Art in Second Life 2022 (44) “The Forgotten Worlds” by Nils Urqhart @ United Artists of SL

I got an invitation from Nils Urqhart to see his newest exhibtion at United Artist of SL in the Galerie Principale. The exhibition is titled “The Forgotten Worlds“.

In “The Forgotten Worlds” Nils presents 30 photographs taken in the French Alps. The pictures create a strong contrast to the mordern Galerie Principale, a building that would fit into a Sci-Fi environment. The Galerie Principale building is open at the front and has 3 floors. On the first glance the pictures are small compared to the building. You have to get closer to them to really see them and to  experience them.

All pictures are taken well above or at the treeline. Nils has an eye for almost unreal scenes. Clouds that nestle against the mountain slopes and obscure the peaks. In other pictures, the peaks are above the clouds and you can see how the sun illuminates them. You get an impression of this “forgotten” world, a world mostly unseen by humans, a world of its own. On the other hand this world is stunning and beautiful.

Nils Urqhart (Paul Maurice in RL) is a French photographer in RL. He takes his photos mainly in French Alps and other French mountains (Vosges, Jura, Bugey, Aubrac…). Nils has a lot of exhibitions in different SL galleries every year. You can get a list with all of his current exhibitions from one of the exhibition posters in the center of the first floor of the Galerie Principale at United Artists of SL.
Nils is in SL since December 2007. Since 2010, his photos have been on display year-round at Art gallery Rill’Arts. Nils (or Paul in RL) has an own website where you can purchase his pictures to decorate you RL home.

Nils Urqhart is the creator of the RL Photo Festival Helvellyn, the Helvellyn Christmas Market and the Helvellyn Summer Fair – all three are annual artistic events. There are quite some potential contact opportunities besides his webpage: Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

I like Nils Urqhart (Paul Maurice) RL pictures. They are kind of a connection element between RL and SL. With “The Forgotten Worlds” you visit a “real” exhibtion in a virtual environment. Thank you Nils for another great exhibition
