Medina’s vision for his work moves in contrasts: the banal and the profound, the individualistic and the mundane; the revealing and the mysterious. He often uses metaphors and symbols to add an enigmatic and mysterious aura to his work to capture these contrasts through often autobiographical storytelling. After living in Paris for ten years, Medina took inspiration from the storytelling in furniture of the banality of daily life in the French Court found in the 18th century Rococo tradition. In this series, he transformed mostly Louis XV- and Louis XVI-style furnishings, at times deconstructing them to convey his evolved approach to storytelling, using both symbolic figures and integrated, often-metaphoric messages to create narratives that fascinate and invite analysis.
