Edouard Duval-Carrié's "Imagined Landscapes" Tells Glittering Caribbean History at PAMM

When it comes to the art scene, Miami is still a baby sucking on its mother's teat. Helping nurture it to rapid adulthood, however, is Haitian artist and tropical culture buff Edouard Duval-Carrié. The 59-year-old's newest body of work, "Imagined Landscapes," is now showing at Pérez Art Museum Miami.

"This show is such a knockout," says the director of the museum, Thom Collins.

But long before his 11 large-scale paintings hung on the walls and two chandelier sculptures oscillated from the ceilings of the PAMM expanse, Duval-Carrié had been around the explosive art boom of Basel. He, alongside pictorial greats -- such as José Bedia -- has helped father the community by reinstating historic classics through a cultured modernity.
