Beatriz Milhazes’ paintings show how much she demands of herself and reflects her relentless effort and search for so many worlds of perfectionism. Absorbed in the world of her studio in Rio de Janeiro, where she captures the wonderful energy of quiet and harmony emanating from the neighbouring Botanical Gardens, she works incessantly on her shapes, her colours, her many surfaces, revealing Brazil’s history, the power and multiplicity of its culture; the wonderful essence of the citizens of Rio de Janeiro-so full of sensuality, music, light, and love of life.
