Raymond L. Haywood

Abstraction and improvisation are the essential elements of my paintings of abstract expressionist landscapes. Aspects of land, sea and sky dominate my compositions. 

Painting is the praxis that facilitates an entry point for gesture and content, creating a visual diary of my emotional terrain.

Scale is another key ingredient of my action based style of painting that incorporates my entire body as the tool applying layers of color over time.

Abstract Expressionism, Action and Color Field painting and the improvisations of Jazz are both muse and foil to my dynamic surrealist landscapes.
