Imagine Nations 2: Sil Brandi

Imagine Nations: entrance to the gallery.

I thought I add a small picture of the entrance to the gallery. Actually there are two, but this one is pretty, don’t you think?

The next three images are made by Sil Brandi. If I am not mistaken these are Second Life avatars, but the imagery has been changed so it has gotten a quality of it’s own. Each of the pictures have a kind of color scheme that sets the tone. It shows how colors can create a certain mood.

The violinist is a beautiful work done with red colors.  I like this picture as it has something mysterious about it. Like those pictures with elves sitting at a pond. The red colors are a bit risky. Red is not a natural friendly color, especially not in its stronger variants, like blood red or clear red. However it seems to work.  Somehow the picture also gives a sense of movement.

The tunnel is another nice mysterious piece. Normally tunnels are not a way out, but rather a way towards darkness that might have a spot of light at the end.  This pictures turns is around. The woman is almost out of the darkness and about to enter the light. The interesting thing is that I do not find the tunnel feels that scary.  A brown and lavender color scheme creates a warmer sense that black and grey would, which is probably why this picture is lighter than I expected.

The last goodbye-Sil Brandi

It was this picture that attracted my attention.  She almost looks like she is leaving not so much with anger but with a kind of grim determination. The yellow coloring make for a certain unease.  I wonder where she is going to, because she seems to be heading towards a dead end.
