Artist Joseph A. Regezi has been painting and drawing since retiring from medicine in 2004. He spent 30 years in the fields of academic medicine and dentistry, during which time he developed an admiration for art as it related to his professional life. “Through extensive work in intra-oral photography, microscopic photography, and PowerPoint image development, I appreciated the degree to which composition and color supported the illustrations used in lectures and publications,” he says in a statement about his work. “This experience has had a positive translational effect on the paintings I do today.” Regezi’s solo exhibition Abstracts and Representational Geometrics is a retrospective featuring more than 30 works from his artistic career. His compositions are hard-edged abstractions, rendered primarily in acrylics and sometimes watercolors. His representational work is reductive, emphasizing the relationships of color, line, and form. The exhibition is on view through April 30.
