7th Day of Christmas: Collecting Celaya's Metaphysical World

By Gregory Disney-Britton
Gregory Disney-Britton, sitting in his living room in Indianapolis, holds over his face a signed print by Enrique Martínez Celaya.
On the 6th Day of Christmas, my true love gave to me, a signed, limited-edition print by Enrique Martínez Celaya. Born in Cuba in 1964, Celaya uses landscapes and figures to explore a metaphysical world. We became acquainted with his work during a 2010 visit to see NYC's Cathedral Church of Saint John the Divine plus the Museum of Biblical Art. His work can be found in the public collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and many others. Today's Christmas gift was created during his 2014 artist residency at the Tamarind Institute.
During his 2014 residency at Tamarind, he created the 2014 Collectors Club print along with several other editions exemplary of his interest in the relationship between one’s existence in the present and the past.
