ARTmonday: Beatriz Milhazes

A few years ago I discovered Rio de Janeiro artist Beatriz Milhazes. Her work was hanging in a living room featured in a glossy mag (perhaps Elle Decor). I perused her work online but it simply wasn’t in the budget. Seems she’s done a lot since then. In addition to her paintings, which are similar in style, but more vivid and hard-edged, there’s an amazing mobile installation and some public works. Most of these are through the James Cohan Gallery in NYC; some are earlier works from the Stephen Friedman Gallery, also in NYC. Feast your eyes. . .
