Meet Hello Galena Artist: Hendrica Regez

More Artists

Meet Hendrica Regez, Hello Galena's featured artist.

An environmentalist, Regez gathers inspiration from nature. "I draw from it and express a given mood," she said.

Her medium is acrylics used in a technique that combines the spontaneity of watercolors with the texture of impasto. She prefers to use strong colors in a limited palette and many glazes. Her subjects are taken from nature and more or less abstracted, which gives them a "less is more", Zen like quality. Her style is uniquely her own, lying somewhere between abstract symbolism and hyper-surrealism. She has invented her own iconographic language to communicate concepts and emotions.

Her work is owned and displayed by private collectors and organizations nationwide and throughout Europe.

Regez, who grew up in Germany, has always been interested in creating beautiful things. Her father painted for a hobby, and she utilized the steady supply of drawing and painting materials that were on hand. Although she trained and worked as an electrical engineer, she maintained her interest in painting. Now she works full-time as an artist.

Regez's artwork may be seen in Galena at the Railway Cafe and the American Eagle Gallery. Plus, appointments may be made to see her work at her Westside Studio. To make an appointment, contact her at (815) 776-0557 or via e-mail. Of course, her art is on sale at Hello Galena at 121 N. Commerce St., in Galena.
