We already talked about the event promoted by Daxim Fall to involve Second Life users interested in graphic art to reinterpret the sketches of Giovanna Casotto, well known Italian author of erotic comics and water-colors. After the completetion of creation of avatar images inspired by Giovanna’s works, these days the artworks are displayed at the Solo Donna Club of Snieper Siemens.
Giovanna Casotto, a touch tough to imitate
The feeling you get observing the works, every one exposed close to the original Giovanna Casotto’s image which has inspired every artist, is that the Italian artist’s style is really tough to imitate through three-dimensional avatar as those used in Second Life and in other virtual worlds. A feeling, to be true, that often gathers who’s used to 2D images brought in three dimensions (just think about the so many superheroes movies, or to the transition from the 2D cartoons to those 3D: doesn’t it make you a strange effect to see how it transforms the characters?).
In the virtual worlds passion prevails on style
Nevertheless is undeniable the passion and also the creativeness that many Second Life “graphic dreamers” continue to show prevailing over technique, over the artistic style properly said. Thatt’s the beauty and the limit of an open platform in which close to users decidedly endowed with artistic ability cohabit hundreds of simple enthusiasts, who use the resources provided by the platform not so much to make a claim to be someone whom they are not, rather to relax and have fun.
See for yourself the work displayed in Second Life
In the Solo Donna Club exhibition both types of works, those of true artists and those of simple amateurs, are mixed sometimes at best, sometimes less. You’ll be the judge of what are the best interpretations of Giovanna Casotto’s works, some of which you an see in our gallery here under. The suggestion is nevertheless to go to visit the show to be able to experience directly the immersive experience.
