Regina Allen,



     I document our rapidly changing natural world and global climate. My paintings, inspired by aerial photos, focus on terrestrial patterns of conflict between people and their environment. The work documents and interprets the results of urban sprawl, flood control, mining, and ocean acidification, among other environmental issues.

     My art acts as a repository for my fears about our changing climate and landscape. Although the subjects are serious, I find solace in the enduring beauty of the Earth and in the tenacity of nature. The sensuousness of paint and the expressiveness of color and mark offer a little wisp of hope, like a prayer or a wish.
