Says João Castel-Branco Pereira: “Orchard gives a body to a warrior and gallant camões, a memorist of a poetically fictional homeland, in medieval duels, east exotes and fiery loves on mythical islands. Another way of being Portuguese is what the artist records in Bocage, irreverent and sarcastic narrator of burlesque stories, which does not show a tenebristic consciousness of life. From the twentieth century, two emblematic figures of our contemporaneity are represented: Fernando Pessoa and Almada Negreiros. The first, character of the modern drama of the impossibility of the individual being one, dismaying himself in different heteronyms, sitting simultaneously to the same table of urban coffee. The second, cosmopolitan, exploding its integrity in the diversity of talents, harlequin of their drawings, elegant city, passionate of seeing, always attentive observer. ”
