"Life in Bold Colors " Explores Haitian
Art at University Art Gallery
The works of 16 Haitian artists are featured in "Life in Bold Colors: Haitian Art from the Collection of Patrick Jamieson" through April 27 at the University Art Library. The exhibit depicts the unique interests of Patrick Jamieson of Novato who invites the viewer to explore Haitian art through the lens of a collector. Jamieson is interested in understanding how these particular West Indians - descendants of slaves - understand their own relationships to the rest of the world; and how their artwork embodies the social, religious and political powers that provide multiple subtexts for daily existence. Many of the works shown in "Life in Bold Colors" are created with vivid colors - an ironic contrast to the turbulence in Haiti over the last century.
