Art Korner Weekly : Marginal mannerisms, a floating installation and much more

An impressive display of digital art, apartments designed by artists in their own unique style and the art of Duna Gant – all in this weekly newsletter.

Featured Exhibition

Marginal Mannerisms” by Bamboo Barnes

Bamboo Barnes is a master of digital art and amply proves her prowess once again in her latest exhibition at Dixmix Gallery. Her characteristic style of incorporating images made in SL into her works is once again seen in “Marginal Mannerisms“.

Mannerism, in the context of art, refers to a style which favors irrational settings, artificial colors and unclear subjects. It is a movement in which artists purposefully exaggerate characteristic features in their own work, thus developing a “maniera” (Italian for manner) of their own. This can be seen in Bamboo’s beautiful use of vivid colors and patterns superimposed on her SL images. As is often the case with good works of art, several interpretations can be made which vary quite a lot depending upon the viewer.

Visit this remarkable exhibition by Bamboo Barnes in the Amalfi room at the Dixmix Gallery and be mesmerized by her characteristic style.
