Regina Scully

Regina Scully’s paintings explore the imaginary heroic landscape and the many microcosmic worlds it encompasses. The artist uses rhythmic brushwork and both subtle and powerful color to abstract and filter images in her mind she recalls from pictures, experiences, memories, and meditative journeys. Equally inspiring to her work are the landscapes where she has lived and traveled, and the faraway islands and magical forests she researches online in photographs. The labyrinthine spaces in her paintings become vistas and stages for poetic vignettes, intriguing characters, suggestions of objects, and an exploration of paint itself.

New Orleans-based artist, Scully has exhibited nationally and internationally and has had solo exhibitions in New York, New Orleans and a solo exhibition at the New Orleans Museum of Art. She received her BFA in Painting from Rhode Island School of Design and her MFA in Painting from University of New Orleans. One of her paintings was acquired in 2021, for the lobby at World Trade Center, Tower 7 in New York where it is permanently installed. She is also a recipient of the Louis Comfort Tiffany Grant. Among other collections, two of Scully’s paintings are in the Microsoft Art Collection and two works are in the permanent collection at the New Orleans Museum of Art.
