Title: Alabaster Vase in the Colors of Faith
Description of the work: In ‘Sacra Inspiração: Vaso de Alabastro nas Cores da Fé’ (Sacred Inspiration: Alabaster Vase in the Colors of Faith), Ieda Silva draws a visual narrative that transcends the merely artistic. With her passion for painting born out of her dedication to teaching handicrafts in a church, Ieda channels her inspiration directly from spirituality. This alabaster vase, painted with spatula technique and acrylic, becomes an altar of sacred colors, reflecting divine light and the delicacy of faith. Each brushstroke is an expression of devotion, transforming the work into a visual journey that transcends the limits of the canvas, connecting directly with the viewer’s soul.Ieda Silva developed her passion for painting gradually when she was invited to teach craft classes at a church she belonged to. Realizing the importance of honing her skills in order to offer the best to her students, she sought out courses and dedicated herself to learning at the faculty of pedagogy, where she had a curriculum focused on the arts. It was in this academic context that Ieda nurtured and cultivated her love of color, a passion that is now reflected in her expressive works of art.
