Zachary Keeting and Christopher Joy talk with painter Regina Bogat at her exhibition Regina Bogat: The New York Years, 1960-1970 at Zürcher Studio, New York, on view through November 2, 2013.
Bogat reamrks that in her works "I try to do things I've never seen before... just let your unconsious roam. I love the freedom of my unconscious..." Commenting on working productively in isolation for many years, Bogat notes: "I was very isolated, nobody ever came to see my work... I knew everybody but nobody ever showed any interest in me... I think it's very good... to grow up being ignored. It gives you the freedom to find out who you are and push into the future instead of trying to 'make it.""
