In September of 2009, Beatriz Milhazes returned to Durham Press to take on another enormous project, a series of seven prints that came to be called the Gold Rose Series. During her four-week stay she worked with a team of five to realize the beautiful proofs seen in the pictures below. She was also filmed for a documentary that is being made about her by Goritzia Filmes.
The Gold Rose Series is comprised of two singles, a diptych and a triptych all measuring 31 and a half inches in height – but of various lengths. The series uses warm color schemes, botanical forms as bold graphics and patterning, and intricate detailing typical to Milhazes’ work.
The series is now in production and will be released this spring. We expect Beatriz back to sign in April, when we plan to celebrate the completion of the edition with a reception of these impressive new works. More information on this soon. James Cohan Gallery will also host an exhibition of the works that opens April 1st in New York.
