Aneta Regel

“Trees, rocks, fields, river-beds – these and other aspects of landscape are the images through which [Regel] seeks to convey her vision. A romantic to the core, she wants not only to capture the forms, energies and rhythms of these natural phenomena but to suggest the emotional response they evoke in her… Her work is informed by something of the same sense of awe in the face of nature, a similar openness to its transcendental dimension.” (John Christian)
