Art in Second Life 2022 (52) Hustle Art Gallery – June 2022

Tuesday, June 7th, I got a group message from Aneli Abeyante who invited to visit a new joined exhibition at Hustle Art Gallery.
The gallery is new to me. It is owned by BS4M. Actually the Hustle Art Gallery looks more like a club on the first glance. And the landmark profile also just refers to it as a club:
LIVE DJs from all over the world
House Music, Tech House, Progressive, Melodic House & Techno, Techno, Trance, EDM, Freestyle, DnB, Electrohouse, Funky and more style

But right when I landed I saw Aneli’s pictures at the walls .. and looking up I could see that there are two more floors and they are used to showcase art. Currently the Hustle Art Gallery features Aneli Abeyante on the ground floor, ZackHerrMann and Hermes Kondor on the floor above and Patrick Moya’s art on the top floor.

My visit started on the ground floor. Knowing Aneli Abeyante’s art I did recognize it immediately. I think that I have seen some of the blue pictures already. At Hustle Art Gallery, Aneli shows her permanently changing colourful geometric art. The pictures are made of several layers and by moving the layers you get the impression of permanent change.

Aneli is in Second Life since 2009. She creates objects in 2D and 3D, colourful, steadily moving, and with particular light effects. Aneli writes about herself: “I love geometry and mathematics. So after much practice, I managed to clear structures and shapes. In reality I practice painting, I do not have precise style but I always seek harmonization.
You can see more of Aneli’s art on her flickr account. Besides her own artwork, Aneli’s passion is curating La Maison d’Aneli. Through her gallery she brings together all forms of creativity in RL and SL and the featured artists come from around the globe. Aneli’s intention is to “put her gallery in the service of artists, so that the world can be better, exchanges and meetings probably contribute even though it seems to be particles.

On the floor above the dance area shows the work of ZackHerrMann on one side and the work of Hermes Kondor on the other side.
ZackHerrMann is a French psychedelik artist from the French Riviera. He’s in Second Life since 2012. He writes about his work on a board at the exhibition:
French artist, kind of an alien from the unidentified dimension! He draws wither by hand or by digital toos or both. He has been a nightlife creature, a cyber punk LGBT glam cosmic one. He likes to create sounds and bizarre music that he uses for many projects. He is the creature of a fictive heroin called Linda Cluster. He works a lot usings the Second Lide Metavers, he loves concets, he is THE concept!
ZackHerrMann’s art is quite unique. It is mostly held in golden or yellow, everything looks full and rich and there’s often a story to follow. At Hustle Art Gallery though, he showcases some of his also permanently changing pictures, at bit like Aneli’s art, yet other colours and other forms.
ZackHerrMann has a little museum in Second Life – Zack Herr Mann Universum. You can also see more of his art at his flickr page.

Hermes Kondor (aka Luis Vasconcelos) is from Lisbon, Portugal. He’s a former teacher of photography and photojournalism and looks back on 40 years of photography experience. Hermes likes to see and shoot and he loves street photography.
Recently he began working on experimental macro photography, in studio, creating very small still life compositions. In this kind of Photography I like to explore the Beauty of seeing closer, finding new perspectives, and different ways to see small objects. A few examples of these pictures can be seen at the Hustle Art Gallery.

Hermes is in Second Life since 2007. He is the owner and curator of the Kondor Art Center, where you can not only see his work but also that from other artists.

Finally on the top floor of the Hustle Art Gallery you find an exhibition of Patrick Moya with the subject “Dolly Party”
I saw already some of Patrick Moya (moya janus)’s art. I came across him in 2017 when I visited his Moya Land (read Simploring 2017 (56) Moya).

The “Dolly Party” takes places once a year in Southern France. The name came up as couples of same sex and look (clones like the cloned sheep Dolly) entered the party for free. People with a broad variety of kink travel to this party that became a LGBT event. Patrick Moya created a pink sheep that became the icon of the LGBT community. “On the occasion of each party, Partick Moya performs the flyer, sometimes large canvases carried out on site live and in some cases animated films projected on the walls. We find the little sheep in his adventures with a recognizable graphi charter among all.

Patrick Moya (born 1955 in Troyes, France), is a French artist. He is a part of the artistic movement “Ecole de Nice”. Moya has been at the forefront since the 1970s of straddling the latest forms of media and technology to benefit art rather than rendering it extinct.
(excerpt from wikipedia).
He is an early pioneer of video art and is active with his art in Second Life since 2007 in addition to his work in the physical world. The barriers between the two worlds do blur in his artistic work. Moya Patrick (moya janus) has also a website with tons of information about his work and about Moya in Second Life. Unfortunately it is in French only.

Tank you BS4M for providing the space for the arts at Hustle Art Gallery, thank you all who contributed to enable this exhibition and thank you to all artists who are featured. I enjoyed my visit!
