Paul Medina Art - Home of Oklahoma Artist Paul Medina
Medina has been making original mixed media art for over 50 years. His themes have remained constant through the years. Capturing human truths, the ether that binds us all in countless ways...
Through the late seventies and on into the early nineties, Medina flourished as a gallery artist. He was represented throughout the United States; doing many one and two person shows each year. Besides the many galleries that represented Medina over the years, he also exhibited at the Oklahoma Museum of Art, The Philbrook Museum of Art in Tulsa, and the Heard Museum in Phoenix, Arizona.

The Spaces In Between 2022
I am an artist who works in series. Sometimes the series lasts for a few years, some for decades. I either tire of the imagery or medium and feel the need to explore, change, and do something different. Once a series ebbs, I may spend a few months or years creatively playing, slowly developing new imagery, and many times introducing new materials as well.
This collection of work in this exhibition includes both works of a new series, and some of the pieces I played with in between one series and the other. Usually, no one sees these works. I decided to show these works in this show.
All the works speak to the sense of place and the comfort and security it can bring.
Some pieces are collage paintings of paper and various liquid mediums on canvas others are amulets/mobiles and made of low fired clay, acrylic paint, steel, copper.
