Art in Second Life 2020 (84) Barock by Caly Applewhyte

I visited the exhibtion “Barock by Caly Applewhyte” which was opened December 5th at the DixMix Gallery. The theme of Caly (Calypso Applewhyte)’s pictures in the room “Abby” is – surprise – Barock. The room itself is decorated with the luxury colour of this period – red. Dark red curtains at each side of each picture like a curtain being opened to showcase the art. Red lights at the red walls, a dark floor.

The pictures itself presents avatars, fantasy persons, not necessarily from that era, but with wild hairstyles and often colourful make-up. But they all are dressed according to Barock. And the paint has already become brittle like it does on old paintings. This combination is intriguing and invites to take a closer look to decide which effect is dominating in this or that painting.

Caly (Calypso Applewhyte) is a SL Photographer from France, who joined SL in 2010. Her focus is the avatar itself as a means of expression to transport emotions. She processes her pictures with Photoshop. I have seen her work already a few times and you can recognise her style, she has found her personal characteristic artistic style. Her pictures do tell stories, like good art has to do.
According to her profile Caly also blogs and has written articles for several magazines. And she also make portrait pictures of course. You can see her work also on her flickr account.
