Jean-Louis Raymond

Form, in poetry, can be understood as the physical structure: the length of lines, their rhythms, their system of rhymes and repetition. Similarly, Jean Louis Raymond’s artistic practice is an amalgamation of features shaped into a pattern. A pattern where one form shapes the next. Having collaborated with various people within the city to produce this body of work, Raymond’s art melds relations: the relation of the mechanical wheel to the malleability of clay, the relation of the clay to the artist. It also evinces a layered process of a symphonic creation- each note borrowing from the past as well as glimpsing into the future.
