Lui Medina shares creative process in talk

CONTEMPORARY artist Lui Medina shares her creative process in a talk, “Maps: In the Folding of Strata,” a free hybrid event organized by the Museum of Contemporary Art and Design (MCAD) of the De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde. Ms. Medina will discuss how she utilizes landscapes as a framework to interrogate form and figure. Her works in exhibitions such as The Notion of the Edge (2018) and Where does landscape begin? (2016) were both at Artinformal. They explored the plasticity of topography and how expanses can become isolated parcels, islands into sprawls, landscapes without landmarks, mainly with the use of graphite. This interest in shapes and the organic has in turn also molded the materials and the canvases that she uses for her drawings and paintings. Ms. Medina’s works are part of MCAD’s ongoing exhibition “Adaptation: A Reconnected Earth”. The show proposes an approach to determining the present within the realities of a changed climate, a despairing planet and a recently renewed humanity. “Maps: In the Folding of Strata” is free and open to the public. It will be held on April 20, 3 p.m. Interested participants may register through For more information, e-mail or call 8230-5100 local 3897.
