For 'Regina', the artist has experimented with a new process for creating sculpture using epoxy-coated foam and cast polyester to produce the blue-green work on display by Rat’s Restaurant. The entire process took nearly five years as the artist moved from concept to completion. Wright began with hundreds of drawings using floral shapes as inspiration. He modeled the form in clay first in order to further refine his vision for the final curving and enveloping shape. At night interior illumination transforms 'Regina', making the sculpture translucent, and activating the surface to show the mark of the artist’s hand.
