Art in Second Life 2021 (108) The End of Innocence by Meilo Minotaur

I visited the exhibition “The End of Innocence” by Meilo Minotaur at DixMix Gallery in room Amalfia. The exhibition consists of about 12 pictures, which are based on SL pictures, I think at least.

I have come across Meilo Minotaur twice so far. Meilo is in Second Life since 2008 and she owns and a homestead named “Delicatessen” where she has different installations for about 10 years now. I visited “Delicatessen” in 2019 (read here).

Then I saw a piece of her art at the exhibition “Sinners and Saints” this year in August (read here). The piece she contributed was a 3D object of three angels, angels like the one featured on the exhibition flyer above. Several of these angels and a devil-like figure are shown in several of Meilo pictures in “The End of Innocence”.

Most probably “The End of Innocence” has at least one potential interpretation, it could be meant religiously. Another recurring element at “The End of Innocence” is a group of 3 genderless figures. They seem to turn away from the angel, seduced by the devil? And then there’s this woman with the red scarf. Is she watching the scene? Are the pictures in her head only. Is she the sinner who lost her innocence?
I leave it up to you to interpret Meilo’s art. These are just my thoughts.

I couldn’t get more information about Mielo Minotaur, I just found a flickr account of her. “The End of Innocence” is a very intriguing exhibition, for sure. Thank you Meilo.

Thank you Dixmix for providing and curating the DixMix Gallery, thank you Megan for building it and for contributing at it. I enjoyed my visit and seeing “The End of Innocence” by Meilo Minotaur. The exhibition will stay open until November 26th.

    Dear Diomita,
    You are right!
    Once we dive into Meilo´s art work, we find some differences.
    It does not pretend to have all the answers & give the free room for own interpretation, awaken by the feelings by viewing it.

    On behalf of the artist and curator Dixmix Source,
    thank you very much for your blog!

    We are very pleased and appreciate your work very much!
    Best regards,
    Violet Boa – Dixmix Gallery PR
