dear diary....seems I still alive...seems that no one has done

Esther Planas is the achingly and archetypally poetic visionary,
playing out her own life/love/art dramas in her work meshing
it all together in a glorious fuck it collage. Her confessional
practice predates Emin, influenced instead by the original hardcore
exponent of the genre, Kathy Acker.
Esthers is a plaintive world where everything is continually
in flux. Her persona shifting between the wannabe roles of rebel,
rock-star, artist, painter, poet, porn star and writer. In her art
this personal world is opened up, creating a space for the audience
to drift through, to read her narrative as they would a text.
As we tumble down the rabbit hole and teeter on the edge of chaos
we realise that unlike Alice, Esthers wonder is an underland
created from inside her own fetishes.
Esther Planas is a visual artist, writer and musician she
is the publisher of Dark Star and plays with Dirty Snow.
