Jean Pierre RAYNAUD
1939

Sculptor

Raynaud's pots are no longer the "containers" used for growing plants but, filled with cement, they become sculptures, and their geometric structure places them in a metaphor of shelter, of the house, of withdrawal into oneself. Rediscovered through bright colours, resized, or presented in its seriality, the object or "psycho-object", in Raynaud's own words, is no longer a functional tool, nor a carrier of its first symbolism, but provokes our imagination differently.

Quote

Jean Pierre RAYNAUD

"Before, we used to say that the work lasted a lifetime. From now on, an artistic career can be made in a few years, even if it means being destroyed afterwards because its author" no longer has the profile. "Current art must be an excitement, a kind of mental report, less retinal than before. It is the project which takes the top, more than what one sees. However, I remain convinced that as in architecture, one needs foundations solid to make something that holds up, a project that stands up to fashions and time. "
