Seide, Jean Adrien (Haitian, b.1952)
Self taught Haitian artist, Jean Adrien Seide was born in Cayes in 1952. He moved to Venezuela when his father passed away. He paints landscapes that are extremely structured, with a series of fields spreading out towards a distant horizon. At first glance his paintings look representational but a more detailed examination leads to a fascination and the fantastic element predominates over the immediate reality. He has exhibited in Haiti, Ottawa, Montreal and Miami. "Horizontal lines evoking fields cross the vertical lines of trees to create a coherent landscape."
