Néstor Sanmiguel Diest
Dolce & Gabbana
1997
The meshes painted by Néstor Sanmiguel Diest show a balance between austerity and abundance, between signs and figures. This artist, a leading light of the 1980s avant-garde in Aragon, constructs his works as an obsessive drawing of lines methodically delimiting fragmented spaces. Some divide the surface of the work into rectangles of various sizes placed over a handwritten text or typescript. Others are strongly suggestive of geometric abstraction.

---In a 1980s artistic milieu that was dominated by abstraction in language and materials, the work of Néstor Sanmiguel is closer to that of Post-Conceptual American artists who favoured emphasising the sign and the consumer society in a postmodern withdrawal from Pop art principles. Néstor Sanmiguel constructs his work like a veritable visual palimpsest.
