Divine Revolution: The Art of Edouard Duval-Carrié
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.

Review: Divine Revolution: The Paintings of Edouard Duval-CarrieUser Review - A. - Goodreads
A very slight read and an odd selection on his works. Duval-Carrié deserves a better book than this, but this is a decent beginning. Read full review
