Images and texts for Yasha
While I want to tell some great new works by graphic dreamer long been known for their creativity as Marlia Looming (who now also offers images from Aion as the series actually called Aion-Asmodae rather than from Daz 3D), Connie Sec (Baiser de feu is one of my favorite pictures ever among those seen in recent weeks), VladMlad (whose tract is becoming increasingly “graphic” as in Milna’s cemetery) and always surprising Chrystalship Rehula (just take a look at Third eye), I can not but notice how avatars and landscapes at the moment constitute the issues most assiduously followed by the artists that use virtual worlds as a medium for their works.
Images that are between the fairy and the everyday life and which Yasha (I can finally select as our graphic dreamer of the week a boy!) can mix in his gallery exploiting the Second Life platform in a way that in reality is not in itself original (avatar images and digital landscapes are among the most widespread since the existence of virtual worlds) but which Yasha proposes with a very personal cut, both in shots and in colors. Colors ranging from vivid to dull, from the small intestine from the brilliant “technicolor” in tones of gray in the same image as seen from its initial proposals as Sad Cello or Flying Minds (that youn can see in this article) belonging to the series “Morning lonelyness”.
Yashaimages of whom can be also very sensual as in Together (that youn can see in this article), often accompany his works with prose or poetry or song lyrics: is a way that many other artists use to make it even better feeling that they tried to recreate with their work and I personally find this technique very attractive and to give greater “depth” to the images of the graphic dreamer. In any case see works such as Breakfast or Perfect or Against the Wall II (that reminds me of certain Pompeian frescoes) worth alone the definition of artistic works for both the accuracy with which they are made and the ability to mix techniques and themes derived from “major arts” such as painting, sculpture or photography. The same applies to landscapes as Into the Pink Dust, The Bridge of Sights or Fu Touristic.
Sometimes the works of Yasha are directly inspired by a text or a song as in Colour (that youn can see in this article), some others refer directly to the concept of reading as a source of learning as in The Reader I but alongside the idea of life itself as best teacher (proped in The Reader II). In all cases the relationship between the image and the text seems to me to live in Yasha so that some of his works make me think of famous novels, even when not directly mention: The tales of the fishermann for example, brings to mind The Old Man and the Sea, while Fight against the Titans Fight I concur with some youthful adventures of Harry Potter. By the way, it seems to me that Yasha's works deserves to be called a dream and I think that you should keep a constant eye, maybe following this column even in Facebook giving your "like" to our group.
