Throughout Charlotte Lisboa’s sensual visions of the female form one discovers a luscious softness and warmth infused with the spirit of her subjects. As they luxuriate in peaceful repose, Charlotte’s women seem lost in contemplation and serenity. In her paintings, the artist takes life out of its context and into ethereal scenes of atmospheric wonder. These figural works and portraits seem to breathe with vitality, bringing together realism with touches of impressionism and abstraction. Working in oil paints on panel, canvas, or linen, and drawing in graphite on paper, Charlotte captures an evolution of ideas across time. Within each mark, one finds care and craftsmanship built upon years of finely honed skills and the sensitivity of a compassionate gaze.
Encouraged to express herself freely from an early age, Charlotte Lisboa found her creative spirit fueled during the time she spent in Paris and since then she has followed her career as an artist with passion and dedication. Born in Brazil, she studied in the United States and received degrees from the University of Miami before focusing on her artistic career.
