Art in Second Life 2020 (3) La Maison d’Aneli January/February 2020

Yesterday, Wednesday, January 22nd, La Maison d’Aneli had the opening of another joined exhibition of several artists. Aneli Abeyante features Quadrapop Lane at “La Serre” and Adwehe, Anadonne, DekabristMouse, Kara Mellow, Eylinea and her own art at the main gallery. Once again I visited the exhibition before the official opening, as I couldn’t attend the opening itself.
The exhibition will stay opened until February 18th.

I started my tour in the main gallery with the art of Eylinea. She quite new to Second Life and explores for herself a broad variety of artistic possibilities in Second Life: painting, photography, sculpture and even soon tattoo creation. At La Maison d’Aneli she shows some permanently changing geometrical displays that reminded me of Spirograph

Violaine (anadonne) is in Second Life for 3 years now. Her pictures at La Maison d’Aneli are mostly abstract. Some of them look like maps coloured in different tones of one colour, in other pictures you recognize parts of human bodies. Violaine’s pictures are displayed in groups that belong to one theme each.

Mouse (dekabristmouse), a russian art student likes furry, space and fallout themes. He runs a shop for space, ground and water vehicles and for furry mods. At his corner at La Maison d’Aneli he displays drawing of furries and fantasy arts with characters created by himself. One wall shows drawings in black and white, one wall shows coloured drawings.

Aneli Abeyante, who runs La Maison d’Aneli, has her own corner in the exhibtion this time again. Aneli creates objects in 2D and 3D, colourful, steadily moving, and with particular light effects. Aneli writes about herself:
I love geometry and mathematics. So after much practice, I managed to clear structures and shapes. In reality I practice painting, I do not have precise style but I always seek harmonization.
At her corner we see geometrical shapes with blue as the dominating colour. Most of the displays as constantly changing, my pictures are just snapshots.

At La Maison d’Aneli Kara Mellow presents his art around the themes “Brain” and “Pink, the new Black”. The notecard with the artist biography reads as follows:
Kara Mellow is considered one of the greatest truglucists of all time. He creates beautiful emptiness out of ugly plenitude. As a confessed Obliviousonist he likes cheese in words and he hates Siri. The latency of this love-hate binomial is more than evident in his work yet to be done, like “March”, Mellow’s favorite month and, at same time, his second most hated synced motion.

His art is quite intriguing and he likes to provoke and to exaggerate. I like in particular his “Petflix” corner where you can kneel down for binge watching the void.

Adwehe is quite new in Second Life. At La Maison d’Aneli Adwehe created a room mainly filled with 3D objects in different geometrical forms. You can climb up on them or sit on spheres and become part the art yourself. At the walls some pictures are displayed. Adwehe seems to like ladders.

I ended my visit at La Maison d’Aneli visiting the seperate art space “La Serre” which features Quadrapop Lane.
Quadrapop has been building in Second Life since 2007. In RL Quadrapop has a background in Art History and Graphic Design and is a mixed media artist.
Fascinated by the possibilities that virtual creation provides for the artist, Quadrapop focused on those aspects that are least like physical real life. Utilising phantom prims, alpha textures, one way transparency, flexible prims, lack of gravity, and the lighting and surface effects created by projected lights when combined with normal and specular layers, quadrapop creates contemplative abstractions that are not possible (or very difficult/costly) to create in RL.

You enter a colourful space filled with light. I had the impression of being in the control room of a spaceship. Everywhere you look you see different colours, different objects. Quadrapop plays with light and effects and with the transparancy of phantom objects. There’re two levels at “La Serre” connected by a spiral staircase. And there’s a teleport pad that leads you to a labyrinth made of transperent coloured walls and surrounded by something that could be the space – or just abstract art. It was fun exploring and experiencing it.

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 runs until February 18th. Enjoy your visit, if you go there yourself.
