Towards the Sun

Regina Gimenez

Regina Gimenez’s work belongs to the field of abstraction; this initially seems to be an irrefutable fact since it is in the exploration of geometry and color that her aesthetic concerns lie.

[…] She distils an interest in what she calls “popular knowledge”, teaching models based not so much on training canons but on fictitious registers and domestic resources. In this light, disciplines such as geography and science are challenged by the artist, as she systematizes their formal elements and emphasizes their symbolic condition.

[…] In her conscientious search, visible in the serial nature of all her work, we catch a glimpse of a will to present knowledge under a logical and methodical organization.

— Javier Hontoria

Regina Gimenez

Barcelona, 1966

Regina Gimenez lives and works in Barcelona. Since the 1990s, she has established herself as one of the most active Catalan artists on the art scene both locally and internationally.

Through the appropriation of elements extracted from her original contexts, such as old silent maps or geography and cosmology books, and their reorganization into new compositions, Regina Gimenez develops through her works an investigation around the aesthetic and formal aspect of graphic representations. It is a versatile body of work composed of objects of a different nature, from paintings on canvas and collages on paper to textile works, passing through other materials and techniques such as methacrylate or photography. That is why, in addition to her pictorial production, it is also worth highlighting the artist’s interest in the Edition of artist’s books and graphic works, as well as her teaching task at the university.
