IANICK RAYMOND’s mostly painterly artistic process questions the issues of painting in relation to the importance and role of digital images. He is motivated by a desire to play tricks on our visual reflexes. That is why his painted scapes seem obvious at first, their level of complexity coming through only for those who take the time to connect with their materiality. RAYMOND, a finalist at the 2011 RBC Canadian painting competition, recently completed a master’s degree in visual and media arts at Université du Québec à Montréal (2017). In the last decade, his work has been presented throughout Canada and recognized by several granting bodies. In September 2017, he completed the arts integration project to the architecture and environment of Édifice Wilder – Espace Danse in Montreal’s quartier des spectacles, and he very recently put the final touch to a similar project for Radio-Canada’s new home in Montreal’s quartier des Faubourgs. RAYMOND’s works can be found in several private, corporate and institutional collections.
