Wilmino DomondHaiti b. 1925
Chassés du Paradis (Expulsion from Paradise) 67.0005
Domond is primarily a coffee planter and paints in his spare time. He was initially inspired to paint by his cousin, Castera Bazile, however, their styles are very different. Domond repeatedly turns to subjects from the Bible and from vodou and is much more interested in the effects of pattern and detail. In this painting, Adam and Eve, who have clothed themselves with leaves, are expelled from the Garden of Eden by the archangel Michael who wields a sword. The lush garden is packed with dense foliage patterns and the flat profiles of various exotic animals.
