ESTHER MIQUEL is a Barcelona-based artist and designer with a keen interest in minimalistic aesthetics.

 

To date, her art projects have explored silence, nature, empty spatial qualities, the beauty in imperfection, and error as they are all part of our reality. Her artwork is made with minimal interventions and a strong taste for reduced color palettes —with black and white being the dominant colors— and often utilizing reused, recycled and relatively basic materials such as marble powder, bitumen, dibond, cement, polyethylene, kaolin, flour, glue and paint. Sustainable practices are present in all of her work as a declaration of environmental awareness and responsibility.

 

Her abstract shapes and accidental paint marks on large canvases invite us to participate in the act of observation, reflection, introspection, and silence from where art can perform its noblest functions.

CODE OF PRACTICE:

01. Silence

02. There is always nothing

03. Sit in nature

04. Absolutely still; perfectly quiet

05. Pay attention to the space between things and sounds

06. Reveal beauty with minimal expression

07. Combine elegance with absurdity for a poetic result

08. Observe. That’s the key to understand, to see

09. If silence feels unpleasant, then is not silence

10. Hold the nothingness

11. Precise marks, balanced strokes

12. EMBRACE ERROR FOR AN OPTIMAL LIFE

13. Mistakes are not mistakes (anymore)

14. Review life continually
