Unbroken Poetry


Text By Anne Trueblood Brodzky; Conversations With Donald Baechler And Amnon Yariv. 112 Pages. 78 Illustrations, Including 53 In Color. Hardcover.

With rare clarity and restraint, Martínez Celaya explores loss, alienation, foreignness and beauty as well as new ways to think about the art object and the problems it raises. What emerges is a body of work radically concerned with meaning. Loss and its transcendence through consciousness is the pervasive theme in Unbroken Poetry: The Work of Enrique Martínez Celaya.

Martínez Celaya’s world is revealed through an introspective essay by San Francisco writer and curator, Anne Trueblood Brodzky.

Drawing from the artist’s sketchbooks, personal interviews with the artist and the works of Martínez Celaya, Brodzky describes his impetus and methods in a conceptual volume of exceptional beauty and voice. The artist’s disciplined joint pursuit of physics and art fuels conversations with New York artist Donald Baechler and Caltech physicist, Amnon Yariv. In Unbroken Poetry, we are invited to stand close to the visions of Enrique Martínez Celaya, not only to observe and empathize with his world but also to acknowledge the images brought forth from our own.
