Wilmino DomondHaiti b. 1925
Paradis Terrestre (Earthly Paradise) 67.0006
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 enjoy a garden paradise. Eve is taking fruit from a tree down which a snake descends, reminiscent of the story in Genesis. The lush garden is packed with dense foliage patterns and the flat profiles of various exotic and fantastic animals.
