CARLO THERTUS : THE-R-TUS

Haiti 1804 and Today Oil on Canvas 57" x 98" 1993

In 1804, Haiti became the first black Republic in the new world to attain independence. In this painting Haiti is depicted in white within two dimensions, one large the other, small. The question is whether Haiti is growing because of it's need to be a free, democratic nation, or shrinking as a result of fighting amongst its own people. Why?
