Site visitors are invited check out a part of the exhibition at Kravets Wehby Gallery, 521 W 21st Road, and then a next serving to two blocks away at A Hug from the Art World’s new spot 515 West 19th Avenue.
Regner’s figures are stitched collectively from myths, private narrative, and historic/pop society. In this human body of perform, his attention shifts to mythological gods, posing them as fallible beings. Frankensteinian in nature, just about every a single is pushed to the restrictions of absurdity to negate their sinister effect. The extremely-pristine surfaces help in smoothing out any traces of the grotesqueness, a kindness prolonged by Regner’s mastery of the airbrush. Cohesive and lyrical, Regner pulls back again the curtain to peer at what is genuinely driving the facade of the gods. What he finds are children’s costume capes colliding with Air Max 95s in deadly serious and brutally humorous examinations of mortality. Envy, hope, resentment, triumph–humanity are unable to be evaded even by the gods.
