Alabaster & marble

Laforme, Kent

“I have been carving marble for the last twenty years. It is a commitment, which continually challenges me as an artist and feeds my fascination with stone. A block of stone has the capacity to act like a portal for the spirit, or perhaps it is the work itself that opens this door. When I begin cutting into a stone I feel captured by it, as if I am under a spell and need to try and carve my way out. I cannot distinguish if the devotion I have for stone enslaves or frees me. Either or, it is the wind in my sails.”

Prévost, Joël A

“My approach centres primarily on the polymorphic representation of the body in clay, I seek to capture the ephemeral movement and fleeting emotion stemming from the balance, beauty and energy of the body. This evolution is captured and evolves through space and projects the soul by playing with volumes, lines and compositions that border on abstraction.”
Joël operates the Vancouver Island Sculpting Studio. The mission of this art studio is to specialize in the creation of clay sculpture and to support the apprentice sculptor by providing technical and practical knowledge to deepen the study of the medium and the subject.
