Abstract

Abstract:

What follows is a highly personal response to one of Lidwien van de Ven's photographs in the Lidwien van de Ven: Living On exhibition at the University of Manitoba School of Art Gallery. Readers will soon recognize the truth of what I openly confess here at the outset: I have no competence in art criticism, and I am no more than an amateur photographer myself. I am writing about this photograph simply because I find it compelling. To my surprise, it elicits from me thoughts about the poetry of Friedrich Hölderlin and Georg Trakl, thoughts that hear strains of Gustav Mahler's Kindertotenlieder.
