Influenced by the giallo (crime) films of Italian directors, such as Dario Argento and Mario Bava, Beauregard presents a series of disparate sculptures rooted in the undercurrent of the horror imbedded in these cinematic works. Taken as a whole, this exhibit is meant to evoke ideas from Italian futurism, giallo and cult cinema, which present similar notions of dream narratives. At their core the fragmented images of violence and style reflect a desire to explore a history marked by fascism and war.

Beauregard has exhibited in 707 Penn Gallery, Space Gallery, The Mattress Factory and The Art Chicago, Il. He holds an MFA from Carnegie Mellon University, and a BFA in Sculpture from Virginia Commonwealth University.
