“The Fire of Heaven: Enrique Martínez Celaya and Robinson Jeffers” presents the work of Los Angeles based artist Enrique Martínez Celaya in conversation with the work of twentieth-century poet Robinson Jeffers (1887-1962). Spanning two decades of the artist’s career, this exhibition demonstrates the impact and longevity of Jeffers’s influence on Martínez Celaya’s practice. In 2019, Enrique Martínez Celaya completed an inaugural Fellowship at the poet’s landmark home in Carmel-by-the-Sea, Tor House, and Hawk Tower. The Fire of Heaven includes paintings and works on paper created during and in response to his stay.
