You Got Me Burning Up: Recent Work by Regin Igloria

Through the lens of dry absurdity, Chicago-based artist, Regin Igloria, explores diverse topics such as survival, competition, and the Western iconography of the outdoorsman. Igloria discusses his latest explorations in navigating the human condition with digital and painted works, and its relationship to the book form to create a literal figure-ground relationship for the viewer.

Regin Igloria was Born 1974 in Manila, Philippines and currently lives and works in and around Chicago. He is a multidisciplinary artist and educator. His drawings, artists’ books, sculptures, and performances portray the human condition as it relates to the natural environment and inhabited spaces. He founded North Branch Projects, an organization that builds connections through book arts. He works with various communities to create crossover between disparate populations and cultures, aiming to broaden the roles of both artists and non-artists. Igloria has taught at places such as Marwen, RISD, The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Snow City Arts, and Carthage College. He received a 3Arts Individual Artist Award as well as local, national, and international grants, support through artist residencies, and has exhibited internationally. He received his MFA from Rhode Island School of Design.
