Born in Port-au-Prince in 1954, Haitian artist Edouard Duval-Carrie studied in Canada and at the Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris before settling in Miami where he continues to live and work. Divine Revolution presents sequined banners, canvases with ornate frames, and a dramatic altar, all demonstrating the profound influence of Vodou and Haiti's complex cultural and political history. These works range in subject matter from celebrations and chronicles of the Haitian Revolution to examinations of the current plight of Haiti and its people. Duval-Carrie's art reveals a side of the Haitian experience that is not evident on the nightly news. The surreal starlit journeys of the Vodou deities and spirits who populate his paintings, juxtaposed with his carnivalesque portrayals of oppressive colonial and contemporary regimes, offer insight into the paradoxes of Haitian existence and the ambivalent nature of power itself, as well as a vision of the integrity of Haiti's ritual and spiritual practices.Cosentino, Donald is the author of 'Divine Revolution The Art of Edouard Duval-Carrie', published 2005 under ISBN 9780974872919 and ISBN 0974872911.
