PASCALE MONNIN

"These characters, these animals which live in my paintings are a little like gods, spirits of a mythology that belong to me. They whisper something that I cannot completely grasp, they speak of the living, of the dead. They speak about me, but their language is coded and I can't quite understand them. Fellow travelers they are at times friendly, terrible, defenders or manipulators, they send back in mirror image wanderings, poetry and doubt."

Born in Port-au-Prince March, 1974.
