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 and 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.
James Cohan Gallery will also host an exhibition of the works that opens April 1st in New York.
