Impossible not to love: 'Beatriz Milhazes: Collages'

If ever you're feeling down, pick up a copy of Beatriz Milhazes: Collages, Editora Cobogó's effervescent new collection of the Brazilian artist's collages made from candy wrappers gathered during a residency in Brittany, among other materials. In a published interview with Richard Armstrong, Milhazes comments, "The collages have a kind of a dialogue with a diary, but an imaginary one. The papers collected come from a variety of interest: sometimes an aesthetic attraction, some other part of a routine, like chocolate wrappers or cut-outs leftover from existing prints. Then the construction of the collage composition creates a dialogue that only exists in the collage. Painting is something else. It creates a process memory. For many years, I entered the studio every day with the motivation of painting a white painting, a painting based on white color. I haven't done it yet, but that memory of some 'white feeling' was the reference to develop a strong and contrasting palette of colors." Featured image is "Ouro Branco," or "White Gold," (2006).
