Inés Esnal

Inés Esnal lives and works in New York, where she is a practicing architect and one of the emergent artistic talents of her generation from Spain. She established her studio in Manhattan in 2007. Esnal’s architectural eye permeates much of the print and installation work that she creates with an intrinsic understanding and hunger for dissecting space. Her exploration of the intersections between mathematical and geometrical space and it’s softer, more poetic side have led her to create works of true depth and beauty that use the line as their key language. Esnal takes the line from the virtual realm and into the physical space of reality by combining digital design with traditional printmaking techniques. In her prints, most recently her Materscapes series, Esnal uses the language of algorithms and 3D software to define inconceivably complex universes, playing with the placement of print plates as if pieces of a puzzle and searching for tensions between shapes. Her pieces reveal weightless cosmogonies, magnetic fields or undefined structures that come to life in her embossed prints or site‐specific installations.
