Art in Second Life 2022 (14) life light by Milena Carbone

Just a week ago I visited Milena Carbone (mylena1992)’s remodeled and renamend gallery – The Carbone Studio (read here). In The Carbone Studio Milena has one exhibition hall that is dedicated to a monthy exhibition of her art. On February 2nd, “life light” by Milena Carbone was opened in this space.

life light” consists of 9 pictures, all showing a female – Milena herself – with different backgrounds in different situations. All pictures are quite bright and minimalistic. So nothing does really distract the focus from Milena, her mood, her face, her body.

Milena wrote about her pictures showcasted in “life light“:
Each of the paintings in this exhibition wishes to offer thanks for the privilege of being alive, for being separated from matter and light, generated by a cold and absolute dark womb.
We are the spectators of the inside of its sacrifice in countless elementary particles dancing a mysterious choreography with a secret melody. We are alive among life, pure beauty, sharp thoughts, fulfilling emotions, love.
We are the forever grateful gifts of nothingness. I remind myself of this every morning as I emerge from my night’s sleep. Every day is the best day of my life.

Impressions from “life light” by Milena Carbone

There’s another text from Milena about Light and life that is on a board next to the entrance and shown in the picture above.
The 9 paintings do express exactly the feelings that Milena listed in her text: “being alive, pure beauty, sharp thoughts, fulfilling emotions, love”. I like them in their simplicity.

Examples of “life light” by Milena Carbone

Milena Carbone (mylena1992) is a French artist and is in Second Life since mid 2019. She discovered its artistic potential and since then has devoted all her free time to creation, associating, as in real life, images and texts: “Milena Carbone is a fiction in which, as in any artistic work, biographical and imaginary elements are mixed.” Her creative process is iterative: some of her images inspire her stories and these stories modify the development of the image, which itself transforms the story.
Milena has an own website, you can also find her on flickr here and you can read her texts here.

life light” by Milena Carbone shall stay open until March 2nd.
