February 16 – March 6, 2022
Artist in attendance on Saturday & Sunday and by appointment
With the exhibition CIRCLES, my perspectives are shifting and opening up, now meshing what’s above, below and within.
Mesmerized by anything fluid, I rejoice in making suminagashi – the ancient Japanese technique of marbling papers by floating ink on water.
Using inks allows me to be free of matting and glass, making for a more direct and sensuous contact with the colours, textures and many patterns at play.
The different papers, particularly the heritage washi, all capture the inks in a unique manner. Since each has its own intricacies, choosing which ones will work with one another in harmony becomes the compositional game!
My art shows my connections to the world and conjures our multidimensional states of existence.

CBC/Radio-Canada Interview: Y A PAS DEUX MATINS PAREILS
Culture : Dominique Prévost à la galerie Propeller Rattrapage du vendredi 25 février 2022 Durée de 12 minutes
Dominique’s artworks are atmospheric abstracted landscapes. They are assemblages showcasing changing light, organic patterns, and stylized structures. Each artwork is composed of multiple painted and manipulated surfaces that evoke the perception of depth and space. Dominique uses watercolour, acrylic, ink, crayons, and found material on a wide range of papers; ranging from exquisite handmade Japanese Washi papers and classical European watercolour papers, to utilitarian papers.
In the works, many patterns are at play. They are the ones found in our veins, rivers, trees and skies. Lino printing and Japanese Suminagashi marbling technique, are used to make visible the connections of what’s above, below and within.
Dominique Prévost was born in Québec City and now resides in Oakville. She has shown extensively in the GTA since the early 80’s and her work can be found in many collections here and abroad. Three times recipient for Best Watercolour Award at the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition, she is a Board Member of the Burlington Fine Arts Association, a Member of the Ontario Society of Artists, and a Member of Propeller Art Gallery. www.dominiqueprevost.ca
