I really love Beatriz Milhazes work, pure and simple. It is so rich and powerful and exuberant. Her masterful use of color and layered shapes create a maximalist celebration of pattern and geometry. I think her paintings are modern and fresh and seductive all at the same time.
But, I have had trouble finding many examples of her work in the past. And I've looked. There is no book about her art that I am aware of and I have searched the web for catalogs from her shows to no avail. But this months Elle Decor thankfully has a wonderful article featuring the artist and her work, so it may be easier to find more examples of her paintings in the near future. I am hopeful of that because this woman's art makes my heart sing!
