Description

Cut and hammered recycled steel oil-drum

Jolimeau grew up in Croix-des-Bouquets, the epicenter of Haitian metal art which was started there in the 1950s by Georges Liataud. He was a student of the early Haitian metal-cut artists Seresier Louis-Juste and Murat Brierre, and himself taught some of the currently working metal-cutters. This Sirene (mermaid) form combines a couple of common themes in Haitian oil drum artworks, the ocean and the mythical.
