Artist Statement
Dana O’Regan is a contemporary artist based in Fredericton. His current artworks take on an expansive exploration of paint as a sculptural form. Drawing on the rich history of twentieth century ‘action painting’ and other process-driven practices, O’Regan uses paint to build complex, layered objects over extended periods of time.

With recent solo exhibitions at the Sunbury Shores Art Gallery, the Andrew and Laura McCain Gallery, the Grand Manan Art Gallery, the Saint John Arts Centre, and the Annex Gallery, O’Regan will be exhibiting his latest artworks as part of a group exhibition at the Beaverbrook Art Gallery this summer. O’Regan is represented by Gallery 78.
