Regina Scully’s paintings explore contemporary cities and spaces in our current world as an amalgamation of objects, spaces, and events that collide and detach, connect and disconnect. By distorting perspective, slicing up space, and building forms by cutting them and bringing them back together, the artist tries to hybridize disparate elements while also discovering new imaginary spaces that reference an archetypal entrance into the subconscious.
