Beatrix Malhazes at the Perez Art Museum

Beatrix Malhazes’ major retrospective at the Perez Art Museum in Miami was a joy.  I saw this following an afternoon in Wynwood, Miami’s vibrant art district.

The pieces are very large, many over 200 cm.  I feel under the spell of her work.  And its gorgeous!

Here method of painting is fascinating, a bit like printmaking.  She paints some of the shapes on plastic and then transfers them to the canvas. The resulting surface is weathered and imperfect.
