Profile

Isabel Sophia Villarreal, Painter

My name is Isabel Villarreal and I am an undergraduate at Portland State
During an average day, all I see is color. The red of lipstick, blues and purples, orange and browns, magenta. I see them in me and in all of us. We are every color. My art is about defying a space with the movements and emotions I want to convey. When we hold hands, laugh, sit in silence, or give comfort: We express every color. We feel and breathe the essence of it. My paintings are about applying the beauties of the world into an environment on a canvas that could break away from its confinement without hesitation. My paintings are about escape, emotionally and through the mind.
