Art in Second Life 2022 (18) Crescent Moon by Adwehe

At Nitroglobus Roof Gallery a new exhibition was opened Monday, February 14th: “Crescent Moon” by Adwehe

Exhibition Poster created by David Silence based on a work of Adwehe

The exhibition “Crescent Moon” consists of 17 pictures of Adwehe. Once again the outstanding exhibition space with it’s mirroring floor and open sky adds a lot to the experience of it. Adwehe added light effects, hence you should use the preset environment settings in your viewer (in Firestorm top menu “World” -> “Environment” -> “Use Shared Environment”.
Besides the cresent moon that you can see in the sky, balloons appear and vanish in all colours of the rainbow. Although they block your view on the pictures at times, they add to the atmosphere and produce a particular light – and hence are part of the artwork.

Adwehe wrote about “Crescent Moon” in the accompanying notecard:
The moon has a mysterious attraction and influence on living beings and on many other things.. As the moon makes its way around the earth, its light, a reflection of the sun, marks shapes differently than how they really are: they get distorted.
In the virtual world of SL we are literally beings made of light, we might be gods, yet are we? The light of the moon is the indirect sunlight, and we the avatars are indirectly our human selves wrapped up in our own virtual creations.
Working towards this exhibition has been a journey exploring a mix between photography and painting, the real and the virtual, bringing out changing moods in strong colors. A play with the elements in a virtual environment.

Actually Adwehe pictures are quite varied, some have very strong and expresive colours, others are just black and white studies – but all show females, faces, bodies and poses.

I visited the exhibition already on Sunday, February 12th, and learned that i was a bit early. Adwehe added mord 3D sculptures to the exhibition which further makes is more an art installation then just an exhibition. The figures play with spheres .. the moon … and the spheres in all colours of the rainbow have a source now. Very intriguing!

Adwehe is still quite new to Second Life, she joined 3 years ago. What I saw so far from Adwehe was always very different as she tired out herself and the artisitic opportunities that Second Life offers: “I explore an ever changing drawing using lines, light and darkness, strong color and whatever i can find to express. Creating depth and perspective expanding the dimensions of the exposition room, mostly abstract and animating. The theme’s I always come back to are everlasting change, transformation, (in)stability, chaos, light, color, movement, slowness and (different) ways looking at the world. I mix textures from my traditional RL drawings, acrylic and oil paintings inside and outside of SL to achieve abstract and figurative patterns, moods and motions
