Miguel Rózpide (°1997, Pontevedra, Spain) makes photographs and conceptual artworks. He currently lives and works in Brussels. Represented by Gleam Gallery (BXL).

With a certain predilection for uncontrolled delicacy, Miguel Rózpide portrays today's youth. Instead of functioning as a catalog of premeditated poses, his work provides us with confidential situations, while calling into question certain social codes and the repressions that accompany them. The artist reflects on the fine line between concepts such as appearance and identity, desire and guilt, or the wild and stuffed. An inventory of the human condition in society, paying special attention to the new countercultural movements and their representatives.

In his pictures, the sublime often reveals itself at the intersection between isolation and balance evoked by serene atmospheres found in the ordinary. By photographing recognisable scenarios open to multiple interpretations, viewers are able to create a resonance between an inner world and an outside world, finding an unexpected state of catharsis.
