EDOUARD DUVAL-CARRIÉ, a Haitian-born painter and sculptor, engages Haitian iconography to address contemporary social and political conditions of the region. His work explores the genesis of the island nation, and the suffering of this society of slaves and masters that brought forth the Haitian Revolution. Duval-Carrié reverts to the pictorial effects, imagination and fictions that were used to present the Caribbean as the “New Eden,” a fertile land of possibility that we see in the “traditional” works from Eastern’s collection. The artist never loses sight of the fabulous world of spirits that pervade Haitian mythology.
