Summary
  • At 80, Beatriz González is not only an internationally celebrated Colombian artist, but also a representative of the "radical women" generation from Latin America. Her 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 middleclass notions of taste, class, gender, and ethnicity. This book includes essays that explore González'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 González's oeuvre, which comments on domestic environments and vernacular traditions of her country with self-conscious irony. -, Provided by publisher
