"One thing that I work with is op art. I want to have optical movements, disturbing things; such visions that your eyes would be disturbed when you see them. You don't have the real center of the composition, and your eyes are always moving. It's rather disturbing, even vertigo. That way, I feel like you have a communication with the entire world" (Milhazes quoted in "Interview with Beatriz Milhazes" in RES Art World/World Art, No. 2, May 2008, p. 8).
