Windlight Magazine’s Art Critic & Gallery Reviewer, Oema, reviews the new exhibition on LEA 29:
LEA29 is hosting a wonderful artistic installation about a fascinating and a little known theme, the passage to the tithe dimension.
I have had the pleasure to go through the various “doors of the awareness“, living this experience with the due lightness.
At the landing point of LEA29 there is a synthetic presentation of the same artistic installation.
Nothing is explained regarding the tenth dimension and even regarding thing to expect from this virtual experience.
The reason is evident: to leave to the observer the pleasure to dive to the 3d reality which looks both surreal that captivating.
It’s notable the ability of Tansee, the author, to create objects 3D and to animate them entirely in an unique way.
Oema reviews the art of Maddy (Magda Schmidtzau):
I know by chance Maddy (Magda Schmidtzau), she invites me on FB to an event related to the inauguration of her photographic show entertained by Diotima (Lilies Waves).
It says that the first impression is that one counts, I believe it’s true.
Just entranced, her photos strikes me since immediately.
Windlight Art Critic and Gallery Reviewer, Oema, reviews the latest exhibition at The Living Room:
Magnificent. There are no other words to describe the photographic exhibition of BluesRocker and Eleseren Brianna hosted by Living Room.

Windlight Art Critic & Gallery Reviewer, Oema recaps her visit to Skip Staheli’s closing party at The Living Room:
And here I am again return to the Living Room to talk about a very interesting artist, Skip Staheli.
Oema reviews the new Jammie Hill and Joslyn Benson Exhibition:
Very interesting artistic exposition of which I wish to speak is set in these days to “DaphneArts Gallery”, the Gallery founded by SheldonBr and Angelika Corral and which has the advantage of hosting artists who normally do not have other exposures in progress, but they are worthy to exhibit their works.
The artists exhibiting in the months of March-April are Jammie Hill and Joslyn Benson and the works are photographic character.
Windlight Magazine Art Critic, Oema, explores Barry Richez’s new exhibit at LEA 6:
There are places in Second Life straight out of a comic book and set in a 3d environment.
This is especially true for the extraordinary performance staged by Barry Richez at LEA6 and I invite you to visit.
Oema reviews The Good Days Gallery:
I went to visit it intrigued by the images shared on Facebook in order to promote it.
The art exhibition is both 2d and 3d, in fact the gallery is “inhabited” by various stylized statues depicting women’s bodies.
Oema reviews the new exhibition at Nitroglobus Hall:
The protagonists of the exhibition “Shadows of dream” hosted by Dido Petra Haas at Nitroglobus Hall are Angelika Corral and SheldonBr.
We’re going to know them better through a brief presentation of both.
Windlight would like to welcome Oema Resident in the role of art critic and gallery reviewer for Windlight Magazine! Oema, who is Italian, will also give us reports on Italian themed art events. You can learn more about Oema, by reading her official biography below:
“In real life I am a lawyer, so I deal every day with arguments very different from art.
Since I was very small I have learned to draw, thanks to the teachings of my mother, cultured and refined woman, lover of the art, of the history and of the philosophy.
The art, however, since 6 years has become an essential part of my life.
I learned to use Photoshop during a long period of physical discomfort, which forced me do not being able to move from home. During this forced seclusion, mind flew where the body was not able to get there … I had the need to vacate it, somehow. So I decided to work on the images learning to use Photoshop. Before I bought a book to learn more about this extraordinary graphics program and then another one in America about Digital Art with Photoshop. Art has always a cathartic effect on me. The sense that I attribute to art is a way to look at reality. A photo is a reproduction as faithful as possible to the real, art is the way I see the real through my eyes, or rather, through my heart. Art is, therefore, a very intimate way of expression, in sense that through it the observer undertakes a journey into my inner world. This trip can finish in two ways:
✔ Touch the strings of the soul of the observer;
✔ The observer doesn’t like it.
The art is so, is not universally beautiful, even when it pleases a large number of people, does not mean that everyone likes. Later I started to carry out the activities of Art Curator for two large communities: Mediterranean-Oc Community and East River. I have personally set up several exhibitions, made machinima video to present the artists.
I also opened a blog about art in Second Life (Drops of Art) and founded a large group about Art on Facebook in order to share and promote artistic events.
