Blackfyr McBride @ Nectaris Arts
Many gallery owners shy away from new artists, knowing that it's artists with big names that bring in traffic and sales, but not Talamasca. She says "I had a new player approach me and ask about a show - I used to curate a place that existed to help new artists in SL, so it's something I like doing."
Blackfyr: "It's mostly the same process with all of them. I start with a digital photo in Photoshop and make multiple layers which I then run through filters, overlaying them on the other layers and play with the interactions of the layers until I get something I like."
Blackfyr has a website called Broken Hexagon, where there is info about her and her art, but like many of us SL artists, we've found something to be gained by exhibiting in this virtual world. For Blackfyr it was "People interested in creating. My website pretty much just sits there in cyberspace getting lost in the morass of crud, whereas SL has a built in population of people who either like to create or like looking at other people's creations - or both."
So if you're one of those people interested in creating, this new artist would love your feedback, and friendship! Stop by and see her work today at Nectaris! http://slurl.com/secondlife/Riiki/126/45/33
