Inés Medina: The Concept of Plastic Division


Inés Medina: ‘The Concept of Plastic Division’

Inés Medina’s recent work combines the rigor of formal plastic concepts with a highly developed experimental approach to art making.

In the press release of the exhibition SKOTO GALLERY – Inés Medina and Katherine Taylor (Sept-Oct, 2012), the Director of the gallery defined Medina’s work: “She explores the visual sentiments of nature and employs an inimitable ability to unite color, light and texture to create work of remarkable elegance and lyrical beauty. The impression they leave on the eye is distinct yet intangible. Ines Medina hails from the Basque Country, Spain. Her work pulsates with vigor and evinces a sense of delicate ambiguity that helps summon the true power of their abstract presence. Her work encapsulates a desire for the expressive content, theories and reinvented formal strategies that underpins the aesthetics inherent to the Basque soul. Ines Medina obtained a Master in Fine Art in 1982 at the Bilbao University in Spain. She has widely exhibited in Europe and the US. Her work is included in several private and public collections around the world.”

The Concept of Plastic Division: 20 Series of an Analytical and Experimental Method used for the Awareness of Conscience of Unification or the Identity of The Being.

Two big pillars sustain the totality of her artistic-theoretical investigation. First, a Formal one: Abstract and Geometric (1978-1995) created almost in its entirety in Bilbao, Spain. Second, an Organic–Energetic one: Abstract Symbolic (1996-2013) investigated in New York, with the exception of the Series 20, which was developed in Bilbao.

The paintings exhibited at the Embassy of Spain in Washington, D.C., correspond to a selection of the Abstract Symbolic block and most of them belong to the Series, 15th The Transcendence of the Ego, 18th The Joy of The Being, 19th Burnt Dolls and 20th The Transmutation of the Mind, Capacity to visualize the Totality, and Feminine Identity. This research was completed with the precise intent to modify her own mimecry which was acquired and perpetuated from the unilateral social values.

Admission is free and open to the public. Visiting hours: Monday-Thursday, from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm, and Friday, from 9:30 am to 2:30 pm. With the collaboration of Skoto Gallery, NYC.

Bateratzea – Unificación

Cuando decidí dedicarme al arte, opté por utilizarlo como herramienta de conocimiento de mi misma y del mundo que me rodeaba, en un deseo de entender las enormes divisiones o diferencias sociales, raciales y de género a las que desde niña era vulnerable. A la experimentación con el arte, añadí la experiencia del psicoanálisis freudiano, la psicología profunda y arquetipos de Jung y la radical filosofía de Krishnamurti, para poder visualizar con transparencia mi mundo interior. Igualmente muy pronto me interesé por los nuevos avances de la ciencia en general y específicamente por la Teoría Unificada del Universo.

Contenidos investigados en esta última Serie 20: La Transmutación de la Mente. Capacidad de Visualización de la Totalidad. Identidad Femenina.

Es la investigación plástica-teórica iniciada en enero 2010 posteriormente a la Serie 19, Burnt Dolls-Muñecas Quemadas y Gestación y Parto de Conciencia. El Mimetismo de la Mente. Investigación subvencionada por EMAKUNDE el Instituto de la Mujer del Gobierno Vasco, que tenía como hipótesis la vital importancia de: De inconsciente a inconsciente, línea virtual de comunicación directa de madre a hija en la problemática de género.

Los conceptos investigados con la Serie 20 de la que se expone una selección en el Simón Bolívar Museoa, partieron de un deseo de compresión del ¨no- reconocimiento¨ social histórico de los valores femeninos, habiéndose conseguido incluso la igualdad legal de derechos.

Titulé a esta última investigación o Serie 20: Transmutación de la Mente. Capacidad de Visualización de la Totalidad. Identidad Femenina, con intenciones precisas de ir modificando mi propio mimetismo perpetuado sobre los valores sociales unilaterales adquiridos.

Muy pronto apareció la urgente necesidad del enfrentamiento con el Muro del miedo, la toma de conciencia del funcionamiento dual de La interacción de los espejos, la decisión de coherencia para la máxima potencialidad de Los niveles humanos: físico-emocional-mental, la elevación de conciencia hasta el Posicionamiento de la observadora y poco a poco el acercamiento perceptivo a una cuarta y quinta dimensión plástica… con sentimiento intuitivo de Un Todo Unificado, no dividido.

La asimilación interna de las dos dimensiones nuevas: la profundidad del inconsciente y el posicionamiento de la observadora con capacidad de visualizar la acción de lo opuesto, aporta a la pintura un resultado técnico y perceptual de conocimiento de una realidad más definida, transparente, vital y expansiva

Skoto Gallery Exhibition – NY

Skoto Gallery is pleased to present a two-person exhibition of recent work by Ines Medina (Basque Country, Spain) and Katherine Taylor (USA). This will be their first 2-person exhibition at the gallery. The reception is on Thursday,September 6th, 6-8pm. Both artists will be present.

Despite their varied experiences and personal cultural backgrounds Ines Medina and Katherine Taylor have over the years evolved into artists whose respective works are governed by sensibilities that explore broader, fluid aesthetic possibilities that respond to and signifies current expanded parameters of art-making and socio-cultural identities. As artists working in a milieu fraught with the possibilities of shifting, multiple and hybrid identities, they are acutely aware of the new challenges to the existing models for explaining the forms of belonging and patterns of exchange that the dynamics of globalization have wrought.

Ines Medina’s recent work combines the rigor of formal plastic concepts with a highly developed experimental approach to art making which others have found useful in ways not formally anticipated. She explores the visual sentiments of nature and employs an inimitable ability to unite color, light and texture to create work of remarkable elegance and lyrical beauty. The impression they leave on the eye is distinct yet intangible. Ines Medina hails from the Basque Country, Spain. Her work pulsates with vigor and evinces a sense of delicate ambiguity that helps summon the true power of their abstract presence. Her work encapsulates a desire for the expressive content, theories and reinvented formal strategies that underpins the aesthetics inherent to the Basque soul. Ines Medina obtained a Master in Fine Art in 1982 at the Bilbao University in Spain. She has widely exhibited in Europe and the US. Her work is included in several private and public collections around the world.

Katherine Taylor’s small-scale bronze sculptures are quirky organic forms that are firmly rooted in a framework of references that reflect her willingness to embrace a continuum of cultural precedents and influences. Selected from her on-going Basque Number series, each of the sculpture is symbolic of a number and used by the artist as visual signifiers to learn the Basque language while she was living in northern Spain, and evolve from investigation of forms in which the various angles of vision ultimately requires an intentionally grasp of the whole. There is a formal clarity that is accompanied by an aura of magic and playfulness in her work which helps us expand the way we understand the world. Katherine Taylor currently works as an artist in Houston, Texas. She received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Dartmouth College and a Master of Fine Arts degree from University of Melbourne in Australia. Her work has been featured in the Boston Globe, Albany News, and Sculpture Magazine.
