Wébert Lahens Rebert Damour, 56, born in Léogâne, does not hide behind his talent; he has the gift of creating events, stories of his own, which he shatters on his canvases and thus surprises the curious, the collector. Damour's work regenerates expression; it is sometimes, like the others, the same subjects, a cotton or pepper plantation, but with such a careful treatment, so expressive, that we admire his touch, that we appreciate his work. Rebert Damour resembles, at one point, the Tintin brothers, exhibited like him at the Museum of Haitian Art of the Collège Saint-Pierre to a flagship exhibition. However, the rapprochement stops there. The path pursued by Damour led him to impose a style of his own. He develops and cultivates. The pangs of life in the capital led him to move abroad. He lives in Canada and continues to make his way. Group or individual exhibitions. The Damour style A childhood memory gave birth to his special touch in the history of Haitian painting. "Ta Vien", a huge man, but of extreme thinness, thin as a nail, had fascinated him and had retained his childlike sensibility. He never got rid of it. It became his main source of inspiration. "Ta Vien" looks like someone who grew up too fast. Large, highly developed – apparently, but, if you look at it carefully, it lacks the essentials. It thus resembles a "mess-stick". This model has revolutionized and marked his art, his work, his journey. « Rich in symbols and allegories, Rebert Damour's painting, refined to the extreme, is an encounter with poetry, an invitation to reverie and reflection. » As a Léoganais, Damour did not miss pampered subjects in his milieu. For example "Braided ribbons" (120x60 cm, 2007), "Gaguère" (90x60 cm, 2007), "Coffee merchant", 50x40 cm, 2009, etc. Nevertheless, he took advantage of the interest of buyers to deal with other subjects or simply create them for his admirers. For example: "Le bal des fourmis", 65x 50cm, 2013, Général La Paix, 50x40 cm, 2008, "Promenade en famille", 71x50 cm, 2008, "Fleur de tabac", 60x50 cm, 2005, "Pomme cajou", 75x 30 cm, 2007, "Ananas", 75x 25 cm, 2005, "Show de fourmis", 45x 35 cm, 2013, "Bal champêtre", 80x 60 cm, 2010. Rebert Damour creates his own path. His painting is simply original, meticulous, as in a Simil. It's all about how to distribute the colors, and especially the effects they produce. He is an artist that Haitian society – collectors in particular – would do well to look at in an exhibition at Marriott or the Best Western. Rebert Damour thus participates in the revival of Haitian art. Rebert Damour, painter of elegance...
