“My father was a Colonel and I made a living working for the Army. Although I didn’t want the military culture to seep into my mind and my art, it did. I wanted my current work to depict the sense of frustration and entrapment I felt, but equally, to depict my overriding feelings of self-respect because I performed the tasks required to defend our nation.

When the pandemic started, I continued the military theme, but this time the soldiers wear gas masks. I became obsessed with researching old military gas masks. Slathering plaster onto paper and then sanding, gouging, massaging and scraping are actions that cause pain and release pain at the same time. The process echoes the message.” – Betsey Regan
