Artin Second Life 2021 (95) JudiLynn Gallery at Virtual Chelsea Hotel

During my last visit to La Maison d’Aneli seeing the second part of the Summer 21 exhibtion (read here), I came across the artist JudiLynn India. Judy has her own JudiLynn Gallery at Virtual Chelsea Hotel. I visited it on Wednesday, September 22nd.

JudiLynn Gallery at Virtual Chelsea (1) – outside, 1st floor, stamp collection

The JudiLynn Gallery extends over three stories basement, 1st and 2nd floor. On the 1st floor, Judi presents a stamp collection she has created in 2019 in oil pastel, ink and digital textures. These are colourful abstract paintings, that shine at some spots and leave room to see in them different things depending on your mood.
Also on the 1st floor is a series of 6 paintings in black and white from 2019, abstract, a bit reminding of the structure of marble. The series is called “unique”, expressing that ach of them is unique and has a pattern you’d find nowhere else. Finally right by the stairs leading to the basement are two paintings from 2018, both made of several layers. On a frist glance they look just abstract, on a second glance you notice more and more the other layers and being to see different things.

The 2nd floor is dedicated to JudiLynns art from 2012. Even more colourful abstract paintings showing different, irregular patterns. These paintings convince with their colourfulness, some did remind me of eruptions of paint. For sure any of these could decorate and dominate a living room.

The basement is reserved for JudiLynn’s newer artwork. Some of it was shown at La Maison d’Aneli (read here). Judi categorized them into harmony, equilibrium, balance and symmetry. Again her style is recognizable immediately by the use of colour and abstract patterns, partly mirrored vertically or horizontally. But behind or through the abstract paintings the spectator can recognize something else, be it a face, a person, a building or whatever.

Judi Lynn studied art throughout school, Commercial Art in high school and Graphic Design at Tyler School of Art/Temple University in Philadelphia, PA. After the turn of the century, she decided to focus her creativity on acrylic and digital painting. Known in Second Life since 2009 as JudiLynn India and RL as Judi Lynn, her mission is to share her vision and message as an artist with the global community: “My work embodies my spirit and personality. My goal is to allow you to experience the image with your own mind’s eye. My work is entirely intuitive. I get lost in the layering of texture and color. Occasionally, I will include figurative work if my spirit is so presented with the composition. Just as there is order in the chaos of the universe, the energy within me is brought into focus one canvas at a time.” (taken from a text by JudiLynn India)

Besides the JudiLynn Gallery, Judi has a website for purchase of prints:
You can also find a list of her current exhibition in own and other galleries in her profile in Second Life.
