Art in Second Life 2020 (48) Ambre Singh Gallery

I got a private message in Second Life from a reader after publishing my posts about “Bouquets and Flowers” by Colm Midnight at Noir’Wen City Gallery, ars amandi art gallery and Noir’Wen City itself. The reader recommended to visit Ambre Singh Gallery. Ambre Singh is a member of the Noir’Wen City team – and as I learned she has her own fan club. The above mentioned reader is a moderator in this fan club.

I went visiting Ambre Singh Gallery on Wednesday, July 1st, and I did not regret it.

Ambre Singh Gallery – Ground floor with current works

Ambre Singh is in Second Life for over 13 years. She writes about herself:
“‘It is your mind that creates this world’, said Buddha.
All you do in SL will subtlely change you and others in all worlds. So in my life and art, I thrive to add my spice, beauty and love.
I photograph people of character in beautiful places of SL or in studio. Sometimes, I create thematic images in SL, or I mix worlds… If the harvest is good, I make an exhibition.
Colorful or discrete, tender or erotic, my photos try to express the life and the soul of the people and places.

The Ambre Singh Gallery consists of several parts, a main floor with her current works, a second floor with her views on classical art and religion, a third floor with art from other artists, and a seperate room, where you can rezz other themed pictures or installations from Ambre Singh. There should be also an extra room with a permanent exhibition “Rumi in 100 illustrations”, dedicated to the “great mystic Rumi (I have no idea who that is, maybe the Persian poet who lived in the 13th century?). I didn’t find this room, it might have been temporarily closed when I visited Ambre Singh Gallery.

I first visited the main floor. The pictures there are mostly from the last 2 years and show quite a variety some are quite erotic, others show Ambre’s sense of humour.
I spent most of my time at Ambre Singh Gallery at the room where you can rezz different themed pictures or installations. Four rooms contain portraits, which seems to be one of Ambre’s passions.

Ambre Singh Gallery – Portraits

I saw illustrated quotes, a picture story named “The Tennis Match” and an installation named “The Heat Wave” where I could place myself in – coincidentally I was dressed perfect for it in my opinion *winks*

I furtheron saw the installation named “Nun of your Business”, which I really liked – funny and erotic.

I also saw portraits and pictures of Amber herself – taken by other photographers. Ambre likes to be a model herself. To be honest, I like doing that also quite obviously.

There are more installations but I didn’t see them (yet!):
Jade Termple, The Lustiver Travels, The Art of Bliss, Bad crash on alien world, The chocorgy Room, 7 Deadly Sins, Anachronisms – Ambre’s early SL works, Movie posters pastiched by Ambre, Musical Quiz, What Tits this? An ode to breasts

I finished my first visit to Ambre Singh Gallery with the second floor, that shows her views on classical art and religion. When you look at these pictures from far away, you seem to be in a museum for classic art – if you take a closer look, then you see either manipulated classic pictures like the renowned Mona Lisa or you see pictures taken within Second Life, but looking like classic art or a mixture of these two. You shouldn’t miss a look at the second floor!

Ambre Singh runs her own website with a lot more information. And she also has a flickr account.

Thank you Ambre for your work. I’m glad that I got the hint from your fan club. I enjoyed my visit!
