2010-2011 Artist In Residence
Lisa Caballero | Oil Paintings
Lisa Caballero grew up in San Diego and took her first drawing class as a senior at Yale College. She continued her studies at the Art Student’s League of New York and the National Academy of Design School.
The paintings exhibited throughout the University Club show the variety of Ms. Caballero’s subject matter: from roses and traditional still lifes to people, seascapes, plastic bags and the decaying urban landscape. She paints her closely observed works from life, and says that realism involves “attending to a subject.” Her paintings demonstrate a contemporary sensibility, yet remain firmly rooted in the European painting tradition.
Ms. Caballero has exhibited in New York City and Portland, and was featured on the OPB program Oregon Art Beat. She is represented by The Sovereign Gallery and the Rental Sales Gallery of the Portland Art Museum.
She enjoys playing the violin and gardening.
