeral and hope.
