Fantome

This is one of my favorite pieces. I had a lot of fun painting it. It’s my Creole rendition of the Apparition. It speaks to Haitian history, from the paliades where slave women were used for wholesale rape, to the decapitation of Dessalines. I’m always amazed at how Haitians never need anything about this one explained to them at all.

Oil on canvas.
