Raymond Saá approaches his multi-media artistic practice as a builder of lines, shapes, and structures in sewn works on paper, paintings on canvas, and large installations. His work explores the chance tensions that arise between juxtaposed colors and shapes as they are constructed into compositions.
Raymond Saá was born in New Orleans, raised in Miami, and now lives in New Jersey.
