This painting was done several months before the earthquake- inspired painting to Arte Americas Annual Fair in Miami Beach. It has the artist's signature and date "09" in the lower right area of the image; the work is untitled. A Dodard composition depicting a group of stylized figures, each reduced to geometric forms, wearing exotic headdresses of green and blue leaves one figure appears playing a horn or flute; in the lower right area a face is depicted outlined in black in profile. The background is rendered in hues of turquoise and tones of green, each shape outlined the dark brown or black. The artwork is enclosed in a wood frame having a grooved white border. "The Earthquake" Collection is a series of five paintings created by one of the most celebrated Haitian contemporary artist, Philippe Dodard. The works are typical of the artist's oeuvre of Expressionist compositions that make political and social implications; hieroglyphics with hidden meanings; in this case the earthquake that devastated Haiti. The artist's use of great color intensity magnifies the emotion.
