Born in Strasbourg in 1938, Raymond E.Waydelich still lives in the Alsatian city and works vigorously in his studio.
As a young man, Waydelich travelled through North Africa as a photographer where he discovered his fascination for archeology , which plays a main role of his art making throughout years, appeared and re-appeared in his work as “the archeology of the future“. An insatiable collector of all manner of objects, Raymond dissembles and re-assembles, paints, preserves and documents. His works may be 2-dimensional or sculptural. In them we find the world and its contents gathered together like cards in a deck, then shuffled and re-dealt into fascinating new juxtapositions.
