Regina Giménez

Posted by Fabio 16 February 2018

Regina Giménez explores an iconography based on the graphic design and marketing techniques of a post-industrial world. The paintings of Regina Giménez evoke the graphic and industrial design of Germany and Russia from the years between the wars, using elements of the International Style to create abstract compositions that are almost like landscapes. With backgrounds covered in rich textures and gestural brushwork, the principal elements are collages applied to the painterly and emotive canvas, giving the compositions their characteristic relief. They are urban scenes, almost utopian, that represent a more innocent world, where the power of consumerism and industrialization is seen with benevolent eyes.
