For a strange reason people often more focus on that what they lose insteast of that what they win. I often hear people complain that so many artists and gallerists left, I never hear compliments of those who are new on the scene. I think for some artists thevirtual techniques are loosing their attraction after a while or RL changes and time is limeted. We have to live with constant changes and I sure you find in theiy post places or artists you never heard about before. Enjoy!
Ini Inaka: Long way down
This photo artist is the second time guest in the Nitroglobus gallery for a good reason. Her images are always of a great sensitivity, mirroring many emotions and make us feel strange and familiar at the same time. All mesh sculptures shown in the main hall were made by the gallery owner, the artist Nitro Fireguard.
I like themed exhibitions. They bring artists together , which habe not much in common and inspire artists to works they probably never have thought of themselves. Gallerists Holterand Wayne asked for pink. Ok, Fuschia Nightfire is more or less a must with the theme, but also the others are worth to be seen: Awesome Fallen, Bianca Xavorin, ByrneDarkley Cazalet, Tomais Ashdene and Ziki Questi
Oil versus Glas
For a while I follow the work of Uleria Caramel. Her exhitbition Oil versus Glas in the newly opened Timeless Grace Art Gallery is beautiful and ist is interesting to hear about the techniques she used. I just miss that she includes the possibilities of virtual art in her work. Of course it is possible to upload RL works to have a platform for a multinational audience, but SL offers artists so much more. And as you see with the oil paintings above. SL never can reflect the surface of an oilpainting. But the show is worth to see as well as the other displayed artists: Aurora Mycano and Kandece Weißbrod.
Every time I see a new artist in Second Life I am happy and hope that he/she gets caught by the virtual art. Here is a new RL artist exhibtiting the first time in Second Life: Albo Artist, painter in real life as well as a teacher of art. Born in France from an Albanian family, he lived and studied in Italy before moving to the US where he continued to study art and education obtaining a Master of Fine Arts in New York. All paintings exhibited by him on SL are his real life paintings.
Let us give him a warm welcome and to wish him a long, productive virtual life :)
Next week the Gallery Shop will come after the closure of the wonderful exhibtion of Lilia Artis and Moeuhane Sandalwood back to live. They had to refill a lot of holes in the walls and let's hope that the stucco is drying on time ;)
In the meantime opened new exhibtions at Aakriti Arts with ChapTer Kronfeld, Creativesam India, Spiral Silverstar and Toysoldier Thor. All are very talented artists but I must admit that I especially fell in love with the anumated fractals by Spiral. But the works of all artists should be seen!
