Nude or Not…That is the Question…

The Edge Contributor, Stavaros Gracemount discusses whether or not one should use nudity in their artwork:

Nude or Not… That is the question…

There are many people with varying opinions on nudity and art. There is a fine line that is tread between the two. After attending several meetings and reading several other articles, I’m left somewhat disappointed with the lack of open-minded people within Second Life.

There are those that claim to be cutting edge, when I have discovered they are more into covering edge. What I mean by my statement is,  as some appear to be fashion forward in their thinking, they are not. They are the ones that hold back the industry from getting any new blood.

The Edge Artist Spotlight: Tiviyah Resident and Ramsa Luv

Today’s Edge Gallery spotlights are on Tiviyah REsident and Ramsa Luv:

Tivi Inglewood - Hide And Seek
Tiviyah Resident

BIOGRAPHY:
Tivi Inglewood (Tiviyah Resident) has been taking photos since she had a decent enough graphics card to not crash trying to go above a “Low” setting. While her earlier pictures are quite cringe-worthy to her now, she’d like to think that with time and determination, she’s improved to the point that she’s been humbled by this Exhibition in The Edge Gallery, her first forray into photography as more than just “blog photos”. Her blog photos have always been more artistic than just basic style cards, and she is incredibly appreciative of what John, Eles, and Windlight have built here, to bring fashion imagery closer to the art side of the world, and to let us dip our toes in.
