“In the process of painting, for the one thing that someone sees, there are innumerable things that they never see”
– Raymond Saunders
Raymond Saunders has been an important presence in American Contemporary Art for over 50 years. Frequently compared to Cy Twombly, Robert Rauschenberg and Jean-Michel Basquiat, Raymond Saunder’s voice has remained unclassifiable and singular. Unique in its expression, within each piece his voice is heard in dialogue with itself; like a freestyle jazz session where various instruments interact and respond with chance and intention, with rawness, and control.
