The Vision - Surreal Black Female Portrait

$ 20,000
  • Description
    Edouard Duval-Carrié now lives and works in Miami.
    Artist and curator Edouard Duval-Carrié incorporates Voodoo elements, mythology, and historical figures from Haiti’s past along with Haitian iconography in his surreal mixed-media paintings. Characterized by their magical realism, Duval-Carrié’s paintings confront the viewer’s notions of the Western art historical canon and reflect on the influence of Africa and the Caribbean. Kongo Queen (2015) depicts a universe where the real and the mythological coexist in an effort to discuss ideas on physical and metaphysical journeys and metamorphoses. He studied at the Université de Montréal, McGill University, the former Loyola College (now Concordia University), and École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts. Duval-Carrié’s work is in the collections of the Detroit Institute of Arts, Pérez Art Museum Miami, and the Musée de Panthéon National Haïtien. He received the Conseil de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres medal from the Consul General of France in 2014.
