Distributed by the University of Nebraska Press for Whale and Star Press Enrique Martínez Celaya’s aesthetic project revives and reinterprets the classic Western metaphysical tradition relating aesthetics 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 Martínez 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 Martínez Celaya on several projects and offers a radical commentary on his work, arguing that Martínez 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 Martínez 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 Martínez 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 Martínez Celaya’s life, which has become intimately entwined with his own.

"Martínez Celaya: Early Work" offers a great point of reference for those who are new to his work. Daniel A. Siedell provides views on the artistic creation of Martínez Celaya from the understanding of Religion; a process where the artwork and the creator share a sacred connection that has a responsibility not only to each other but to the World.
Once you start reading the book, instead of answering questions, it creates new ones. It also opens my interest in German philosophers and artists, Spanish and Russian poets.
The Weltanschauung (world view as a fundamental concept to German Philosophers) is referenced by Siedell in his intention to connect Martínez Celaya's work with Religion. In a time and day where most of the western population is walking away from the ties of organized religions, it's interesting to find an artist that is looking back to the institution. The essays never describe or reference a particular church or belief but it seems to point to the Christian hierarchy.
In western society, religion is always intertwined with the idea of salvation, so is the implication in this case that art and its practice is what can save us? If so, what exactly is it to save us from? Death? Being forgotten? Losing our selves in the world? Not being able to feel, to love and to be loved? Or the fear of discovering that life is meaningless and that this present moment is all that we have.
Maybe art is an illusion that tells us there is meaning, and works of art are signs or icons of hope. The artist as well as the preacher may represent the relief we need, to believe that there is something else we cannot see with our eyes alone but can at least be guided by these works of art and/or with the discourse of the artist (or the holy man).
What is the responsibility of the artist not only with his works of art but with his deeds in life and all his affairs? The vision that Martínez Celaya offers from the ethical point of view of the artist, provokes me to question the pursuit of Truth, the belief in something better than what we are now, the sacrifice of a life for an ideal.

The risk of art lived and internalized as a religion, however, will always be to become dogma, the idea of only one way and one truth and the negation of anything that is not aligned with its "Weltanschauung". What would the believer be without the non-believer?

Experiencing "Martínez Celaya: Early Work" is an interesting way to question your own beliefs and your presence in the world.

"Art is a means for Martínez Celaya to reconcile himself to the world as he reconciles his past with his present and projects of the future."

Early Work examines the cycles and projects of artist, Enrique Martínez Celaya, whose work consists of painting, sculpture, photographs, works on paper, poetry and prose. The work is introduced and examined by curator and scholar, Daniel A. Siedell as well as Thomas McEvilley, art critic, poet, novelist and scholar.

Each project is illustrated by images of the work in the studio, combined with notes by the artist and finally a selection of completed work from the cycle. Beginning in reverse chronology, the reader is taken through Martínez Celaya's projects dating from 2006 back to childhood drawings. Early Work offers an in-depth examination of the Martínez Celaya's artistic process.
