Regina Saura’s medium of expression is found between the fine line that separates the real from the unreal, between expressionism and figurative painting, using acrylic paint, collages and numerous graphic resources embodied in objects, often out of context, large important as a center of attention, chairs, cups, tables, flowers, vases, fruits, fruit trees… with a close-up photographic framing treatment, flat representations, others with volume –as in the case of landscapes– that conceptually takes us to his photographic training. They are part of a personal iconography, symbols of her vital experiences.
Color is fundamental in her work: emphatic, crucial, abstract or concrete is something basic, the starting point of all her paintings. It is also a way of expressing a state of mind, a direct link as a means of communication. And Regina does it with bright, direct and clean colors.
The use of collage, which, like one more brushstroke, is integrated into the painting for one reason or another, always has a defined intention. All this clearly reflects the influence of graphic design through the inclusion of texts, phrases, words collected from newspapers, other times using cut shapes, numbers that want to make us forget that time exists, objects and shapes that are used to express sensations, feelings or emotions. The support of the text signifies for the painter the importance of the word, which she uses to emphasize, underline, accentuate: to ultimately communicate.
Her work initially leaned towards urban themes and figures, but after moving to the countryside her work evolved towards landscapes as a main focus. Her work flows as well as she does: “Whenever I paint something, the situation I am living in at that moment unconsciously comes out. When I was pregnant I focused on food and tables, those works were then exhibited as a collection in Japan. I am also surrounded by designs, models and all kinds of chairs that my husband Pete Sans creates. I felt inspired and started painting objects and furniture. Everyday life at home, in rural life, has been turned into still life paintings”.
