The artist Enrique Martínez Celaya and the collectors Gudrun and Martin Fritsch have the same passion for many years: their enthusiasm for German artist Käthe Kollwitz and the examination of her work. While the Berlin-based collectors have built a significant private Kollwitz collection, the artist has referenced his 100-year-older predecessor in many of his own works. Perhaps this is why there are telling parallels between the artistic practices of Martínez Celaya and Kollwitz. Both explore the correlation of drawing and sculpture, and both articulate a deeply felt humanism. For this exhibition at Galerie Judin, Enrique Martínez Celaya has created a group of works that capture the essence of his exploration of Käthe Kollwitz, shown here in a fascinating dialogue with works from the Fritsch Collection.

ENRIQUE MARTINEZ CELAYA (*1964) was born in Cuba, grew up in Spain and Puerto Rico, and studied physics and painting in the United States. He is a painter, sculptor, and writer living in Los Angeles, California. His work is represented in exhibitions and collections of important institutions worldwide.

KÄTHE KOLLWITZ (1867–1945) studied in Berlin and Munich and became Germany's first female art professor. Her work in drawing, printmaking, and sculpture made her one of the most significant German artists of the last century.
