Constructed in his own “Dexter” room, Medici’s “Rage” captures the artist’s own inner struggle with the emotion, but also gives a nod to society’s current temperament.
The 48″ x 48″ acrylic on canvas abstract painting shows the progression of an underlying siege of fury that can erupt at a moment’s notice.
“The process started out pretty intense but ultimately became more cathartic as the piece moved toward completion,” said Medici.
Medici fabricated a 6′ x 6′ fully enclosed plastic chamber to paint “Rage” using a combination of aggressive splatter techniques.
“Having my own ‘Dexter’ room was a lot of fun,” quipped Medici. “It certainly was functional and there was so much paint all over. But it did provide a perspective I don’t think I could have achieved without it.”
Medici’s “Rage” is art imitating life in its truest form, serving as a reminder of the dangers of deep rooted anger when it takes hold in the minds and hearts of people.
