The special video below features images from Jaily Bailey, Resmay Bloodstorm, Ruby Ornamental, Judelin Resident, Euridice Qork, Wicca Merlin, Onix Noir, and Eleseren Brianna:
Currently on display at DiXmix Gallery, is a selection of thirteen images by Isa Messioptra brought together under the title Cerebral Frame. Taken over the last year or so, the collection comprises both colour and monochrome images spread across the main and mezzanine floors of the gallery, mixing nude studies, examinations of human emotion and moments caught in time.
These are striking pieces – all of which are offered for sale by the artist – each one coming across as a scene from a much larger canvas or story. However, it is left to our imaginations to paint that larger canvas with a narrative sparked by each of the scenes we are witnessing, and so frame them.
FrameNor is the narrative necessarily individual to each of the pieces display. For example, displayed on the mezzanine level are four monochrome images – In The Eve, Fragrance and Thank You For The Funky Time at the top of the stairs, and Heirloom, slightly separated from them – which together suggest a common narrative might flow between them, as if each is a paragraph or chapter of an unfolding story….

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.
