Dominique Prévost & Andres Vosu: Circling Back
Dominique Prévost & Andres Vosu
December 1 – 15, 2023
Opening Reception: December 1, 2023, 6pm – 8pm
Station Independent Projects, Toronto
Station Independent Projects is thrilled to present the work of Canadian artists Dominique Prévost and Andres Vosu. Prévost and Vosu explore the circle motif in their mixed media works. Circles in art have been utilized since Greek antiquity and the Renaissance as a symbol of unity, infinity versus containment, regeneration, birth and life and to symbolize geometry and our vast solar system.
The circle is utilitarian as well as an attractive symbolic form for Vosu and its visible or invisible circumference, has become a much more preferred container, than the rectangle or the square. Its form is the creative impulse that inspires Vosu and his process stays true to keeping image content within the circle’s circumference. Whether depicting the geometric acrobatics of circles within this form or within solitary orbs, Vosu’s process is unique to each specific work and he incorporates a number of media including paint, graphite, mylar, washi paper and wood panels.
Prévost creates assemblages that showcase changing light, organic patterns and stylized structures and the circle is a recurring compositional motif in her works. Each of her artwork is composed of multiple painted and manipulated surfaces that evoke the perception of depth and space. Prévost uses a wide range of medias ranging from washi and watercolour paper, acrylic, ink, watercolor and found materials. Her Circle Series is about joy, expansion, exuberance and life itself. She explores both the micro and macro that can be found in veins, rivers, trees and skies and as a universal symbol that makes visible the connections of what’s above and below and that connects us all.
