Raymond Saá’s collages are very process-oriented. Without a definitive image or composition in mind, he uses a precision knife as a drawing implement to achieve a linear quality as rapid and effective as a pencil. He seeks exciting tensions between different cutouts and unexpected consequences through the placement of shapes. Raymond Saá was born in New Orleans, raised in Miami, and currently lives in New Jersey. He received his MFA from Parsons School of Design and his BFA from Maryland Institute College of Art. Saá has shown his work both nationally and internationally with recent solo exhibitions at Margaret Thatcher Projects in New York and Proto Gallery in Hoboken, NJ. He’s also received awards from the Pollack Krasner Foundation and the Joan Mitchell Foundation.
