Kadour primarily creates art as a photographer. After spending his early years painting, then taking an extended hiatus from artmaking, Kadour returned to making art in 2000 as a photographer interested in exploring light, color, and abstraction.
Kadour’s series of photographs, Boring, debuted at in Toronto in November 2005. Part social documentary and part creative portraiture, Kadour’s photographs use visual strategies typically reserved for abstract painting. Other series of photographs include the abstract Speed of Light; Urbania, which explores the imagery of urban landscapes settings; and M Series, which examines the psychology of portraiture.
In 2006, Kadour release an artist book, Art Is Food. The text of Art is Food was originally presented as an introduction to “Art Town Meeting,” a community forum held at Nectar’s Upstairs in Burlington, Vermont on February 28th, 2006. In the summer of 2006, Kadour illustrated the text. A hand-pulled screen print was made in Montreal, Quebec in August and September 2006. The edition was limited to fifty.
In 2008, Kadour released a follow-up to a 2003 series Speed of Light: More Speed of Light, which continue his exploration of abstraction and motion, and a body of work titled, Day and Night, that pushed the edge of whiteness and blur.
Kadour began exploring installation work in 2007.
In recent years, Kadour has exhibited work in Montreal, Toronto, Provincetown, and Vermont. His work is in private collections in London, England; Montreal& Toronto, Canada; Seattle, Washington; Provincetown, MA; Washington, DC; and New Jersey.
