Enrique Martinez Celaya: Splinter. Return

Boy With Flowers Enrique Martinez Celaya... Boy With Flowers (2004, Oil and tar on canvas). From Enrique Martinez Celaya: Splinter. Return at Greg Kucera Gallery. "...The Atlantic seems different than I remember. It is probably that for eighteen years I had been near the Pacific, my eyes used to hills diving into the grayish waters of the California Coast. There is no soil in Florida. Only sand. No oaks. Only pine trees and palms. At night, the salty smell coming from the sea is not a Northern smell, like the Pacific's, but a complex Southern mixture of death and melancholia that some around here call excitement."
