A compendious celebration of the exuberant, multilayered paintings and prints of Beatriz Milhazes

This is the most comprehensive book to date on Beatriz Milhazes, featuring many previously unpublished paintings and prints. Milhazes, a pivotal figure in contemporary art and the history of abstraction, works with a complex repertoire of images associated with different motifs, origins and sources. She works mainly in painting, printmaking and collage, but also in drawing, sculpture, artist’s books and textiles, among other mediums. Oscillating between abstraction and figuration, geometry and free form, her compositions are intricate, dense, multicolored and literally full of layers—of colors, paints, papers and meanings. Milhazes’ sources are diverse and varied: from modernism to the Baroque, from folk art or "arte popular" to pop culture, from fashion to jewelry, from architecture to abstraction, from the history of art to nature. Her work encompasses multiple references, including the artists Hilma af Klint, Sonia Delaunay, Bridget Riley, Henri Matisse, Tarsila do Amaral and Piet Mondrian.
Beatriz Milhazes: Avenida Paulista includes more than 170 works made since 1989, a turning point in Milhazes’ career. It was in that year that she developed the technique she calls “monotransfer,” in which she paints on a sheet of transparent plastic and then decals or transfers the painted and dry element to the canvas. The book provides a unique opportunity to discover her diverse, complex, multifaceted and singular work.
Beatriz Milhazes was born in Rio de Janeiro in 1960. Her works can be found in the collections of the Guggenheim, MASP, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, MoMA, Tate and the Centre Pompidou, among others. Milhazes lives and works in Rio de Janeiro.

Happy New Year from Artbook | D.A.P.!

Happy New Year from Artbook | D.A.P.!

This year, we can think on no better artist than Beatriz Milhazes to ring us into the new year. We love the optimism, the energy, the color (of course!) and the full-on embrace of mysterious, organic life. "Milhazes makes explicit the solidarity that exists between ornament and ecology," Yuko Hasegawa writes in Avenida Paulista, the gorgeous new release from DelMonico Books and MASP. "The mechanics of how the eye moves causes our dancing gaze to spin out and turn toward that which surrounds us, thereby coming into a tactile encounter with our microenvironment and our ambient surroundings. Geometry, order, the rhythm of life, systems of production, how these systems are visualized—these ecological circuits and relationships are embedded in the processes by which sensibility becomes structured. This is why the artist’s work seems to cleave so closely to our lives and exist alongside it. The intelligence that her work thereby achieves belongs to—or perhaps depends on—a higher order that transcends modernism and the realm of the human."
