Dystopian mindscapes of Adrian Regnier's work bring Chapman brothers' sensitivities to a new level of ever so nightmarish abstraction. Adrian's virtuosity with the medium and conceptual clarity make his work a powerful statement devoid of any ambiguity. His is not a retrospective of past transgressions of human society, but a sober and beautiful reality check on the existence of the human species.
