Ianick Raymond

Ianick Raymond approach painting as an experience that helps him understand how a painting is viewed, how the eye scans the canvas. Driven by a desire to tinker with visual reflexes, he try to create pictorial spaces that first glance seem obvious, but whose complexity is revealed by degrees as the spectator comes into contact with their materiality. Raymond focus on two fundamental aspects of painting: the luminosity of color (values or tones) and the work’s materiality, in order to explore the possibilities of a painting as a perceptual device.
