Statement

XAVIER ROBLES DE MEDINA is a Surinamese artist working in painting and sculpture. His sensibilities are deeply rooted in an observational drawing practice as well as an objective dissection of the painting as a three-dimensional object. He questions social and artistic categorizations, in search for a truth regarding his identity as it relates to the painting tradition. His distinctions during his BFA include First Place for Black and White Drawing, as well as the Canson Award at the 2010 Foundations Honors Show. His work has been published on the cover of Strathmore canvas pads, the cover of the Savannah COLLEGE of Art and Design graduate catalog, and reviewed in both Sranan Art Xposed vol. 5 and the Savannah Morning News. Medina is the gallery's youngest and among its most promising artists. His complexity of concept and the clarity with which he creates are critical foundations for the young body of work.
