About the Artist:
At the age of 16 Esther began her studies at the School of Art “La Palma”, studying in 2000 the Higher Degree Module of Applied Arts in Sculpture.
In an almost self-taught way, she began to develop her work in the field of painting, engraving and photocollage. She dedicates her work to the introspection of the dreams and desires of the human mind; During her career, Esther has been very influenced by great artists such as Otto Dix, Max Ernst, Ignacio de Zuloaga and Zabaleta, Julio Romero de Torres and Frida Kahlo.
Esther’s creations represent a macabre game between Good and Evil, with Love and Hate as the guiding thread. Directing the scene towards erotic, sensual and, consequently, sexual acts, although that part is reserved, only interpreted the most curious minds.
“Their women” enjoy and get drunk with an emotional freedom locked in and contained in a great variety of internal conflicts such as suffering, envy, temptation, provocation and the end of life (death). It could be said that the characters possess and proudly show the charms of sin, so much that they turn it into a scene overflowing with romanticism and cruelty.
