The Montreal artist Geneviève Cadieux explores the limits of photography for poetic ends. In Tears, which depicts a snow-filled sky, the close-up view eliminates any referents or identifiers. The detail provides no clarification, but rather plunges us into ambiguity. Enlarged and blurred, the image conjures up an atmospheric monochrome, an all-over composition that introduces an interplay of medium and surface lending it a painterly dignity. Metaphorical and melancholic, the work asks us to think about nature, in this case snow, in emotional terms.
