This web site presents
the work of Esther Parada accompanied by texts taken from her writings.


Artist, Educator, Writer

Esther Parada's internationally known work focused on ideological distortions within personal and cultural history. Her intention was to illuminate the invisible relationships that official narratives often obscure, hide, or overlook.

Parada used combinations of text and image to reveal complex realities. She worked with digital manipulation, website potential and multi-media installations. Her critical essays reveal an intelligent mind exploring deep and tangled connections.

This website hopes to serve the accidental traveler who has newly discovered Esther Parada, and to be a resource for the scholar researching this pioneering artist.
