Janvier Louis-Juste

Posted by: frank in News Add comments

I’m always so pleased when I’m able to locate an older Haitian metal sculpture for the gallery.  Janvier Louis-Juste, along with his brother Seresier, were seminal sculptors in the village of Croix des Bouquets, Haiti in the l970’s and 80’s.  This sculpture is 24 1/2″ high, and is remarkable for the welding done on it, and for it’s three dimensiality.   I’ve never seen a work like this before, and I think it’s superb example of this art form of this period.
