ROOT IDENTITY, COLOMBO, SRI LANKA, 2011

Life-size heads and busts cast in white, grey and black cement, mounted on mahogany bases, also a series of cement masks and a bronze figurine.

Dominique has a predilection for figurative sculpture and has been exploring this
art form under my guidance since the summer of 2010. Having worked with a
large number of students over the years, I recognized at once the sculptor’s hands and character in the way Dominique took possession of the clay and started shaping it to reflect her thoughts and feelings, without referring to a model. She seems to find her inspiration in her Haitian roots and in her experiences exploring the world, including Sri Lanka.
