Lisa-Anne Rediscovers Her Art Heritage.

Although she left here at age eight, Bermudian Lisa-Anne Rego never forgot her roots. Every summer until she was 13 she returned to visit relatives, and then again in 1990 before beginning her college education. Eight years would then pass until she was able to return , at which time she fell in love with the Island's beauty all over again, and the elements which make it special: the architecture, the people, the scenery.

UmUm Magazine - My Life of Art (by Lisa-Anne Rego)
I left Bermuda at age seven, but never forgot my roots and the beauty of my birthplace. I decided to return to live in Bermuda, following on from my position as Artist-in "Residence" with the Masterworks foundation in 2001.

WHEN LISA-ANNE REGO MOVED BACK TO BERMUDA, THE COUNTRY OF HER
BIRTH, SHE FOUND THAT INSTEAD OF BECOMING LOST, SHE ADAPTED EASILY
TO THE LIVELY COLOUR AND SPARKLING LIGHT OF HER NEW SUBJECT.

'Alan Wilson's Critique' , Alan Wilson , Head of Art: Hamilton College
As a fellow "brother of the brush" I was delighted to write this short introduction to Lisa Rego's art. Like myself, she trained at the Glasgow School of Art and demonstrates all the qualities of that famous institution, especially its constant emphasis on observational drawing. Despite this, her work does not have any of that existential angst associated with many of the new Glasgow figurative painters. Rather, her pictures are celebratory images that are joyous and positive. They meditate on what is beautiful with a keen awareness of the sensuous aspects of life found in her native Bermuda. But it would be wrong to believe that the life affirming essence of these pictures means they are without depth or seriousness. She is deadly serious in her quest to capture a sense of wonder before nature. So through her stance is positive it is not superficial or shrill. Her pictures are beautiful love songs of praise to her land of birth and she wishes to share this with us all. How much her religious faith informs her artistic outlook is difficult to assess but I believe it is the context in which all her creative activities find their meaning and significance.

Rego Returns to her roots

Lisa-Anne Rego's exhibition, entitled '32.18N 65.00W a new view of home' and currently showing at the Bermuda Society of Arts, pays tribute to the vitality of island life. The Bermudian artist's portraits of children and compositions of deserted streets exude warmth and beauty.The images evoke a sense of hop and promise and it is clear that Bermuda has left an indelible impression on Ms Rego, who has lived overseas for years.A product of the Glasgow School of Art, Ms Rego has changed her palate to reflect the rich and varied textures of Bermuda. In Glasgow, earth tones were used to render scenes of local life but Bermuda's blue skies and vibrant landscape lend themselves to the exuberant use of colour.
