Beyond the Visible
Ascaso Gallery - Miami: May 2021
Ascaso Gallery presents in its new space in Miami, the exhibition Beyond the visible by the Venezuelan contemporary artist Carlos Medina, who has brought from Paris, city where he resides, his proposals to creates a novel group of works on his recent plastic investigations of neutrinos; along with works that relate light, shadows and geometric abstraction. The exhibition, accompanied by a catalog written by Adriana Herrera, PhD, will be open until July 31, 2021.
According to Herrera, “the inexhaustible vein of his art comes from this dual faculty of clearly perceiving two orders. The first responds to the perfect visible geometry: to discover in the rain, as he says, 'the fragment of a line suspended in a diagonal circumstance'. That order is the source of his drops sculpted in wood or metals and arranged as precipitations in his spatial interventions.” The second order is inspired by the no less perfect geometry that, as the title of this exhibit points out to us, it is Beyond the visible. “If geometric abstraction developed in a manner foreign to the visible world, voluntarily separated from all referential links of the image, the renovation of Carlos Medina’s work stems from his approach to the real geometry of the visible and invisible”,says Herrera.
Beyond the Visible will display 48 artworks including spatial interventions, suspended sculptures and wall-mounted pieces. Medina explains: “I seek uncover the shadows that live from light and to make visible the energy and substance of the neutrino particles, that being eternal and invisible can pass through everything.” Since the seventies, anticipating even the first scientific images of these particles, he investigated this essential form of matter in multiple media.

De lo Material a lo Esencial: Book
Denise René Gallery - Paris: November 2017
Next Tuesday, November 21, the act will be held to present the book MEDINA. From material to essential, at the Denise René Gallery -Rive Gauche- in Paris,
Written by the renowned curator and art critic, Dr. Bélgica Rodríguez, this 360-page book reveals the journey of the Venezuelan artist Carlos Medina for more than 40 years in his research and unstoppable work. A work that, always starting from the geometric abstraction, explores innumerable materials and processes, forms and phenomena. With its refined sculptures and in some cases its almost impossible carvings, or from its monumental scales integrated in a spatial discourse, it evolves towards the dematerialization of volume and the taking of space, in which matter is only present within the limits of a new suggested quantum mass His search: a geometric interpretation of the universe through the essence and the imperceptible.
A book that introduces a poetic work in itself, with a prologue by Rafael Cadenas, the great poet of Venezuela. It is also conceived almost as a piece of art under the graphic concept of Zilah Rojas, who, along with her excellent technical team, interprets the cleanliness and purism of the artist, integrating the drawings that precede her three-dimensional creation to show them as two-dimensional works faithful to her concept.
It is a publication published and printed in Paris, under the coordination of Éditions Hermann in its two versions, Spanish - English, and Spanish - French, with translations by Dag Buxell (English) and Carlos Parra Pérez (French); as well as with the collaboration of LCP + Art, its director, Leonor Parra, also from Ascaso Gallery and its president Antonio Ascaso. It can be purchased online or in the main specialized art bookstores, in France, Belgium, Monaco, Luxembourg, Canada, Spain, Germany, United Kingdom, United States and soon also in Venezuela.

Marion Gallery - Panamá: From June 18, 2015

Articruz is an atelier for artists, in which each one of them can develop and even perfection their own work. Different discourses and artistic proposals meet there sharing a common base: experimenting with non-traditional materials and techniques in the art world, and the quest for the optimization of production processes.
Therefore, each one of these artists is an utter representative of their time who uses the resources given by current technological advances in order to propose artistic solutions and to convey their discourse. Here is where the interest and commitment shared by Marion Gallery and Articruz lie: supporting the artistic manifestations that take on the challenges and opportunities of nowadays world with the goal of innovating in constant search of new art proposals.
It is a source of pride and pleasure to us to present this plural, diverse and current sample, in which sixteen contemporary artists display their proposals along with a representative ensemble of works entirely produced in Panama.

The Fundación Gabinete del Dibujo y la Estampa of Valencia and the Topel Páez collection, on occasion of their ninth anniversary, present Carlos Medina’s work from the last fifteen years, which goes beyond the formal limits known by the sculpture; thus, threads, leaves, geometry, surface, drops, fawned paper and subatomic particles meet within a discourse making the space be the sculpture object by means of the line. Likewise, the resizing of the paper may be witnessed, in which the folding becomes a volumetric state, and the spatial sublimity is projected throughout the line and the dot, the essential elements of drawing.
Esencial - Essential
MACZUL - Maracaibo: 2014
After successful experiences in Mexican museums, the exhibit ESENCIAL by Carlos Medina arrives in Venezuela. In it, he incorporates unprecedented proposals of his over 40-year long career. It can be visited until the end of May, 2014, at the Museo de Arte Contemporáneo del Zulia -MACZUL.
We will be able to enjoy some of the most contemporary proposals by Medina, among them, his “Fugas” (“Escapes”) in nylon, which evoke light beams; “Neutrinos”, which lead us to a vibrating cosmos; “Superficies” (“Surfaces”), where he combines the techniques of marking and routering; the installations of “Gotas” (“Drops”) in metallic bars at monumental scales; and also his “Gotas” (“Drops”) in aluminum, even larger. At last, we will have his Laser experience in the 80s as homage to Lucio Fontana.
This unique selection is the result of the artist’s permanent research and work, and it reflects different moments of his constant evolution. Carlos Medina has left a trail in all museums and awards, and important museums, symposia, spaces and recognitions consolidate his growing international presence, where he represents what is avant garde in sculpture and plastics of our country and beyond our borders.
