Ella Barnes is an emerging artist based in New York, NY. Barnes employs the cyanotype process to create works on paper and textile. Cross multiplying photography with sculpture and collage, Barnes’ work questions the shape of consciousness, probing for hidden patterns and discovering visual oases. Barnes has participated in shows in New York, Miami, and Berlin.
Ella works with an alternative photography method called the cyanotype process. This chemical solution applied to paper or textile yields blue toned impressions when exposed to UV light. Captivated by the infinite possibilities of working with light and shadow, Ella create images exclusively using this camera-less photography medium.
