FigureGlyph

The human figure has been represented in art for centuries through sculpture, portraits, prints, paintings, music, dance, film, and poetry. The rise of art as NFTs has remixed the old corporate art stations, and many creatives have come out of those verticals with discipline and mastery of skill; and, more importantly, with new-found inspiration on familiar themes like the figure.

SearchLight invited artists minting on the blockchain to submit an original work of art exploring the figure by incorporating typography, text, and visual poetry – in reference to, as a part of, or integrated into representations of the body. Additionally, artists could submit figurative works without text-related elements. Works were also selected from the collection of @DCInvestor, and the platforms Async and Mint Gold Dust.

Select artworks from the exhibition will be showcased on the first night of NFT.NYC in Times Square on June 19, 2022, and through an augmented reality experience in the same location. 

Temporal Visions

Temporal Vision explores the permanent qualities of NFTs versus the fleeting, temporary ways in which they are viewed. While NFT art is forever stored on the blockchain and distributed file storage systems, the viewing experience is usually quite brief for a number of reasons. Among these are the modes of display. NFTs can be viewed on screens in galleries like physical art, but can also be viewed on phones, on computers, in VR and AR, and on social media; mediums that by their nature are fleeting and impermanent. Museums, by comparison, offer their audiences time to savor the work on display, which is an inherent part of the experience. NFT images, unlike physical art, live in the ether, and are consumed repeatedly and instantaneously. Curiously, although quite opposite in this regard, they are both essentially repositories of the culture in perpetuity.


-Joyce Korotkin, Artist & Curator

Domance

Domance is the World's first 360 immersive NFT Dome exhibition located in the Domelandia Metaverse in Altspace VR. Over 65 Artists, Poets, DJs, and  VJs minting on the blockchain, will be showcased from February 13-28, 2022.

 

The show will take viewers on a journey through three domes – from the peaceful innocence of the dawn of first love, through the all-consuming passion that ensues, and into the ever-deepening journey that brings one back to the source.

Over 65 artists minting on the blockchain are represented in the DOMANCE Exhibition.

SKINSEQ

 Suki Violet + Niuhuro

"The face is our metaphysical window that manifests our emotions to the universe. New sequences of our consciousness are constantly being printed through digital avatars. We skin these avatars with our own meta-personalities and populate a new metaverse. Our digital and physical faces are forming a sequential reality."  - Suki

SearchLight.Art is pleased to launch the first NFTs from The Sequence of Skin or SKINSEQ by artist Suki Violet. Each NFT will be accompanied by a 1-of-1 limited edition physical work that reflects the collected NFT.

 

For this collection, Suki Violet draws her underlying inspiration from animism, Eastern myths, classical totems, and neo-futurist lifestyles. She uses human facial contours as the primary canvas to express the beautiful synergy of traditional painting, 3D modeling, and particle dynamics algorithms.

 

The visual style in this first set is inspired by the collaboration with make-up artist Niuhuro.
