In a Euclidean language, arcs of neon materialize from cement cylinders. The triangle, the semicircle and the rectangle, paired with geode fragments, act as abstracted symbols of imaginary places – combining a minimalist vocabulary with narrative. These mini monuments stand only inches tall yet have the ability to teleport. Through the sculpture’s geometric forms, one can take in an entire universe. Esther Ruiz’s imagery originates in the exploration of fictional landscapes, informed largely by a love of science fiction. Her objects ultimately work to visually articulate an emotional state of mind, by applying her intimate understanding of neon technology with mathematical acuteness.
