About Regina Valluzzi

Where are all the prints?! I've noticed some issues with cropping and color fidelity in some of my images, so I'm examining, correcting and updating them. Disabling the prints until each piece is examined ensures you get the best possible version and helps me keep track.

Statement:
Art can illuminate even the most elusive and difficult to comprehend ideas. Scientific imagery can be as impenetrable as well as intriguing and beautiful. Analysis of many technical diagrams, presentations of data, and scientific images is a set of commonly accepted rules that are learned and internalized over years of study and publication. These rules and tightly codified visual metaphors help scientists communicate complex ideas mostly amongst themselves, but they could also become barriers to new ideas and insights.

Valluzzi's images are abstracted and diverged from the typical rules and symbols of scientific illustration and visualization, they provide an accessible window into the world of science for both scientists and non-scientists. Her approach is quite irreverent and mischievous.

Short Bio
Dr. Valluzzi holds BS's in Materials Science (3) and in Humanities (21.6 - Music composition) with a minor in Visual Studies from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and a PhD in Polymer Science from the University of Massachusetts Amherst. While Dr. Valluzzi is better known for her work in protein biophysics and bionanotechnology, she has always pursued her love of art. She studied painting at the Museum of Fine Arts Museum School in Boston while simultaneously pursuing her degrees at MIT. The balance of her artistic training has been self-taught, through experiments with paint and painting materials and various lessons from her father, who was also a painter.

A number of her original pieces have been sold into private collections (email for a listing), and she has shown in juried, non-juried, and ad-hoc shows for over two decades.

Reinvented Landscapes and Seascapes

So many artists, so many landscapes and creative approaches to landscapes. Is there anything left to innovate? I've been approaching landscape ideas using new ways of manipulating paint media. Grasses and stems created by pouring one liquid into another on the canvas, extrusion, diffusion, and textural ideas can all suggest and indicate landscape elements. At the same time these approaches create an image that isn't "put together" quite the same way as a typical landscape painting - even a contemporary style painting.
