About artist

Bourmond Byron

Byron, Bourmond was born in Jacmel, Haiti on June 23,1923. He studied at Freres de l'instruction Chretienne. He became a carpenter and also worked as a ship builder. A visit at Centre d'Art in 1948 inspired him to become an artist. In 1955 he joined the Centre d'Art as an established artist. His paintings are famous for their mystique and unique treatment of light. His color schemes consist of subdued blues and reds bathed in light shades of green. He has held exhibitions in France, Canada and the USA. His works are included in the permanent collections of the Musee d'Art Haitien du College Saint Pierre in Port-au-Prince, the Milwaukee Museum of Art, and the Waterloo Museum of Art in Iowa.

About the work

Painting Description:

“ The painting depicts a typical country side market. Underlying all Byron's paintings there is a complex, yet entirely rational and carefully worked out, geometrical structure. One of the pleasures in looking at his work is discovering this hidden geometry. This is a landscape to listen as well as look at. Byron teases the ear as well as delighting the eye. There are quite definite accents of sound: the crickets, the owls and the villagers chanting interrupted by moments of silence. All in all we are invited to enter the painting and walk through the trees or bask in the glow of the pale silvery moonlight. This enchanting piece is handsomely housed within a natural wooden frame. Painting is fully guaranteed”
