Lost in Triangulation
“While many were running in circles, I brushed with triangles”
Today, after years of capturing human subjects with his camera, Philippe explores a new medium: collage on canvas. He builds on previous work, using previous portraits that he cuts, deconstructs, and reassembles to create distinctive paintings. Whereas a younger Philippe may have been focused on painting an individual subject, a new layer is added: the artist interrogates his own process of representation.
A worldwide shakedown, like in 2008, was needed to push the artists' creative inspiration beyond the frontier of previous exploration. During months of lock down, Philippe Regard is locked down in his studio. He turns around in circles, or rather, in triangles.

"I used to be a photographer for many years, but about 2018 I had to start a job as a barista/bartender in a lovely corner bistro in Brooklyn, NY. Covid 19 hit us and the bistro went down forever... and I got lost in Triangulation so I started to paint."
