Undulating Wood

Piece description from the artist

Undulating Woods is a complex and textured acrylic painting, abstracting patterns from a forest. Different techniques were used to pattern the canvas. these were applied as separate layers. The underlying background layer was created using loose washes of fluid acrylic. The colors were allowed to drip and bleed into one another. Splashing and dripping techniques were used to pattern the wash and to create defined areas of color and color gradation. This was followed by a layer of fluid acrylic and ink pouring techniques, creating defined streams of color and loose patterning on top of the soft washes. When these foundation layers had dried, patterns of shaded lines and curves were painted onto the canvas. Finally a layer of detail was added using striped elastic gel pours and striped acrylic extrusion. Please see the details to get a complete picture of the painting.

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
