Beatriz Milhazes - Rio Azul
Sale Special Price $52.20 $58.00
This exhibition foregrounded Milhazes' explorations in a variety of media including painting, installation, sculpture, and collage and her first ever tapestry. In a new series of paintings, which make reference to the flattened sense of space in Matisse's paper cut-outs and the colourful compositions of modernist painter and designer Sonia Delaunay, Milhazes continues to employ a bright, riotous colour palette with 'Neo-Concretist' and geometric shapes. Circular forms, abstract and floral patterning and solid expanses of single colours are set against parallel or undulating lines; images that echo both the tropical profusion of Brazil's native flora and the delicate transparency and grid-like features of its modernist architecture.
