‘My interest encompasses juxtaposing elements of color, lines and shapes manifested in an optical play that references architecture and biomorphic forms.’ - Ernest Regua
His paintings draw inspiration from our everyday surroundings. The symbiotic relationship of manmade structures and natural occurrences fill the canvases he paints. This bringing together of different elements is evident throughout his works - the solid shapes harmonize with the spiraling lines; the circles and curvatures surround the geometry creating balance. The interplay of imagined space reveal both tension and humorous intersections.
