'Tranquil Droplets', the June 2020 exhibition @ Nitroglobus by Bamboo Barnes.
Bamboo Barnes is a self-taught Japanese artist who has been working with digital images in Second- and Real life. The first striking thing about her works is the fierce bright colors she uses. It's the first time Bamboo used Second Life avatars faces as subjects for her exhibition. She admitted honestly she didn't pay a lot of attention to the 'looks' of these avatars she portrayed; they are not 'beautiful, lovely or cute', however, they sure are full of meaning and reality.
To Bamboo the most important thing of art is emotion. In her work she presents personal emotions. Her inspiration comes from the image itself or from music. In this case from the sound of water dripping.
Dido Haas, owner/curator
'The dripping water that echoes in the silence ......; a sound which one usually won't really notice. However, if you DO notice, this is a sound you can't stop hearing and which, even after it's gone, will keep on repeating in your ears.'
