Regina Dudek has been creating whimsical wire and metal sculptures for the last 20 years. She draws inspiration from everyday items often deemed well past their use-by date. Where others see junk, Regina senses beauty and a rich history expressed within decay and decline.
To source the appropriate ‘treasures’ to include in her sculptures , Regina Dudek scours op-shops, garage sales, junkyards and roadside chuck-outs. She has even been known to pick up old bottle tops from the footpath! Each discovery… delicate chandelier crystals , pre-loved jewellery, buttons, rusting wire, odd cutlery, keys, battered pressed metal, old tapestries, lace, embroideries etc. is as warm as a reunion of old friends. Regina’s construction methods are unapologetically low-tech and all carried out by hand; binding and twisting wire, riveting and gluing.
Regina participates in many exhibitions and conducts regular workshops; she currently lives and works from her studio in Inverloch, South Gippsland , Victoria.
