Luminous Instants
Lin Medlin
May 28 - June 14, 2024
Reception: May 31, 5-7pm

Texas painter Lin Medlin’s new landscape show, Lin Medlin: Luminous Instants, opens at Strata Gallery on May 28th and closes on June 14th. The reception for the artist will be held Friday, May 31st from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm. This is Medlin’s second show at Strata Gallery, the first having been in October 2021.

The exhibition of 15 works consists of views from Texas, New Mexico and Colorado, and two coastal scenes, one from Ireland and one from Maine. Notable qualities of the work are vibrant, saturated colors and lyrical color harmonies. There is also a sense of stillness to the paintings as if they are frozen moments in time. Yet paradoxically, the landscapes communicate the flow of natural processes such as the movement of clouds and wind over water, and in place of humans, spirits of bright color haunt these vistas, giving them motion.

Medlin’s ties to the Southwest include study in Taos, and living in Moenave, Arizona, with its natural springs in a desert setting.

Medlin began painting landscapes when he was 15 years old. He earned a BFA with highest honors in painting and art history at Southern Methodist University and worked as a Kress Foundation Fellow in art history at Oberlin College. He also earned a JD at Yale Law School. He lives in Dallas, Texas with his wife and their cat and dog.

Strata Gallery is open from 11am - 5pm, Tuesday – Saturday. For more information about Strata, the current exhibit, and the future schedule of events, please visit the Strata Gallery website, Instagram, or Facebook.
