Pan American Art Projects launches their next exhibition featuring the work of the artist Edouard Duval-Carrié.
Carrié's work refers to art history and literature, including regional elements from his country such as religion and folklore.
He brings into his work the nearly fantastic world of his country, in images that could be seen as illustrations of myths and legends. He also touches on neuralgic aspects of present Haitian life such as migration and its effects on the country.
On March13th the Perez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) will open Edouard Duval-Carrié solo exhibition. The artist will present primarily large scale resin paintings and sculptures. These new pieces reference nineteen-century landscape paintings that depict Florida and the Caribbean.
Duval-Carrié was born in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, in 1954. He was educated at the University of Loyola Montreal, Quebec, in Canada; and at the Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaux Arts, Paris in France. In 1992 he moved to Miami, Florida, where he currently lives and works.
