 “These paintings, even though two of them date back thirty years ago, express the same idea of the Haitian chaos linked to a chaos-world. Individuals are intertwined in a morbid/ immobile journey: a strange impossible exodus between nothingness and explosive lightThe spiral appears with a real and surreal double dimension in a tangle of paradoxes, a mixture of tragedy and utopia.” (Frankétienne)
