a731: QUESTION ABOUT VODOU FLAG (fwd)
Hi Leah Gordon:
Silva Joseph's tapestry or "flag" is made out of sequins rather than woven
with needles. Silva Joseph's design is an art form representing his own
concept of a given reality at a specific time and space.
Silva Joseph's interpretation of a "female spirits in Vodou" is only his own.
This view does not in any way represent the true " female spirits in Vodou. "
Several artists have used different forms of art to depict many objects and
Vodou. It is simply a matter of individual interpretation. Asking anyone to
"decipher" the work of any artist, whether in Vodou or in Christianity, is a
difficult task. Because each individual views the world differently.
Therefore, these forms of art are abstract in their genre.
Wishing you luck with your exhibition. Happy Valentine's Day.
