Art Reveal featuring the Photographic works of Paola Ismene
For this curatorial initiative I am proud to feature the photographic works of Paola Ismene, whose images depict a strong realism on the one side, and a blurry surrealism on the other side, making out of this mixture a great match.
It all begins outside: the mouth, the finger, the skin.
A blurry onirical state transports us from the “real objective” to ones own universe. The one composed by colors and feelings; free- associations. That world were the “I” makes sense. There is a free flow of scenes. We use autorrefernciality to explore.
We are now inside, in ones own consciousness and experience. There are more scenes overlapping. A need to bring order.
Finally, an impulse to get back outside.
Did we ever leave, if we accept with Paul Vaéry, that the deepest finds itself in the skin?

Obsessive observer. I found in photography the language to express my introverted personality, as a way to fragment and externalize my mental universe. I use colors and spaces as emotional analogies gestated from my life experiences. I try to explore the human and its comlplexity starting from self-referential narratives
