Thanks to a radical originality setting her apart on the Brazilian contemporary art scene, one of her great strengths is that she manages to capture and entrance both the general public and the art experts. An enthusiast of the work of painters such as Mondrian and Matisse, Beatriz Milhazes makes colour the absolute protagonist of her work, the element that in the composition comes before even form and which determines both balance and the conclusive phase.
Colour is eroticism, beauty, joy and primitivism and bears testimony to the artist’s desire to embrace in her painting the socio-cultural customs and the traditions of her country. She is fascinated by the multiple cultural hybridisations characterising the Brazilian nation: her works contain baroque references to lace, jewellery and embroidered fabrics and an anthropological awareness develops that is somewhere between Brazilian mandalas and samba.
