Excerpt from the exhibit write up
Written by Camille Banzon
... the inner structure of the human body is indirectly connected to the appearance of a tree. How the veins bring blood to our viscera, Regalario imagines the way the roots swim into the depths of the earth—responsible for the tree’s life and the inspiration it gives to people. Even if a tree is inanimate, it lives. It takes in air just like the rest of us, while standing still and taking all the blows from nature and mankind. It does not forget to breathe.
Regalario’s works are imaginative, surreal, and striking, using dark strokes, geometric contours, and optical illusions against figures that stitch the background of her past to the silhouette of her present. Instead of burying her dim days, she plants the seeds of her memories onto paper and ink, and cultivates them into compelling pieces of art. The illustrations are then transferred onto wood blocks and boards using acrylic, and mounted on panels layered with wood stain.
