Joël A. Prévost Artist Statement

My approach centres primarily on the polymorphic representation of the body in clay, a medium that was at once the cradle of humankind and its first medium of artistic expression. My works draw on my thorough knowledge of anatomy enriched by my experience as a dancer. I seek to fix the ephemeral movement and fleeting emotion stemming from the balance, beauty and energy of the body that evolves in space and projects there its soul by playing with volumes, line and compositions that border on abstraction and lead matter to defy gravity. Some of my works are cast in bronze, but most of them are in clay that have been kiln-fired up to four times. Their unique glaze is the result of intensive research I have conducted on enamels, thus developing innovative combinations of minerals and oxides.
