Through the use of 3D rendering software, LaTurbo introduces a techno-mythological return to Titian's Bacchus and Ariadne--a formative allegorical painting created 500 years before they existed. Through this simulation of the painted image, the viewer is invited into a drifting and contemplative revision of its contents. A mirror from the present to the past, the work sits squarely in the artist’s practice rooted by metaverse phenomenology.
LaTurbo Avedon is an avatar and artist, creating work that emphasizes the practice of non-physical identity and authorship. Avedon has spent the past decade developing a body of work that illuminates the ever-growing intensity between users and virtual experiences, pursuing creative environments that deepen the meaning of memories found in the metaverse. They curate and design Panther Modern, a file-based exhibition space that encourages artists to create site-specific installations for the Internet.
