A Candeia, Eduardo Fonseca, Porcelain Plate by Vista Alegre


“One of the scenes most depicted during the last 2000 years of Western civilization, the birth of Jesus, has taken countless forms. The sense of birth or rebirth, which engages us throughout end-of-year celebrations, makes us always hopeful for future times, or at least until next Christmas or New Year.

What I want to represent in this work is not only the birth of Jesus as such, but that sense of hope that enlightens us when we have no light (color). It is this feeling that makes us want to be reborn every year and gives us the strength to believe that we can achieve our desires and goals. A Candeia is hope in dark times or times of doubt”. (Eduardo Fonseca)
