Energy in Urban Spaces :: C24 Gallery Exhibits Regina Scully
￼C24 Gallery is pleased to announce the first solo exhibition in New York by New Orleans-based artist Regina Scully entitled "Entrance." The exhibition will present a new series of paintings which depict domestic and urban spaces that feel familiar yet are foreign and embody an unbridled energy.
Regina Scully was born in Norfolk, Virginia and received her B.F.A. in Painting from Rhode Island School of Design. After graduation, she lived in New York City for five years before moving to New Orleans in 2003. Her paintings are a part of prominent collections including the Microsoft Art Collection and the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation Collection.
"My paintings attempt to show the phenomena of contemporary cities and spaces from my own embodied perception," Scully says in her artist’s statement, "that is, from the perspective of being inside these as opposed to viewing them from afar. Our current 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 them and splicing them together, I try to hybridize disparate elements while also discovering new imaginary spaces that reference an archetypal entrance into the subconscious."
"Entrance" will be on view Oct. 29 - Dec. 21, 2013. There will be an opening reception on Tuesday, Oct. 29, from 6 - 8 p.m.
Also, C24 Gallery will present "The Lincoln Bedroom," the second solo exhibition at the gallery by New Orleans-based artist Skylar Fein. The exhibition will present an installation continuing the artist’s re-envision of historic moments and figures. Fein’s exhibition will be on view Nov. 1 - Dec. 21, 2013. There will be an opening reception on Friday, Nov. 1, from 6 - 8 p.m.
