For Immediate Release
Works by Marie Denise Douyon Featured at Espace Brandt
MIAMI, FL (December 2, 2005) - "L'Art A Palabres: Recent Works by Marie
Denise Douyon" will be on display through the end of January at Espace
Brandt, 17711 SW 81st Court, Miami, with a reception for the public to meet
the artist on Saturday evening, December 10th, 2005 from 6 to 10 PM.
Visitors are welcome at other hours by appointment.
Marie-Denise Douyon's most recent figurative artwork features drawings,
paintings and sculptures on engraved and painted calabash, mounted on metal
frames. Inspired by proverbs, fables, images and songs of African and
American oral tradition, these works present a fascinating parallel between
visual and oral traditions as well as contemporary art and Haitian metal
Born in Haiti, Marie-Denise Douyon studied Visual Arts in New York before
returning to her country of origin for a few years. Since she immigrated to
Montreal in 1991, her artwork has translated an identity rooted both in her
country of origin and her adopted country.
The "L'Art A Palabres" collection is being showcased in the intimate venue
of Espace Brandt, a spacious residence-cum-gallery that provides viewers
with an accessibility and opportunity to experience Douyon's work in a
setting uniquely suited to the expressivity and spirituality of the work.
All Espace Brandt exhibitions are presented by Vie & Art Collections of
Miami, whose mission is to bring to the forefront outstanding Haitian
contemporary artists. For more information, please call Emile Viard at
(305) 494-1872 or Pasha Brandt at (786) 287-6499.
