VICTORIA - Excitement is mounting for the upcoming twenty-year retrospective of Duncan Regehr's figurative oil paintings at Victoria's Winchester Galleries, July 7 to 28.

Everyone is invited when "Out of the Dragon's Eye" opens with a public reception on Saturday, July 7 from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m.

Regehr, who was born in a Year of the Dragon, has always felt its significance. He was honoured in 1988 when an old Chinese craftsman created a chop-insignia for him that combined the artist's initials with the shape of an ancient dragon. That image has been a trademark signature on the artist's work ever since.

In this Year of the Dragon 2012, Winchester Galleries has curated a collection of carefully selected works from the artist's most important series: Poetic Imagery, Witness, Occasus, Strangers, In the Company of Children, Corvus Rex, Chrysalid, Magic, Cypher, Revenant, Doppelganger and Omniscience. This exhibition runs concurrently with a multi-media career retrospective of Regehr at the University of Victoria's Legacy Art Gallery (June 13 to August 18).

By delving into the psyche and the collective subconscious, Regehr produces images that are intensely personal, but which also resonate with universality. They invite reciprocal identification by the viewer. His figurative oils hold their form, line, colour and subject matter with equal importance. One senses the hand of an artist who imbues his art with emotional intensity, exposing compelling images that are both idiosyncratic and profoundly human in nature.

Over the past four decades, Regehr has emerged as one of Canada's foremost figurative artists. His paintings, sculpture and written works can be found in important collections worldwide. He is a member of the Royal Canadian Academy and a recipient of the American Vision Award of Distinction in the Arts and an honourary Doctorate of Fine Arts from the University of Victoria. He has published extensively and has been the subject of numerous articles and reviews.
