Barcelona, Spain. 1983. Lives and works in Barcelona.

Art Directon, Graphic Design and Visual Art ľamong other things.

Esther Miquel’s practice explores the physical forms of simple and everyday scenes. There is an intentionality in the produced work but the results aren’t always immediately understood. She is interested in what is reflected, in shiny materials and surfaces because they are good reflectors of visible light. Immediacy, intangibility, impermanence; perceived consciously. She also likes water.

Black Water II (reflection)
Reflection of light depends on the nature of the interface and the origin of the incident ray. Light may be absorbed by the material, light may be transmitted through to the other side, or light may be reflected back. Materials often show some mix of these behaviors but light it’s still light and doesn’t loose its essence no matter what.
