Changing Light | Dominique Prévost


November 23 – December 4, 2011

While observing the landscape, I go back and forth between the fore-ground and the back-ground. What was
crisp and gleaming one moment becomes evanescent and furtive. From season to season, dusk to dawn, light
is fleeting and constantly changing.

Dominique Prévost

Dominique Prévost juxtaposes colours, textures and patterns to suggest movement within the landscapes. The artist’s sensibility revels in the fluid uncertainty of watercolour, her medium of choice. In her work, she provokes accidents to lead transitional moments. Stains mark the passing of time and emphasize the pigment’s particularities on different surfaces. Patterns emerge and become integral to the compositions. The geometric configurations, with the colours and the spontaneous gestures, remain distinct, meet and activate the surface. Prévost uses handmade papers from Japan (washi) as well as other papers from France and England, each one offering a different set of qualities.
