Beatriz Gonzalez: A Retrospective
A handsome book all about the internationally celebrated Colombian artist Beatriz Gonzalez
Beatriz Gonzalez's work spans over six decades and her groundbreaking art has distinct figuration, involving the flattening of forms and use of strong and eccentric color palettes evocative of commercial advertising. Her work often has imagery associated with Western art history as well as mass media common to Colombia in order to shed light on the middle- class notions of taste, class, gender, and ethnicity.
This book includes essays that explore Gonzalez's early work, her late and current work, and her use of photography and archival images. It contextualizes her practice within Colombian history and major events that influenced her work. Filled with illustrations, this book shows the breadth of Beatriz Gonzalez's oeuvre, which comments on domestic environments and vernacular traditions of her country with self-conscious irony.
