Art in Second Life 2021 (14) “Skin by Mrs. S.” @ DixMix Gallery

I visited the exhibition “Skin by Mrs. S.” at DixMix Gallery.
Mrs. S, that mrs S (lauralar). I saw her “Magical Rooms” at Itakos Project and Art Gallery last year (read here), an exhibtion she made with her partner Mr S. (saka infinity).

The exhibtion at DixMix Gallery is quite different to what I saw before from mrs S. It consists of 10 pictures, of which 5 are held in white and dark blues and the 5 are more or less black and white like charcoal drawings. What they have in common is that they all show naked females.

The skin is white, the background is uni dark, hence you see just the curves, the shape and your eye is not distracted by anything else but a few white areas that could be windows.
The 5 pictures that remind of charcoal drawings just show a few lines with a tiny bit of shadows yet the contures are visibile, again you see the curves, the shape but even less a face.

Its the simplicity that makes the pictures intriguing, the clear focus on the shape of the naked female body. From what I see, I think the raw pictures were taken in Second Life and processed to provide the desired effect of simplicity.

Thank you Dixmix for providing and curating the DixMix Gallery, thank you Megan for building it and for contributing at it. I enjoyed my visit. The exhibition “Skin by Mrs. S.” will stay open until February 18th
