2013: Deolinda Fonseca receives attention from The Washington Post's highly acclaimed journalist Glenn Kessler, known as "The Fact Checker". Normally into big politics, holding politicians from both sides of the political spectrum to their words - in the September 27. edition Glenn Kessler describes, how his wife and he used the internet to collect original design pieces and materials to rebuild and expand their beautiful 1960's home - in the process customizing their entire bedroom around a large painting by Deolinda Fonseca. Likewise another painting is optically expanded by interaction with a hallway mirror (ill. above).
Maybe something to consider, when it's time to remodel home or offices? Instead of buying a painting to fit the new sofa, maybe the painting could be chosen first/simultaneously, skipping the often artificial separation of concepts of "art", "design" and "decoration".
