Darian Mederos and pluriball paintings

The temptation to burst the air bubbles of bubble wrap is one of those childhood memories that is hard to resist, and Darian Mederos does not succeed in resisting it either. On the contrary, he chooses to make this shock-absorbing packaging the focus of his artistic production.
From Santa Clara, on the island of Cuba, the 30-year-old artist set off to experiment with his own style and works that are conceived in two layers, which blend together depending on the point of view from which they are viewed. For Mederos, bubble wrap is like a lens for focusing on subjects. Looking at the canvases from close up, the work appears as an abstract set of short, fast signs that do not create defined, real silhouettes; looking away from the point of view, one then begins to interpret the works, to recognise the faces portrayed, the poses and the naked, sincere bodies.

The action requested and suggested to the viewer thus adds a narrative to the works, as well as an important component such as movement, inducing the idea that there is a sound that brings the subjects portrayed out of their condition of merely imagined figures.
Exhibited from London to New York, Darian Mederos’ work is a photorealistic quest to represent the vastness of the human experience, revealing everything clearly or not at all, it is in the interest of the eye to discover the nuances.
Cultural expressions are the leitmotif of Mederos’ humanity and work, a constant temptation the artist cannot resist, like stepping on that bubble wrap.
