About the Artist
Emma O'Hara is a Wexford-born artist based in Cork City. Graduating from Limerick School of Art and Design in 2016 with a BA in Printmaking and Contemporary Practice she was awarded the Cork Printmakers bursary. Emma has since continued to work in Cork Printmakers developing her practice. O’Hara has been selected for a number of group shows and exhibitions. Her first solo show “Encounters” took place in Cork Printmakers gallery in 2018.
O’Haras works mainly with Photography and Screen Print. The artist takes her inspiration from everyday encounters with Landscape and Architecture. O’Hara deconstructs her surroundings and highlights them in a new life using interesting compositions and colour.
The use of colour is important within her work as it can set the mood. This helps the viewer to feel the senses experienced when one is emerged within a landscape. O’Hara likes to use place-able traits within her work. Using elements of architecture, characteristics of landscapes and even text for the viewer to recognise and in turn relate to. Believing there is no hierarchy of culture the artist wishes to celebrate all aspects of the mundane and uses abandoned structures often within her wok to highlight this. Emma wishes to convey the disparity between the structural forms of her surroundings with re-imagined human intervention.
