Two Souls Meeting; April exhibition at Nitroglobus Gallery
The theme of this exhbition is EMOTIONS.
And, there are a lot of emotions in the artwork of both photographers. Although Paola and Maloe have a different style, they share the need to express themselves in strong sometimes edgy work.
Lemme tell you something about these artists:
MALOE VANSANT has been around Second Life since 2007 and she started with taking snapshots and making a sort of graphic diary of Maloe's journey in Second Life, showing the emotions Maloe experienced. She uses photoshop to postprocess her work.
To Maloe her photography in SL is a way of expressing her creativity, her passion, her feelings and emotions experienced in this pixel world and maybe also her dark side.
PAOLA MILLS also signed up Second life in 2007, after hearing a lot about Linden Lab in the media and being passionate about video games ever since she was a girl. Paola isn't a professional RL photographer but she does like to take pictures when she sees something she likes; a person or a situation, that's the reason she always carries a small camera in her bag.
Second Life has allowed her to develop, without the need for powerful means, her emotionalism: by capturing a feeling into simple shots that freeze that specific moment in time.
Unlike many artists in the metaverse she works her snapshots in handicraft way using minimum graphic editing software.
Paola hopes her photos can be a stimulus of irony, emotions and feelings and that her photography goes beyond a simple observation of the photographer itself.
