The publication includes texts by the art critics and curators António Pinto Ribeiro (Lisbon, Portugal, 1956), Beate Reifenscheid (Gelsenkirchen, Germany, 1961) and David Barro (Ferrol, Spain, 1974) gathering about 90 images of works and exhibitions that were held between 2010 and 2019.

According to António Pinto Ribeiro “(…) José Bechara, who comes from a Western tradition, deploys the techniques that he has mastered best. His glasswork is painting in transition to sculpture and back again to painting. When suspended, transparent, the coloured glass holds the immensity of the air. It is sculpture, therefore, in the geometric rigor that served as a technique but that now serves to subdue’ the materials’ turbulence. There is nothing natural nor acquired about the rule of perfection that comes from these sculpted colours. Beauty emerges from them as the product of constant creative work that goes on continually, daily and without respite, or as the artist says, to swim, you must overcome the sea.
