Victoria Castillo

 

 

The Woodlands, Texas

Artist's Statement

“I am interested in the dual nature of paint as a medium – it can be used to create the illusion of the natural world, while at the same time being obviously paint, with abstract and beautiful qualities all its own.”

Victoria Castillo is a figurative painter whose work focuses on women in light-infused settings, usually gardens and intimate interiors.  She creates the illusion of sparkling sunlight while at the same time shows the unmistakable qualities of paint and the artist’s hand.

Victoria studied art at Washington & Lee University and at the University of Maryland, graduating with honors.  After college, Victoria lived and worked in both Europe and the US.

Victoria’s paintings receive top awards at national exhibitions, including Best in Show at The National Society of Artists’ 30th Annual Exhibition, and First Place two years running at the Louisiana Art & Artists’ Guild’s River Road Show. She won a Bronze Medal from Oil Painters of America and a memorial award from the Allied Artists of America. Her paintings appear regularly at the National Arts Club and the Salmagundi Club in NYC, and well as in the magazines Southwest Art and American Art Collector. She is represented by Abend Gallery Fine Art in Denver, CO.
