"Lena Medeiros what a talent! Her collages display raw talent in a unique art that translate creativity and beauty from the soul into charming visual portrait."

- Patrick Jerome, Executive Director at Boston International Film Festival

 

 

"Lena's work conjures immaterial realms of color and light. Fluidity and immediacy are the primary attributes with their luminous hues that rise and fall, drift and spread in free flowing compositions. They are playful yet are open to the viewer's interpretation. I believe she would be a worthwhile addition to any exhibit in New York and I wish her all the best." - Francis Dosne, Artist & former curator for The Guggenheim Museum

 

 

"When I first saw Lena's work I was mesmerized by the color palettes and her distinctive collage technique. It is fascinating to try and unravel the intricate stories that are woven into each piece of art. I'm proud to have "Marilyn" as a part of my art collection." - Barbara Clipper, Patron

 

 

"The artist is the one privileged that sees the divine in the banal, the extraordinary in the trivial and has the ability to communicate all of it to us the ordinary mortals. That is the way Lena Medeiros's art touches and impresses, without a doubt revealing herself as the premier new artist of 2005."

Dr. Domicio Coutinho, President of the Brazilian Endowment for the Arts

 

       

"Lena Medeiros is a traveler and a dreamer. Travel is a dream statement and Lena's collages are dream documents, light, uneven impact but rich with information. Her amazing creativity transform and make us part of her dream." Ana Mathiesen,  NY Curator & CT doscent for The Florence Griswald Museum

 

 

 "Lena Medeiros collage artwork are a reflection of inspiration, life, passion and beauty all coming together in the most colorful and modern way"   -  Natalie Morales, Television Journalist at NBC Network

 


"Lena Medeiros has a technique developed by herself during her art carrier. Nobody knows her unique way of the collage artwork itself plus the preservation of the screen. Talent, knowledge and emotion are her trade mark."  

Yara Sword, Psychologist/English Teacher

 


"What a rare and organic talent Lena has! It makes me so happy and proud to see a Brazilian counterpart engulfed with such an artistic talent.  Each and everyone of Lena's collage work has the perfect balance, in an intimate scale, that draws the viewers’ attention from far. I really like this particular piece, Dancing with Flowers, as it carries the perfect movement, with vibrant colors in a harmonious balance. The artist is able to bring all of these positive components together in her art. The variations of the dramatic, the subtle, the contrasting and the pale tones present in her collage makes for a true representation of her moods. As a photographer, I truly enjoyed working with

Lena and talking about her artistic inclinations. I admire Lena for taking her work to a very distinctive dimension. Lena's collage work offers a depth which, in so many ways, represents her kindness and down-to-earth individual that she is." Silvia M.Gerber, Photographer

 

 

 

   

 

 

International Curatorial Review - Portuguese

   "Lena Medeiros, com maestria explora esta técnica (colagem) com poesia quando compõe um tema nascido de suas idéias, fazendo uma composição de contrapontos luz e sombras. Lena cria uma gama de possibilidades proporcionadas pela colagem, uma espécie de releitura da vida quando nos deparamos com sua obra.

   A produção das peças, parecem brotar da capacidade que a artista tem com relação `a vida, registrando a nossa história através do imaginário. A obra Enígma revela aspecto, filosófico, social, político , religioso e psicológico, o trabalho revela a preocupação de ser propício a instigar à reflexão sobre o tema, naturalmente como o talento nato da artista que deixa fluir por veredas menos percorridas, instigando a explorar a imaginação. Propositalmente ela deixa tranparecer as emendas como retalhos da vida, são fragmentos que se mesclam resultando um trabalho orgânico, elegante e atual. Cabe a arte e a criadores como a artista Lena Medeiros retomar histórias, imagens originais encontradas no lixo que se transformam no luxo com as suas soluções técnicas de composição plástica. É um trabalho contemporâneo que permite ao contemplador revivar a memória de um tempo, o registro da vida com sugestões profundas,criando efeitos que ultrapassam os limites das sensacões visuais."- Alcinda Saphira, Artista & Curadora
