Overview

Daniele Genadry’s work contemplates the relationship between visual experience, memory, movement and landscape. She uses painting and photography to examine parallels between physical distance and passing time and to explore the potential of a picture to generate its own temporality. Through her practice, she considers how a mediated field of vision can sensitise our perception.

Genadry’s recent work draws from black-and-white stereoscopic images of the landscape and considers the medium of early photography itself as it began to translate the ‘seeing experience’, with the inherent problems of motion and perspective, into still images.

Her SB13 commission of three large-scale paintings—Light Fall, Lakelight and Blind Light (all 2017)—examines how the natural landscape presents ruptures in seeing and how light assumes a material form through surface, matter and subject. But water is the central element in these works, materialising light and acting as a force of erasure. Through the absence of representation, the water breaks our focus on the pictorial surface and displaces the mountain and rocks. Here, Genadry explores these intangible forces in a series of paintings that address notions of blindness and peripheral sight, in which the focal point oscillates between an empty centre and the suggestive details at the canvas edge.

This project was part of Sharjah Biennial 13.
