Galerie Monnin Haiti kicks off their second New York City show with Haiti’s leading contemporary artist, Pascale Monnin, opening Wednesday October 19th 2011 in Chelsea, New York (508 west 26th street, 9E)

Pascale Monnin’s universe is a celebration created from ambivalence; the union of contradictions. A mysterious universe where angels and beasts or children and wolves reside together. The bull vibrates with all it’s horns on an enflamed canvas. A green veined woman, or perhaps a woman-garden is smothered by leaves intertwined in her ideas. The Monnin world is a world in perpetual movement, unstable in its refusal to submit to monotony. Certain themes repeat themselves, but only to further push the boundaries of the known world.

Her mobile watches over this diverse environment where tenderly savage, mischievous children are in the presence of she-wolves and dogs. Pascale’s beasts, her animals from the womb, are full of humanity. Her oneiric world is inspired from reality, a transmuted reality muted in a trance. The diversity of colors, the mixing of forms, offer thanks to the omnipresence of the artist, a window bursting with amazing creatures.

More than thirty works and an installation are presented in this exhibit which constitutes for the artist a much anticipated return to New York City, where after her last show in 2002 Pascale Monnin went back to Haiti empty handed having sold every painting.

The exhibit will be on view until Saturday October 22nd 2011, in Chelsea, New York (508 west 26th street, 9E) Event hours are: Wednesday to Saturday from 11am to 6pm. For more information please contact or call during exhibition dates on +972 987 9551
