Untitled (A) is primarily black, white, and gray. Raymond Saá’s collages are made of hand-painted paper, cut into various shapes that are then sewn together. The end result is an overlapping shingle-like pattern of color, shape, and form. The work is very process-oriented. While Saá has no definitive image or composition in mind, he uses the Xacto blade as a performative tool to rhythmically implement his drawings. The tension and unexpected consequences between the different color schemes and shapes yield to exciting and playful compositions that echo textile designs, reassembled and stitched back together. Raymond Saá was born in New Orleans and raised in Miami. His Cuban-Miami heritage is reflected in his foliage-like tracings and color choices. It is his mother who taught him to use a sewing machine. The artist received his BFA from The Maryland Institute College of Art and his MFA from Parsons School of Design and currently lives in New Jersey. His works have been exhibited nationally and internationally at Court Gallery William Paterson University, (Wayne, NJ), White Columns, White Room (New York, NY) and the Museum of Art Puerto Rico (San Juan, PR). He is also the recipient of the Joan Mitchell Foundation Award and the Pollack-Krasner Foundation Grant.
