History[ edit ] During the 18th century, the French colony of Saint-Domingue was the richest in the Caribbean, due to its massive production of sugar cane. This wealth was concentrated in the hands of a small minority of mostly French and European planters, who used slave labor from Sub-Saharan Africa to cultivate, harvest, and process their crops.
Out of the Dust - Haiti Earthquake:: Out of the Dust - first painting of the out of the Dust Series based on images and emotions of the January 12, Earthquake in Port-Au-Prince, Haiti - 48" x 60" painted September Acrylics on Canvas - Japanese Kanji reads "musume" daughter - more exploration into the lost of identity theme also the kanji and flatness is in the style of old Japanese wood prints.
A Father carries his hurt daughter through a fog of white dust. This painting was painted on top of an old Rain Series painting because I did not have the funds for new art materials so I often paint over my old work when I feel the need to express something deep and emotional.
So the rain drips of paint can still be seen that is intentional.
I lost friends and unknown family during that earthquake and while painting this I was extremely depressed. I planned to add the kanji to say that suffering is universal and also to detach and distract the viewer from the serious emotional flow of a father carrying his injured daughter.
The kanji breaks the viewer from the rest of the painting turning it into a flat thing as soon as the kanji is seen, a feeling of detachment comes to the surface.
Just as the world tends to forget bad events after a short time and forget that suffering still exists not too far away. Suffering still goes on. Be it a gift or a curse is not all I wish to experience in life I want to share my inheritance with the world and I want to explore other things that I have little knowledge of I cannot deny who I am but it is not an excuse to deny who I can become.A Cultural Competence Primer from Cook Ross Inc.
