Enrique Martínez Celaya: Small Paintings 1974-2015 surveys the work of one of the most enigmatic artists of our time through a focus on the artist’s intimately scaled paintings. The exhibition will feature more than 45 small paintings, tracing both chronological developments and many of the artist’s long-abiding themes, while also revealing his evolving approach to composition and technique over four decades. In addition to the two galleries of small paintings, the exhibition will also feature a gallery of five large-scale paintings, providing further insight into the profound body of work and offering additional context to understand the significance of these small works.
