Enticements of the Marketplace
Shopping day in the Haitian Market in Hinche is an acrylic painting on a mixed media collage. The young market-bound man has refurbished a couple bicycles and now pushes a loaded cart of imported plastic items. Behind him he passes a woman selling woven baskets and brooms made from raw materials next to her. A young child walks uo the road carrying a large tub on her head. Does she carry laundry? Dried goods or fruits? I wonder if she comes to sell, or to buy. Has she ever bought anything off the man's pushcart?
