SOCAL ARTIST LIVING AND WORKING IN TX/AR
PAINTER BY TRADE AND HOBBY
Joseph Raymond is an American contemporary artist currently residing and working in The Four States area of Texarkana. A long time resident of Southern California, Joseph’s passion for creating artisanal furnishings and murals, naturally evolved into fine art painting in 2013.
Since this time, Joseph has exhibited in numerous solo shows, and his work currently resides in the homes of collectors worldwide. Joseph’s work transcends one particular style, as his diverse works range from bold, heavily textured pieces, to subdued, calm landscape paintings. Consistently used throughout his work, is the addition of various mediums including plasters, emulsions, beeswax, and a variety of paints, ink, charcoal, and glazes. His process of creating is multi-dimensional and organic in nature, as various traditional and non-traditional tools are used in his artistic process.
Joseph’s primary focus in creating is to evoke an emotional response for the viewer of his work. His hope is that his art transports the observer to a time, place, or special memory. Each piece created, is done so using the highest grade materials on gallery wrapped canvas and commissioned work continues to put this artist’s work in high demand.
