Meet the Windlight Art Gallery Fellows: Catalina Staheli & Keegan Kavanagh!

Today’s Windlight Art Gallery Fellows spotlights are on Catalina Staheli & Keegan Kavanagh:

Catalina Staheli:

catalina-staheli-close-up

Catalina Staheli has been a Second Life Resident since May 18, 2007, and an avid photographer for the past several years. Always pushing herself to learn and grow, she’s enjoyed every second of her journey as a budding photographer and it has paved the way for her interests in modeling and designing, though photography remains her happiest joy.

Catalina is the designer behind the brand [ Aleutia ], an explorer of role play sims when there’s time, and a long time supporter of Relay For Life. In her first life, Cata can be found living above the Arctic Circle in remote northern Alaska, where she works as a Special Education teacher in a native Iñupiat village. She is also pursuing her PhD in Curriculum & Instruction.

==================================================================

Keegan Kavanagh:

keegan_001

I’ve been in SecondLife since 2009. I’ve tried everything from DJing, modeling, video & media rentals and tech support and club owning. I tinkered with photography on and off throughout the years.

It wasn’t until I began making my own poses, that I really threw myself into the art. I found myself quickly becoming addicted to my work and I fell in love with it. I find myself telling stories through my poses and photography and I’m excited to be able to share some of that with you.

-Keegan

I make many of the poses for my pictures. Please see a link below to my marketplace listings as well as my Flickr.

Thank you!

Meet the Windlight Art Gallery Fellows: Kacey Macbeth & SuperVac (Dante) Parabola

We would like to highlight some of our awesome artists at the Windlight Art Gallery! Today’s spotlights are on Kacey Macbeth & SuperVac (Dante) Parabola:

kaceyprofile.png
Kacey Macbeth

Kacey Macbeth, a native from Wisconsin, is a self taught, multidisciplinary artist who’s work is influenced by the wilds of Wyoming, the north woods of Wisconsin and the majestic pines of South Carolina.

Her connection to the pristine and raw beauty of nature has greatly influenced her style and vision which tell the stories of love, happiness, peace and even sorrow.

Kacey’s work has previously premiered in galleries at Art in the Park and La Galerie.

She is influenced by impressionists artist Monet, Cezanne and Renoir,

========================================================

Dante's Bio Photo.png
SuperVac (Dante) Parabola

I am not an artist by trade. My education is primarily in theoretical physics (quantum cosmology) and higher education. However, while pursuing dual PhDs, I learned to enjoy and appreciate the communicative nature of cinematography and photography. While studying digital media at University, I pursued various interests including:

–Photographic manipulation and editing (digital and film)
–Three-dimensional modelling using Blender and similar software
–NLE
–Photographic and virtual composition
–DSLR and full frame photography
–Stage lighting

Throughout all my experiences, I found contemporary art echoed Dr. Snout’s realisation about humanity:

“We don’t want to conquer space at all… We don’t want other worlds; we want a mirror. We seek contact and will never achieve it. We are in the foolish position of a man striving for a goal he fears and doesn’t want. Man needs man!” (Lem, 1961)

Recently, digital photography has fallen to the selfie, movies have abandoned stories and oral tradition as to opt for degenerate character driven pseudostorylines, and cheap cinematography fitting a lethargic industry. Film has eroded into entertainment for the masses; all for the sake of profit and prestige. And worse yet, it all focuses on appeasing the Self with little more than a recasting or distorted reflection of the Self; offering the audience little more than the comfort of what they already know.

Thus, this leads to my philosophy regarding art and the future struggle it faces. Art can offer an intersubjective gift allowing the embodiment of alien and foreign concepts and experiences. However, contemporary artists seem fascinated with the re-representation of the human form and the Self. The next step in the arts is to overcome such self-obsession. Of all the arts, I believe photography has the greatest chance of success while leading to new explorations and understandings disallowed by remaining trapped within the Self.

This is why you rarely (if ever) see people in my work. Although most composition classes emphasise the role of the person in telling a story, such a practice is little more than Dr. Snout’s warning. I do not wish for my art to imprison me in a reflective mirror—forever condemning me to examine myself as the means of understanding. My attempts at art represent the trials to free myself from Snout’s Mirror.

Although my perspective may seem cynical, it grew from an appreciation of Kubrick’s and Tarkovsky’s works offering humanity a glimpse into distant understandings of existence and efforts at communication. Their works tried to teach an audience how to bridge the infinite distance between the Self and something utterly foreign/alien to the Self. Such an objective is the hallmark of brilliant cinematography and utter genius which has been recently forgotten. I can only hope to offer a fraction of what they have, in some form.

Meet the Windlight Art Gallery Fellows: Ninaporras Resident & Bentleyclaire Resident!

The November & December Exhibition at Windlight Art Gallery closes in a few days. We are featuring the artists who are exhibiting at the gallery! Today’s features are on Ninaporras Resident & Bentleyclaire Resident:

1510p_1024pe-art-of-nina-porrasSL NAME: NinaPorras

BIOGRAPHY:
I am in CGI-art since 10 years, because – don’t laugh – I cannot draw. I am using Poser and Photoshop. Before I tripped over Poser, I wrote erotic stories. But for one story I need months, many months (me, a perfectionist German!), while for a picture I need a day or two. So it was a great discovery for myself and a challenge, this software, with which I could give my fantasy pictures: Poser.

I like erotic art, showing the best of human, the nude body – even in men. My pictures are like water; those of the great geniuses are wine. (Fortunately) everybody drinks water. Everybody except the morons, likes erotic art. If you want see more not G-rated art, visit my gallery on SL.

In 2012 I suffered an accident and lost my left leg. I began picturing handicapped people, part of my self-therapy to overcome my loss. But showing erotic pictures of disabled people is not always welcome in the world of “abled” and two-leggers. Not understood well that even handicapped are sexual beings, with the same desires, wishes and carving for lust and love as the so-called “abled”. By the way, I don’t know any abled without a disability.

When I started on Renderosity with my first picture of a one-legged woman, I just got flamed by its bigot censors, not getting the beauty of imperfectness and refusing human rights for disabled persons. They have not the faintest idea about disability and are in lack of any tolerance. They took disability like something obscene, bothering “healthy people” like bare breasts or genitals. They don’t like get pestered by the view of an imperfect body, which could remind them to their own vulnerability and mortality.
These poor people never will get that true beauty lies in imperfectness and in a strange way a missing limb can make an advancement. Therefore I left some places of internet, when I got stupid comments, pointing me crazy or mad.

Finally I found the right place for my art: It is HERE, on Second Life Here I am among friends, who appreciate my art. Visit my gallery on Crystal Haven, where I exchange the pictures regularly.
Let me close with Mark Twain: “The best way to cheer yourself up is to try to cheer somebody else up.” Promised, I’ll try with my art.

Of course, feedback is always welcome, it makes my creativity speeding up.

bentleyclairecloseupSL NAME:  bentleyclaire

BIOGRAPHY:
I have always had a passion for pretty things and captivating photos. I came to Second Life and was instantly wowed by the the graphical beauty of it. The possibilities are seemingly endless. There is so much beauty to be found in SL. I try to capture as much of it as I can. I find my style improves and changes with every photo I take. It’s easy to find beauty in every place and situation. My goal is to share that beauty with as many people as I can. I spend my time in SL taking photos and spending time with my family and friends. Building and maintaining those relationships are very important to me.
