Beatriz Milhazes (1960)
O Limite, signed, dated and inscribed 'B. Milhazes "Ulê" 1997' (on the reverse), acrylic on canvas, unframed, 80x59 cm, Beatriz Milhazes is well known for her vibrantly colourful, kaleidoscopic collages, prints, paintings, and installations which draw on both Latin American and European traditions. Milhazes’ rigorously structured compositions are punctuated by a recurring set of arabesque motifs inspired by Brazilian culture, ceramics, lacework, carnival decoration, music, and Colonial baroque architecture. As Milhazes explains, “I am seeking geometrical structures, but with freedom of form and imagery taken from different worlds. ” The artist has also cited opera, classical and Brazilian popular music as having informed the upbeat energy of her stripes, lines, circular forms, and rays. The careful balance of harmony and dissonance in her work, combined with her Technicolor palette, are evident of the strong influence by such 20th century masters as Tarsila do Amaral, Oswald de Andrade, Matisse, Kandinsky and Delaunay. Milhazes has stated “I need to have all these elements and put them together. They are in some sort of a conflict that will never really end up anywhere. There are not peaceful surfaces. There should be some struggle on the surface and then create some activities for your eyes” (Interview with Beatriz Milhazes, RES Art World/ World Art, No. 2 May 2008), Provenance: Acquired from Galerie Barbara Farber, Amsterdam, thence by decent.
