Art in Second Life 2021 (111) The Art of Water and Colours by Sophie de Saint Phalle

I got an invitation to see Sophie de Saint Phalle (perpetua1010)’s newest exhibtion “The Art of Water and Colours” at IMAGO Art Gallery that opened Nvember 5th.
I had visited IMAGO Land in April 2021 the first time (read here). IMAGO Land is a moderate homestead owned Mareea Farrasco. There are several skyboxes that are used for exhibitions. Saint Phalle (perpetua1010)’s exhibtion “The Art of Water and Colours” is in main IMAGO Art Gallery. If the direct landmark doesn’t bring you to the skybox, use the teleporter at the landing point to get to the gallery. And if you’re there – don’t miss out to see the other galleries and IMAGO Land itself.

I have covered Sophie’s art in this blog quite often already. The last exhibtions I saw from her was “Escape” at Nacotic Concept (read here).

“The Art of Water and Colours” consists of about 25 pictures presented at the walls of the IMAGO Art Gallery As the title implies there are all watercolour pictures, some of these pictures were already shown at ][Octopussy][ goes Cuba last month (read here). But the presentation at IMAGO Art Gallery is more compact, the pictures have a stronger connection with eachother, you recognize patterns, pictures that belongs together but still have their own character. Most of the pictures are related to female and male bodies, yes erotic in some way, but also just showing the beauty you might see in them, others deal with emotions.

But there are also pictures, I had never seen before, they seem to belong to another phase of Sophie’s work. They are more classic watercolour pictures. I was very surprised seeing “Sophie as Baby”, a picture that doesn’t fit to the others. Also the pictures named “Namibia” are outstanding, probably they were made on the occasion of a vacation.
