Art and private moments in Second Life

Inara views the Lovegasm exhibit:

Inara Pey: Living in a Modem World

Lovegasm - Mr. S (as selected by Mrs. S)Lovegasm – Mr. S (as selected by Mrs. S)

Now open at Max Butoh’s marvellous Dathúil gallery, beautifully curated by Lυcy (LucyDiam0nd), is the August exhibition.  Lovegasm features the combined work of Mr and Mrs. S – otherwise known as Saka Infinity and Laura (LauraLar). It is one which continues to mark this venue as one of the more fascinating in Second Life for the range and depth of art displayed within its walls.

The easiest way to describe the exhibition is to quote from the opening of the introductory note which can be obtained at the gallery’s entrance:

What happens when two picture lovers meet?  When art meets love, when love inspires each other, it drives them to Lovegasm.

Lovegasm - Mrs. S, as selected by Mr. SLovegasm – Mrs. S, as selected by Mr. S

The result is a series of his-and-her images reflecting the relationship between the two, and sometimes as it intersects with others…

Tristan und Isolde

Giovanna Cerise’s new exhibit opens today at 1:30 pm slt!

The Bergdorf Reports

2Giovanna Cerise’s new exhibit Tristan und Isolde at Italian Verse opens tomorrow, July 15, 2015 at 1:30 PM. This breathtaking show is of course inspired by the opera with the same name in three acts by composer Richard Wagner. Giovanna quotes in a notecard available at the landing a short passage from a letter from Wagner to Franz List from 1854 where Wagner states that [a]s I have never in life felt the real bliss of love, I must erect a monument to the most beautiful of all my dreams, in which, from beginning to end, that love shall be thoroughly satiated. And this is certainly the sentiment that is represented by this work, a majestic build in dreamy blue and white hues. Some of the blue areas are transparent, lending the viewer an impression of large precious stones. There is music by Wagner available here as well, simply turn…

Exploring beautiful Baby’s Ear in Second Life

Inara explores Baby’s Ear, a great photogenic place to explore!

Baby’s Ear is the name of Neva Crystall’s latest region design in Second Life – and it is an absolute must see.

Comprising two islands, Baby’s Ear is a treasure to behold; a place which is at once unique to Second Life, yet at the same time the various elements within it can resonate with the visitor in such a way that a slight feeling of deja-vu is felt; a feeling that perhaps there is somewhere like this in the physical world that we might have visited.

The larger of the two islands brings together a number of motifs, which stand both individually and as a collective whole. The farm sitting atop the central plateau could easily have been lifted…

A little time with Bob Dylan in Second Life

Inara explores the new Bob Dylan inspired exhibition at The Broad Street Gallery.

Inara Pey: Living in a Modem World

Not Dark Yet, Crestwick Gallery Not Dark Yet, The Broad Street Gallery, Crestwick Island

Now open at the Broad Street Gallery, Crestwick Island, is a new exhibition entitled Not Dark Yet. Bob Dylan fans may recognise this as the title of his 1997 single, the first released from his Time Out of Mind album.

This is no coincidence; Not Dark Yet is a collaborative exhibition of art inspired by Dylan’s lyrics. The idea came from the gallery’s curator, photographer (and Crestwick Island’s co-designer) Isa Messioptra. She invited artists Cipherscape, Doc, .kiki, Senna Coronet, Dantelicia Ethaniel, Harbor Galaxy, Edie Horngold, Amona Savira, Hillany Scofield, and Maloe Vansant to join her in presenting one image apiece interpreting lyrics from one of Dylan’s songs.
