︎colección primavera/verano 2019

Rompimos la simbiosis, perecen los corales.

Esta colección es una reflexión sobre el blanqueo y extinción del coral en los arrecifes. En los diseños se ve una transición de color; colores vivos a blanco y luego a café para demostrar la vida y muerte del coral. Bordados y chaquiras en organza para transmitir el sentimiento del mar y la transicioón de color por el calentamiento global causando blanqueo en los corales. 

“La degradación de los océanos es cada vez más descontrolada y estudios demuestran que una tercera parte de los arrecifes coralinos están en peligro de extinción. Los corales son el equivalente oceánico a las selvas amazónicas en la superficie”(Ecología Verde).

My name is Isa Guadalupe Medina and I am a designer and artist based in Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico. My work focuses on the intricacy and detail that is reflected from nature and my roots. The different motifs I create are inspired by feelings that emerge from the rare beauty and constant change of nature. I received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Parsons The New School for Design, New York. Since then I have been focusing on creating hand-beaded and woven pieces that explore movement and transcendence of time in relation to the human body/experience.

Artist Statement

Through the years of creating and appreciating art, I realized that what I liked most about it was the process and time it took to create something. When I see a piece of art I wonder about the time, work and thought behind it. It is not just about making something beautiful or interesting but how it makes me feel and how much of my heart goes into it. I learned that loss is something that we all have to deal with at one point in our lives and we have to accept the inevitable. I began to explore with the unpredictable; dissolving materials, garments coming apart, transforming, playing around with the thought that nothing lasts forever, everything is transient. Change and transformation is what I want to explore more through my designs. The excitement and, yet, sadness of watching your creation come apart is what life is all about, constant change.

This is only the beginning of my exploration, the unpredictability of change.

- Isa Guadalupe Medina
