"I work with images that speak of voids," Medel says, "and the beauty of mathematics through an underlying geometry and use of mathematical principles."
It was the middle of the second year of my three-year MFA program at UCLA when I began developing the artwork I am known for. I quickly felt that this work was my own. I used a combination of techniques that although widely done individually, were not combined in the way I used them by other artists in the field.
The way the ideas, images, & designs were visualized was more distinctive to me. During the twenty-five years I made this work using these techniques and ideas I always felt that I had found my artistic voice. I look at the smaller works as studies because it has been the larger scale work that I have been most interested in constructing. To me this work is more experiential; something larger than the self, and each one was a turning point in my artistic career.
