Esta importante obra da década em que a artista se consagra internacionalmente está representada no catálogo Raisonné e integrou exposições como a primeira retrospectiva de Vieira da Silva na Kestner-Gesellschaft et Deutschland (Hannover, 1958), “Vieira da Silva – Arpad Szenes nas Colecções Portuguesas” apresentada na Casa de Serralves (Porto, 1989) e Europália 91, no Musée Royaux des Beaux-Arts (Bruxelas, 1991).
“The depiction of an unknown object from a specific angle means that the subject always has a hidden side. Until quite recently there was no one on earth who had seen the other side of the moon. That fact itself was a great wonder to me as a child; for all we knew anything might have been there. This was an invisible hemisphere which could accept all my fanciful projections. It was such a powerful focus that my concept of imagination still has links with the “dark” side of the moon. In a way it is unfortunate that we ever had the possibility to make a flat picture of the moon. How would we have represented it if we never had use of the two dimensional?”
Joel Fisher, in Bomb Magazine #6, 1983
“Para mim, os painéis negros laterais – as palas – têm um efeito semelhante ao de usar óculos com uma lente de outra cor tapada, mas de forma mental: enfatizam simultaneamente a profundidade ilusória e a qualidade de superfície que a pintura tem.”
in Michael Biberstein: X, uma retrospectiva, 2019
