Regina Bogat: Earthly Divination

Image coming soon.

Tim Keane considers Threaded Piece 3, c.1973 by Regina Bogat, on view in the exhibition Regina Bogat: Works 1967-1977 at Zürcher Gallery, New York, on view through July 25, 2014.

Keane writes: "In her delicate union of geometric formality and biomorphic energy, Bogat proves that bodily references and universal symbolism can coexist with purity of form. Alongside her female peers in the New York scene like Agnes Martin and her friend, Eva Hesse, she has infused her hard-edged abstraction with intimations of natural formations and human physiology while preserving that style’s contemplative strength and – let’s face it – its mesmerizing opacity as well… More than the other two works in this remarkable series, 'Threaded Piece 3,' challenges the distinctions between abstract and representational art while blurring the lines between painting and sculpture. Intentionally or not, this work further confronts unwritten boundaries separating graphic design and traditional craftwork from fine art and avant-garde techniques."
