"Most my works are about loneliness. When i was in holidays, i went to Alentejo often. I was really in peace with my mind. Alone i could think about my life. Expectations. The nature inpire us to move into other directions. The right ones. It is such a nice but scary dichotomy between city and countryside. Only thing in common is the loneliness, we are feeling lonely wherever we are. Individualism is creating individual ways of life that in extreme will lead us to collective suicide. But i create works to project beauty. Beauty of nature. A refugee for problems. I really like Maluda and Noronha da Costa, portuguese artists, female and male, that never had true recognition." Francisco Lacerda.

Welcome to the new Age: the Age of Diamonds. A new age confirms that we are heading to a world where people will
start investing in diamonds as safe investment and not in gold. This is not because gold will disappear, but because diamonds will start being used for many different proposes. With the emerging middle class around the world, especially from China, India, South America and Africa, there is no doubt that people will start to look to and acquire this raw and polished material." Francisco Lacerda

This painting was made based on the work the Book of Genesis by the English painter Joseph Mallord William Turner (c.1775–1851). 
Inability to control nature, which is beautiful to the eye yet has the power to destroy and recreate life. Homogeneity and Darkness.
