Her large-size acryl paintings invite the beholder to a dialogue. Color fields, gently layered or powerfully erupting, stir up emotions, bring back memories and capture the imagination. Inspired by the staged colors of the sunlight between the trees, the colors of an evening sky, reflections in still or troubled waters, they entice the observer to discover new aspects and nuances in those paintings.
By emotionally interpreting the outer realities, her paintings demonstrate another reality, a personal reality, which, very gently, addresses the beholder and awakens her or his curiosity.
Through her figurative paintings, the artist seeks to establish an individual connection with the beholder. Whether portraits or cityscapes, they conjure up a feeling of intimacy and the beholder can, in that moment, empathize with the mood of those paintings.
Regula is inspired by everyday life, by nature, by people - her focus is however not on the photographic rendition of her observations but rather on transporting emotions.
Regula is an International Member of the Portrait Society of America.
