Master of Light
Gesner Armand is clearly one of Haiti's finest non-primitive artists. Although difficult to reproduce here, the beautiful luminous light in his paintings echo the brilliant Caribbean colors of Haiti.
Armand joined the Art Center at a young age and originally worked in watercolor. His very first show at the Center, after a summer spent studying in Mexico City, was an instantaneous success. Continuing his training, he spent 2 years in Paris on a French government scholarship. After Pierre Monosiet death he became the director of the Musee d'Art Haitien, retiring in 1995 to be with his family. He exhibits in Haiti, Mexico, the U.S., Paris, Spain, Jamaica, Martinique, Venezuela, Barbados, the Dominican Republic, Guadeloupe and Israel.
