RAYMONDE BERAUD: Two or Three Graces

Exhibition open 14.03 - 01.05.2024

Opening hours: Fri. - Sat., 3 - 7 pm.

Calea Plevnei 137c, Bucharest


A sweet spot where thoughts and feeling meet. A guilty pleasure, an indulgence, a small respite from the everyday, an escape: What does it mean to be a painter in this time in history? To choose to put time into creating images that are simply the result of their own execution; time put into paintings that are the consequence of layered inward processes blending into a form most unlinked to anything in particular. 


A privileged time, without doubt, one that Raymonde Beraud is acutely aware of. Her works, layering shadows and slick volumes, sometimes with long traces reminiscent of insect-made slow canals, or perhaps pipes to connect outside the frame, are conditioned to exist within their own planes. *They stutter backwards and forwards, again, across the same ground, accelerated, stalled and then, implode. They trace a journey that has no mark governing beginning or ending.* Raymonde’s new works get cosy at Sandwich and, while powerfully unaffected, exude all the power to utterly remodel the space around.


Maybe we can’t allow ourselves time for Three Graces, or maybe we don’t deserve to have it all. Escapism in small doses — Two..? — still something worth claiming.
