Regina Scully – C24 Gallery, New York
Born 1975 in Norfolk, Virginia, USA
Regina Scully’s paintings are highly gestural and densely packed with pictorial incident that can be read as both abstraction and as a form of representation of the Gulf Coast environment in which she lives. Her work strives to show the phenomena of contemporary cities and spaces from her own perspective of being situated inside them. Today’s world is an amalgamation of objects, spaces, and events that collide and detach, connect and disconnect. By distorting perspective, slicing up space, and building up forms by cutting and splicing them together, Scully hybridizes disparate elements while also discovering new imaginary spaces that reference an archetypal entrance into the subconscious.
