Artists Bio : Eoin O'Conaill

Eoin O Conaill, born in Ireland in 1979, completed a B.A. in Documentary Photography at University of Wales in Newport in 2003 and has been working through the medium of photography ever since. His work challenges the conventional view of the picturesque and focuses instead on the human presence within the landscape, creating subtle views of the everyday spaces where people live, work and spend time. His work explores the relationship between people and the Irish landscape and charts a course between the particularities of specific locality and the global anywhere of the contemporary developed world.


Eoin has exhibited his work in solo and group exhibitions both nationally and internationally. Most recent exhibitions include ‘Oileán', a Solo Show in the West Cork Arts Centre, "Postcards from the Celtic Tiger" a group exhibition held at the Xuhui Art Museum, Shanghai, China, and "Home" as part of the PhotoIreland Festival 2010. Eoin O'Conaill has been selected for the Claremorris Open 2010.


In 2008 he received the Belmont Mill National Award. In 2009 Eoin was awarded the Gallery of Photography Artist's Award where he held a solo exhibition of ‘Common Place' at the Gallery of Photography, Dublin.


His work has been published in a number of national and international papers, magazines and art blogs.

Canson-Infinity BARYTA Photographique

canson

Canson has been making paper since the time of Michelangelo. Some of the most beautiful art papers ever made made have been sold under their Arches label. They have supplied famous artists such as, Picasso, Chagal, Warhol, Ingres, Miro and Alechinsky. Irving Penn made his platinum prints on an Arches base paper. You cannot buy a heritage like that.

BARYTA Photographique offers the look and aesthetic of the original darkroom baryta print and complies with the ISO 9706 standard for maximum longevity.

Baryta is a clay-like substance long used as a coating in high-end B&W traditional chemical darkroom papers, intended to enhance whiteness without the use of optical brightening agents.

This is a smooth surface paper, and when looked at obliquely one can't see any "surface". But, when there is ink on it, especially blacks and dark tones, there is what looks like a micro-stipple similar to traditional Baryta photochemical papers.

This museum grade photo paper shows excellent black density and great image sharpness. There is a brilliance to the paper – depth of saturation which makes it ideal for black and white as well as colour photography.

 

All inks used are pigment based and of archive museum quality.
