Starting Wednesday, 2018, February 7th at the Koca Gallery in Second Life®, the 2D and 3D exhibition by Maddy Schimitzau and Solkide Auer is open to the public.
This exhibition is the consequence of the beautiful collaboration between two artists with a decidedly different style, whose fusion gives life to an explosion of lights, colors, and movement.
I like to see Maddy’s well-established awareness of using images together with Solkide Auer’s mathematical precision.
Surely Maddy is an expert on digital graphics techniques, just as Solkide is a skilled prims manipulator. The two styles, however, are very different: the complete freedom of expression of Maddy and the geometric precision of Solkide’s forms, repetitions, and movements.
Together they are the emotional and rational part that coexist in the same artistic environment.
Solkide Auer says about himself:
Second Life has been and is for me a very important experience.
The startling effect of curiosity for this metaverse soon turned into the wish of saying something trying to create a definite personality.
Building gave me that chance, that is the ability to creating objects of any kind, from the simplest to the most complex. All that after attending some courses offered by the school of Building at Second learning. Later on, after exploring this metaverse far and wide, I realized I wanted to do something that would go beyond the usual rule of structures or classical framing; so I tried to express my ideas through different sculptures. I started creating geometrical shapes then I used more difficult techniques such as “the shade”, which gives the possibility to manipulate a unique prim in a very complex way. As a result, I obtained unexpected and different shapes quite unlike the ones anyone can find around.
It is clear that I’ve been working hard to get this result trying to get the good ones a and long nights spent trying to understand how to frame at my best some works that could convey an emotion…. even the simplest, and that it could attract people to an idea I had in my mind or just to share my message with them.
In October I had the honor to be at “Virtual Renaissance” in Florence, with 5 of my work printed on 2 curtains decorating one of the rooms of Museum of Natural Science – Anthropological Section.
In March 2009 some of my works have been exposed in big monitors at Rome in the Adriano’s Temple during an exhibition about Digital Art.
I have participated for three years at the Burning Life in SL an exhibition made at the same time at the Nevada desert in the USA called Burning Man.
in this 3 years of SL I have participated at many exhibitions and exposed to the most important Museum of SL : Pirates Gallery – AHO Museum – Primtings Museum – Delacroix Hall – Crescent Moon Museum – Piramide Art Gallery – Museo del Metaverso – Diabolus Art Space – UWA (University West Australia) Gallery – Aeonia Arts – LEA (Linden Endowment for the Arts) and many other important gallery.
Maddy introduces herself in this way:
I born in SL in 2009 under the name of Magda Schmidtzau. Passionate about photography in RL.
In SL I am always open to new possibilities of experimentations, trying to convey the magic that I see.
I suggest visiting this nice art exposition keeping in mind that the two artists are hosted at the main floor, instead of at the first floor there are many different other artists for a nice fusion of styles and colors.
