About the Artist
Kat Medina (b. 1984) is a painter who utilizes elements of craft-making in her works. She explores making places through architectonic nuances in gesture and in the configuration of color. Medina’s notable first solo exhibition was held in her house, this event a milestone to her investigation on domesticity and ‘bigger circles’. Medina graduated from Far Eastern University in Manila with a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts. Her first solo show was held in the artist’s studio space and her first solo exhibition in a commercial venue was last October 2013 in The Drawing Room. She has also represented the gallery in Art Taipei 2014.
Medina has been involved in thinking about craft and object-making in the face of popular production. Her last solo exhibitions in The Drawing Room presents the different facets and periods in which she articulated this consciousness of gesture and the agency through which things and signs are made and circulated in society. As a painter, she de-materializes the process of mechanical production through deliberate mark-making. She takes from the world of known objects to a world of performing.
