Though Gilles Cyr’s work is rooted in the act of seeing

it is not content merely to remain with what is seen; it is not nature poetry, but goes on to encompass the nature of seeing. While nature poetry exploits its material, Gilles Cyr’s expresses wholeness, it makes the necessary connection between what is seen and what is seeing. Ultimately sight manifests itself, at the human level, in speech, and that is where the poetry comes from. Cyr, however, sees it as his job to send us back to where it all began.” — Yann Love-lock.
