Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting that speaks. Simonides

"My art takes root in the African heritage of Haitian culture.

The two main themes, which I have been painting during my whole career, are the representation of the Black woman and nature, developed according to haitian religious symbolism, binding these two interrelated subjects.

These themes are addressed in two ways: in the interpretation of the archetype or by the materialization of gods and goddesses embodied in a common mortal.

For many years now, acrylic paint has imposed itself as the main medium of my work. I usually use a smooth paste, luminous on a darkened background where my different characters, divinities from Africa and of Mother Nature reveal themselves, emerging from primordial waters."
