'Calm in the Briar,' by Paul Medina, is from his "Roses and Thorns" series of paintings and sculpture expressing one's difficult journey through grief. This painting reflects healing the artist has experienced with soft pink roses and lavender flowers intertwined with varying shades of green vines against a pale blue grey sky. Several of the roses and flower shapes are heavily lacquered paper cutouts that have been applied to the canvas.

Oklahoma, United States

Paul Medina is an Oklahoma artist who has been making art for over 40 years. He is mainly of Spanish and French descent. Although not raised in the traditional ethnic heritage of his ancestors, his work, in many ways, reflects the artistic traditions of those cultures. He has spent his life learning of these cultures that have, without doubt, marked his work in striking way.   

He has always worked in a mixed media format, saying he was “much too restless” to be confined to any one medium. Part of the joy of making art is the struggle through the unknown of materials and new tools. The main search of diverse mediums has been to find the right combination to express his concepts in the best possible way.

His themes have remained constant through the years. Capturing human truths, the ether that binds us all in countless ways, has been the overriding goal of Medina’s work.
