Distributed by the University of Nebraska Press for Whale and Star Press Enrique Martinez Celaya's aesthetic project revives and reinterprets the classic Western metaphysical tradition relating aesthe... tics to ethics, the Beautiful to the Good and the True. His work embodies his belief that being a certain kind of artist means being a certain kind of person and that in and through art he gains clarity about himself and his relationship to the world. His project is thus profoundly ethical and, in important ways, spiritual. Through art Martinez Celaya reconciles himself to the world as he reconciles his past with his present and projects his future. This volume also participates in the process of reconciliation and projection by interpreting his work through the series, cycles, and projects, which include painting, sculpture, photographs, poetry, and prose that have defined it since the mid-1990s. Curator of the Sheldon Memorial Art Gallery, Daniel A. Siedell, has worked with Martinez Celaya on several projects and offers a radical commentary on his work, arguing that Martinez Celaya's ambitious aesthetic project is best understood as an embodiment of a religious Weltanschauung and as a search for that most elusive of religious virtues: hope. The complex cohesion of Martinez Celaya's work is further explored by other writers, who by placing it in different contexts reveal their own distinctive engagement with it. Art critic Thomas McEvilley, a philologist who writes about art, philosophy, and religion, explores how Martinez Celaya has combined Germanic feeling with a surrealist plastic vocabulary to present a world. Literary critic and Paul Celan scholar John Felstiner traces the contours of an aesthetic lineage that includes Goya, Eliot, Celan, and Beethoven. Former Washington Post journalist and Hollywood producer and writer Christian Williams adopts the conventional artist's chronology to craft a powerful account of Martinez Celaya's life, which has become intimately entwined with his own.
