There are journeys that are not... it is with these words that the artist could describe the outcome of a residency in which he had the privilege of participating in Italy. He left to make the most of the time he spent sharing his art, and very quickly found himself immersed in an environment for which one is never really prepared. In the heart of Naples, in the middle of the Scampia, a neighbourhood that has long been the field of action of the Neapolitan mafia, he contributed to the mediation of the neighbourhood through his artistic contribution. A difficult task when you tell him the history of this Neapolitan suburb, still today the scene of frequent violence. The work done during this residency remained on site... that is why, on his return, he wanted to preserve an image of this unlikely universe that is both conducive to reflection. Scampia II is thus the reflection of two worlds which oppose each other with a message of hope for future generations in the background...

Dominique Prévots

  • KAZoART artist since 2020

Dominique Prévots was born in 1953 in Le Havre, France. He grew up in a family for whom Art is only intended for an elite, and would not lead him to a serious future. After a long career in the digital world, weary of this ever-changing environment, he decided to follow an artistic training, convinced that this path should have been his own.

Discussing other than with words is the goal that Dominique Prévots has wanted to achieve since he entered the world of abstraction. This is not always easy to do in the face of the inevitable questions of the spectator.

Through his painting, Dominique Prévots is looking for a new language. A dialogue at the crossroads between the unreal and the figurative, between the informal and the suggestive. It's the thought that drives his gesture on the canvas. This thought, present as soon as he confronts the blank canvas; a thought that does not leave him until the work is completed.

As the work progresses, Dominique Prévots talks, the brush in action, sweeping the canvas with incessant gestures, often gentle, caressing, to envelop the creation of an atmosphere, an ambiance. When he grips the knife flat, it is to accentuate a precise point of the thought that guides him, when he manipulates the sharp side, it is to mark a stopping point, an interrogation.

The plastic work follows this verbal progression, this sequence of reasoning. The artist often instinctively questions himself, wonders about the relevance of his words, about their coherence. At the last brushstroke, at the last incision of the knife, reflection ceases, the artist "passes the hand", he entrusts the work to the eyes of the beholder, it is now up to him to destructure the artist's thought... if he wishes.
