The Three Dimensional Gods and Goddesses Meet Their Cousins The Trees
 

Edouard Duval Carrié continues his explorations of trees as self-portraits.Carrié’s work has multiple influences that are somewhat unexpected. His art transports us to his unique universe albeit a mysterious one where anthropomorphic flamboyant characters, that are half men and half gods, half women and half goddesses, are set in a luxuriant yet cannibalistic landscape, which is often disquieting. This imaginary yet surrealistic iconography is undeniably impregnated by religious Haitian imagery. He revisits the vodou cosmogony, magnifying and modernizing it by incorporating his own fantastic, pop baroque, “trippy” world. Like an alchemist, he deflects rather sophisticated techniques borrowed from traditional savoir-faire such as plique-à-jour and others, to suit his aims.

Edouard Duval Carrié lives and works in Miami but stays anchored in his Haitian and Caribbean as well as African roots.
