Roses decorate the wooden torso of the pale queen. El Rey\, her king\, s tands at her side\, inclines his head and motions to a silent crowd. The to wer\, washed a bright candy apple red\, keeps watch from afar. Pawns and kn ights\, hands poised mid-gesture\, train their golden eyes on a distant hor izon. Magicians caught thinking before they speak? Or are they simply chess pieces in an elaborate imaginary game? What they might have seen or heard remains mysterious. But the charisma conjured by these figures is unmistaka ble.

As per usual with Miguez' meticulously dreamed creations\, each sculpture features found obje cts coupled with specifically crafted structural components: printing block s serve as podium for a small bronze figure\, a tin cake mold suggests a ca refully pleated collar\, a tiny salt spoon adorns the wooden front piece of a circular tower of Chinese boxes and rusted gears\, a porcelain skinned f igure sits cross-legged on a battered doll-sized chair. The combinations of bronze and wood\, the patinas of gunmetal gold and ebony evoke the illusio n of an object-generated light. Shadow and substance\, fantasy and identity \, are interwoven via the history of the 'old' object and the lively accomp lishment of the artist's invention.

Ms. Miguez' work is included in numerous public and private collections. Louis Stern Fine Arts represents the artist exclusively
