Carpintaria – Fortes D’Aloia & Gabriel | May 20, 2017 – July 15, 2017

Durham Press would like to congratulate Beatriz Milhazes on her solo exhibition at Fortes D’Aloia & Gabriel – Carpintaria, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Marola, Mariola, and Marilola is the show title, as well as the names of the three sculptures included in the exhibition. The works share a relationship to her arabesque, geometric, and floral motifs in her paintings, while creating a new dialogue in three dimension. “This physical possibility represents an investigative area that painting does not offer,” Milhazes explains.

The sculptures, ranging in a three different sizes, are dense arrangements made of various mixed-media components such as: polyester and paper flowers; copper, aluminum, and brass bead curtains and mirror-polished rods; various colored plexiglass motifs and cylinders; stainless steel; hand-cut paper strands; copper plates; woodbloock; screenprint; and hand-painted enamel on aluminum.

The exhibition runs until July 15th, 2017. For more information on the exhibition, please contact Fortes D’Aloia & Gabriel.
