Edgar Varela Fine Arts is pleased to present an exhibition of new works by Bianca Regl.
This is the artist's first solo exhibition in Los Angeles. The exhibit is co-curated by Gemma Sonego, presented by Gilmore Associates and hosted by Phantom Galleries LA.
Bianca Regl's works are multifaceted. Not just a variety of themes, but also of materials defines the painter's figurative style: painting behind glass, miniatures on balsa wood and large canvases live next to each other harmoniously. In her work, drawing often takes the role of a study, but looking at them exclusively in terms of preparatory sketches would deny the force of these singular images. Graphical representation is replaced, in her larger works, by a vehemently gestural way of applying her brush-strokes.
On image surfaces that sometimes are hardly larger than a matchbox, Bianca Regl tells a kind of tales that are rooted in everyday situations and discuss her home country, Austria, in a partly ironical way. Patriotic allegories from touristic folders about the Alpine regions, by her subtle brush, are transferred onto the balsa panel. Grazing cows in front of mountain scenery may turn up as well as children playing at the well of a hut in the Alps. A Heidi idyll is thus created.
