Art in Second Life 2021 (105) “Fusion Evolution” by Etamae

It’s been a while that I saw anything from Etamae. Last year I had quite some blogposts about Etamae and her art. I visited her Eta’s Feed Your Fetish Gallery (see my blogpost here) and her Extempore Gallery and Lounge (read here). I saw her contribution to the joined exhibition of April 2020 at La Maison d’Aneli (read here). I saw her “little boxes” at Hannington Art Foundation (read here), her “Memories of a Foreign Reality” at Itakos Project Art Gallery (read here) and in January 2021 I saw her exhibition “Waves of Silence” at DixMix Gallery. (read here).

Etamae is in Second Life since January 2016. She’s from the UK and began transforming her pictures from the things she has seen and loved in Second Life into something else, in digital art in 2018. Etamae is not defined by just one style or area of art, she plays with different patterns and tries herself out in a broader spectrum of art. Like all other exhibition of Etamae “Fusion Evolution” at the DixMix Gallery is once again something new. Etamae proves her attitude to try out herself and to further develop her art.

The exhibition “Fusion Evolution” is located in the room Abby at DixMix Gallery. It consists of about a dozen partly quite large pictures. The walls of the room and the floor is kept in black. At the walls you see reflections and light effects coming from two turning pictures located the corners of the exhibtion room. This way Etamae’s pictures develop a certain dynamic as the light effects mix into the pictures around.

All pictures are very colourful, and have strong colours thus contrasting to the dark black room, they a seem to be made of different layers. Some of the layers move and change so that your get permanently a different perspective. Although you can’t really recognize it, Etamae herself is the model who’s face you can see peek through in many of the pictures. She made herself part of her art, evolving through a feast of colours and abstract forms.
