Gem Preiz is an exceptional artist who combines his adoration for nature with his zeal for crafting digital landscapes and fractals. His work is a must-see for anyone fascinated by digital art and fractals. Gem has been showcasing his artwork on Second Life for quite some time, and his previous exhibit can be viewed on the island of Akimitsu as part of “The Borderless Project,” which is sponsored by Akiko Kinoshi, the owner, and curator.
The Borderless Project is an eight-level, interactive digital art exhibit that explores what can be accomplished within a world where gravity is insignificant, physics is negotiable, and magic is conceivable! Gem’s levels comprise an array of thought-provoking spaces that enable visitors to completely immerse themselves in the experience. The Borderless Team of Magicians includes Betty Tureaud, Delain Canucci, Thoth Jantzen, Mitsuko Kytori, Blaise Timtam, and Akiko Kinoshi.
Gem’s personality is inspiring, as is his way of thinking, his complex and extensive knowledge, and the numerous exhibitions he presents in Second Life. His artwork generates a wow effect that gives a feeling of the vastness and immeasurable size of the world we live in and the enormous cosmos. His work has an indescribable power to absorb knowledge, emotions, and perspectives on life, as well as the theory of being, to question and expand it.
Gem’s passion for fractals reflects the power and purity of mathematical concepts, creating images whose complexity can evoke natural beings, objects, or landscapes. His levels comprise an array of thought-provoking spaces such as Souls, Petals, Lumen, Beads, Dream, Marbles, Jungle, Stream, Lamps, and many more.
LINES OF LIGHT is Gem’s latest work, which is the inaugural installation of a trilogy that will be displayed on the full sim grant of SLEA during the first half of 2023. This marks a new milestone in the development of his works on Second Life. The fractals, albeit still present in a fresh guise, are gradually giving way to the builds. The latter, saturated with light and reflections in the vein of “Borderless,” revitalizes the prominent sketches of the “Anthropic Principle,” “Skyscrapers,” and “Exoplanet.” It is in direct alignment with the Neon Art theme, utilizing the popular pink and blue color code and some classic patterns.
COLOR & GLOW is Gem’s upcoming installation, which is the second of three installations scheduled for exhibition on the SLEA 3 full sim grant during the first half of 2023. This installation expands the color range, opens up infinite horizons, and introduces movement and variation. A sequence of 12 vibrant scenes rotates every five minutes, and those familiar with his previous works may recognize some connections with elements from previous installations such as Elusive Reality, Borderless, and The Anthropic Principle.
Gem’s artwork is a stunning example of the power of digital art and fractals, reflecting the purity of mathematical concepts and the wonder of nature. His exhibitions have an indescribable power to absorb knowledge, emotions, and perspectives on life, as well as the theory of being, to question and expand it. He is a fantastic artist with great depth who loves to learn new things and then apply his vast experience to personalize it. He is a total professional as well as a great friend. Humble, self-effacing, and generous, he is the ultimate team-player with a great sense of humor whom everyone loves to be around.
For those interested in exploring Gem’s artwork, we highly recommend visiting his exhibitions on Second Life.
Trust me, it’s an experience you won’t want to miss!
“Educated in science and mathematics, I have always been fond of anything related to Nature, Cosmos and Earth, from astronomy to geology, and also a contemplative walker who spends his leisure time traveling around the world (not enough though), taking photographs (a lot), and mostly creating digital sceneries, abstracts, and fractals.
Nature is governed by physical rules which apply everywhere, regardless the size of things. On Earth, they design landscapes, repeating shapes or motions from the huge size to the tiny detail : dunes, waves, branches, clouds, rivers … The world of fractals is, in the same way, ruled by Mathematics functions which, as Physics do in Nature, enable to create objects which features repeat themselves at every scale. There lies my passion for fractals : create thanks to the power and pureness of the Mathematical concept, images the complexity of which can suggest Nature beings, objects or sceneries.
I hope you will enjoy the diversity of shapes and colors that fills my works, as a reflection of Nature’s one.” Gem Preiz
