"There is nothing objective, much less consensual. That is why we find no setting in her work, no didactic intent or narrative thread. ."Indeed, it could be said that this is one of the primary characteristics of Jodoin's work: giving back to the world, and to us in it, its share of shadow" "There is a kind of meeting that takes place in Jodoin's work and gives it a sacred quality: a sacredness that has nothing to do with religion, or the supernatural, or the numinous. It is a sacralization achieved only in ontological poverty, where the world and life are shown in the essential fragility projected on to them by the shadow of death; the miracle of the light within which, through a holy vibration from that eternal night, being offers itself to the presence of the vision."

Jill Corner translation of text by Dario de Facendis, Sophie Jodoin., 2000
