Reginato came to his art by way of the hot rod, that energized American craft. Speed and invention, with a flash of machismo, became his hallmarks.
So did the painting of metal, with color shifts signaling and interacting with the curves of his forms.
Now at Adelson Galleries, Reginato has translated his sculptural polychromy to canvas. The results are dazzling, daring, and, most important, fun — like the feel of a custom car at full throttle.
