Simploring 2019 (108) La Maison d’Aneli – November 2019

The newest joined exhibition at La Maison d’Aneli was opened on Wednesday, October 30th. This time Aneli (Aneli Abeyante) features the art of Beertje Beaumont, IndigoClaire, Norton Lykin, Gitu Aura, Lala Lightfoot, Senka Beck and Treacle Darlandes.

Once again I visited the exhibtion before the official opening as it fitted better into my plans. I started with a visit to ” La Serre” : Undiscovered Planet, created by Treacle Darlandes. It is a 3D art installation filling one room. You enter a purple fantasy world. The sky is glowing in orange, the trees have glowing yeallow and red leaves (like in Autum), the flower glow and a butterfly brightens up the scenery. The background is sharp and edgy – an undiscovered planet.
Treacle Darlandes is from the UK. She joined Second Life over 13 years ago and is engaged in assistance for new residents, depression support, an over-40 group and other things – like art. She enjoys creating art in Second Life to relax and loves colour and movement. She likes to feel immersed in her art, and hopes that others like it too. I felt attracted by Treacle’s undiscovered planet.

Right when you enter La Maison d’Aneli the first area is occupied by Lala Lightfoot’s art. Lala has been creating art all her life and has been influenced by the colors, pattern and shapes in nature and the amazing works of great artists. She loves putting these elements together in different ways to create art that is entertaining, thoughtful and fun.
Lala Lightfoot is an art educator from the US. She’s in Second Life for over 12 years and is known as a painter favoring watercolors, acrylics and mixed media. I personally think that her style is unique.

Beertje Beaumont is an artist in RL and a jeweler in SL. She’s in Second Life for almost 13 years. Considering her name I suspect that she’s Dutch.
At La Maison d’Aneli she shows her first paintings. She used acryl paint with a coarse bottom layer of sand and gesso, to have a special effect. The corner with Beertje’s paintings has dark walls and thus the colours of her paintings look stronger. The paintings have complex structures that makes them intriguing the longer you look at them. I like how Beertje’s corner at La Maison d’Aneli is decorated not only with the little meeting area in the middle next to a piano but also with glass sphere suspended from the ceiling.

Indigo (IndigoClaire) is from the Czech Republic city of Prague. She joined Second Life about 9 years ago and had already several art projects and exhibtionsin SL. At La Maison d’Aneli she created a room all in white with a box in the center and big artful pictures at the walls. I think all the pictures were taken in Second Life and processed with special effects like blurring some parts. The whole compostion of the geometry, some colourful spheres on the floor and the pictures which are seen from different angles is very interesting and invites you stay a while.

Gitu Aura, another artist who is in Second Life for already almost 10 years called her corner of the exhibtion at La Maison d’Aneli “Embrace my dreams”. She says about herself: “Art is very important to me, I can’t live without it. It’s like a passion for me, the motor which drives me, my reason for being and never staying at the same point. I love to create and share it with people.
Photography is one of my favorite hobbies, what awakens my soul…I just adore to sit and listen to music while I am relaxed and my phantasy fly in the Photoshop. Is the process I never know how will finish, that’s the magic of the moment and creativity…and I am always happy to share what I did create, as Art should speak itself…as the silent poetry..the moment to feel…

Senka Beck is another SL veteran with far over 12 years. She sees SL as her playground where she enjoys interacting with peeps and prims, where she captures and releases her inner being.
The work presented here at La Maison d’Aneli is titled Detoxomania, Reboot. It is a combination of different forms of art, a light installation, that covers all walls, the floor and the ceiling. Senka plays with effects and with sound and the pictures at the walls look technical, something like circuits, fractals and other geometric forms and they change their colour and hence the impressions of them. Get immersed!

Finally I visited the room with the art from Norton Lykin. Norton is with over 12 years also a SL veteran. He’s living in Denmark and took up his art activities after his retirement as a system programmer. He sees life as a journey “The ideas we have and the history we tell. Reality is not a scientific truth but as we understand it in every given moment.
His pictures at La Maison d’Aneli work with shadows, colours and shades: Everybody will see different stories or objects in them and that is Norton’s intention.

La Maison d’Aneli is owned by Aneli Abeyante. Through her gallery she brings together all forms of creativity in RL and SL and the featured artists come from around the globe. Aneli’s intention is to “put her gallery in the service of artists, so that the world can be better, exchanges and meetings probably contribute even though it seems to be particles.
Thank you Aneli for another great exhibition and thank you to all artists. The current exhibition should be open until End of November 2019. Enjoy your visit, if you go there yourself.
