Haiti • 1 Work(s)

Rachel Domond is a queer Haitian woman and self-taught artist based in Roxbury, MA. As an urban grower and organizer in her community, she fuses the various pieces of her identity in and throughout her art, in combination exploring themes of land, food justice and sovereignty, community and liberation politics. Within her paintings, she looks particularly to Black women and their ancestral relationship to the Earth and their weaving together of land and community, particularly centering in on those of Kiskeya/Ayiti, for inspiration in creating her pieces. Her goal is to illustrate the beauty and pride of Black connection to land, cultural pride and themes of home, encouraging viewers to appreciate the history of rootedness in communal practices.
