Where there’re no more excuses, there’s Forgiveness*
BRAINBOW is an obvious wordplay (Brain-Rain-Bow). Rain/Bow, because this character looked a little disturbed or emotionally down or naked-drained (the tears in the right eye), but still shining his light of a colorful inner self, just like a rainbow appears in the middle of the rain. Another illustration that there’s always some light (understanding) to be found even during the hardest times.
But “Brainbow” is also a very interesting scientific process to show individual neurons activity through fluorescent proteins. It allows to study & observe our brain / spirit activity, the locations, paths and interactions. And this perfectly echoes what this artwork’series means to me of an organically expressed spirituality.
