Demokrasi
SKU: GF-1710

Oil and latex paint on "canvas" (39 1/4” x 59 1/2”), 1994.  
Vintage Gerard from a private collection.
Note:  Painting suffered in several years of storage by the artist (as described below) and has some areas of cracking and chipping of the paint.  Restoration work is recommended once painting is stretched.  Painting will be shipped rolled.

The owner of the painting provides the following notes on its subject and history:
Painted in 1994.  Bought in March 2007.  Gerard repainted some damaged areas prior to sale in 2007.  Artist put date (1994) on painting at the request of Jean Marie Bien Aimé.  The painting is a visual of an Aristide slogan whereby everyone in a democracy is able to share at the bountiful table.  The US soldiers (not UN) are Aristide's helpful agents in the desire for democratization of Haiti, where everyone has a place.  
When the painting was bought Gerard still maintained his support for Aristide.  He had hid the painting because he felt that his political opinion was dangerous.  The different political factions violence has been omnipresent on the Haitian landscape.
