One of the most revered members of the Miami Generation, a group of Cuban-born artists who emigrated to the United States, Maria Brito is a painter, sculptor, and installation artist best known for her elaborately constructed room-like works that embody narratives of loss and displacement. Brito also draws on personal iconography to create challenging works that are at once deeply autobiographical and reflect a profound fluency with the history of Western art.In this new volume in the landmark A Ver series and the first major book on Brito s career, Juan A. Martinez examines the unique interplay of the personal and the universal in this Miami-based artist s diverse mixed-media works."
