DUAL by Emma Barone

Dual by Emma Barone

An exhibition of fine art photography by Emma Barone at the Art Lounge at The Chestnut Bar, Green St, Birr, Offaly, on show until 31 August.

Barone uses the process of recording two superimposed images on a photographic medium, usually done intentionally to produce a special effect. Her pieces capitalize on the dualities of light and dark, stillness and movement” piercing the veil which divides the shadow from the substance.

These colourful images highlight the power of double exposure, it creates multifaceted compositions that showcase nuanced emotions in a way that mimics fine art rather than pure documentation. Layers are interwoven and interrelated, what happens on one level affects all layers of the image.

Photography soon became more of a passion as Emma began developing her style from a base in fine art. Now her work focuses on elements of nature with a minimalist aesthetic and introspective stillness, allowing space for the viewer to visually explore and connect with the images. The resulting work is an interlocking ethereal feast for the eyes, where colour, pattern and form is prioritized. Leaving the viewer with a glimpse into a vibrant parallel universe.
