Abstract Sunset after Schiele

Piece description from the artist

A smaller ink drawing/painting using pigmented inks – highly permanent pigmented ink markers and felt tip pens. On "Artboard' a thin rigid archival material that looks like paper, but is more durable. The pigmented ink markers blend and layer extremely well on the artboard. I've been inspired to use inks and drawing media to re-interpret some of my favorite Early 20th Century paintings. Ink is a very different medium, and my own aesthetic is not identical to the well-known painters used as inspiration. The translation from their aesthetic to mine and from paint to ink involves adding detail, abstracting, and reworking ideas. It's been informative so far. This drawing was inspired by Egon Schiele's complex and moody landscapes – you can find them around Vienna in the museums (Upper Belvedere for example)

About Regina Valluzzi

Waltham, MA

Dr. Regina Valluzzi has an extensive scientific background in nanotechnology and biophysics. She has been a scientist in the chemical industry, a green chemistry researcher, a research professor at the engineering school at Tufts, a start-up founder engaged in technology commercialization, and a start-up and commercialization consultant.

Even during periods of intense activity as a scientist, Dr. Valluzzi has always held a strong interest in the visual arts and in visual information. While she majored in Materials Science at MIT, she also obtained a second degree in music and a minor in visual studies. Visual arts have managed to permeate her technical work; during her Ph.D in Polymer Science and Engineering at UMass Amherst, she completed a thesis that required advanced electron microscopy, image analysis, and theoretical data modeling. These experiences provided the visual insight and information that now influences much of her artwork.

Dr. Valluzzi’s work has been included in private collections across the US, UK, Germany, Canada, Japan, Netherlands, Switzerland, Bulgaria, Dubai and Malta, and in the corporate collection of "Seyfarth Shaw" Boston law offices around Boston. She has a selection of pieces on loan to the MIT Materials Science and Engineering Department as indoor public art. Her accomplishments include having published thirty articles in peer-reviewed scientific journals, having made several scientific patents, having been a subject matter expert for an encyclopedia chapter, and having been invited to speak at science talks across the US, Europe, and Japan.

Her newsletter is a good source of ongoing information: http://eepurl.com/daiLQ
