The Work of Gildo MedinaJuxtapoz // Tuesday, 22 May 2012
Apparent simplicity is the result of extreme sophistication. Merging traditional techniques and deeply superficiality is part of the signature of Gildo Medina. The precision of his drawings transform his crystallised characters in living glorious sculptures. He creates unexpected beauty. The unmistakeable “Gildo Medina flavour” stems from his capacity of transplanting in the digital world, his celebrated mastery of classical pencils and brushes. The difference come from inside the image, because fusioning virtual with physical gesture makes it all different, especially from the mixing some currently fashion, but remains an external and separate gesture. Genetic change cannot compare with make up.
