I recommend a visit to the DiXmiX Art Gallery during this period.
Two good artists are presenting their latest works: Duna Gant and Harbor Galaxy.
Duna Gant’s exhibition is entitled “Poetic Lines” and is a hymn to minimalism, but at the same time to the attention to detail. This statement seems to be a paradox, but Duna’s images are characterized by being simple because the contexts exhibited are minimalist; but at the same time complex as the artist pays considerable attention to details such as the choice of color, the position of shadows, and the use of light. The complexity of Duna’s work is also evident in the overall harmony of the context on display. We are not talking about landscapes or faces. Duna’s artistic image can also be a simple ladder, but the way it is presented with colors, lights, and shadows, as well as the objects that are placed near the ladder, makes the artist’s image very interesting.
Duna Gant introduces her exhibition “Poetic Lines” in an introductory notecard of which I report some significant passages:
“We are surrounded by small things, in our daily life, to which we give an absolute value or utility without stopping to think that, beyond what they are, they also enclose a poetic line that can make us reflect.
That’s what I have tried to do in these compositions—going deeper not only on its aesthetic side, but also on the concept, and sometimes changing it radically.
I have sought, through the simplicity of the photographs, to open the door to the viewer, inviting them to see beyond what these images objectively show.”Duna Gant
Another artist I recommend to visit at DiXmiX Art Gallery right now is Harbor Galaxy: her artistic exhibition is titled “Melange.”
Harbor Galaxy has been working with images captured in Second Life for several years now. I’ve always found it fascinating how this artist manages to process the photographs in such a way that they look like paintings, like credible works of art in reality. Harbor can make complicated things look simple. The processing of her photographs is not a simple operation, but she presents her artworks in a natural, unsophisticated way. Moreover, the artist can deal with different themes: in some cases, the images arouse sensuality, in others’ joy, in others’ sadness or despair. The considerable experience that Harbor has accumulated over the years allows her to the range, embracing even very different themes.
As always, I leave all the useful references at the end of the article. For those who want to visit the Duna Gant and Harbor Galaxy Flickr, it is certainly interesting.
