Art in Second Life 2022 (65) Inara Pey at NovaOwl Gallery

I got an invitation by Owl (Owl Dragonash) to visit the NovaOwl Gallery and to see Inara Pey’s exhibition there. I’m a reader of Inara Pey’s blog for more than 14 years, actually I follow her “Living in a Modemworld“-blog since I became Diomita Maurer in Second Life. Her blog contains a lot of information, be it about the viewer, about locations, about developments in Second Life or art. I used and still use her blog to find ideas where to travel myself in Second Life and to get the latest Information about Second Life. Inara has an unique writing style, very picturesque and detailed. Her posts about places are always illustrated with pictures, and these pictures are always quite artful.

Inara wrote about the exhibition of her pictures at NovaOwl Gallery:
I don’t see myself as an artist or photographer, but rather a blogger who uses images to illustrate my writings about the places I visit in Second Life. They are intentionally devoid of narrative and avatars, and have minimal post-processing to achieve this. That people find them attractive and like them is genuinely flattering to me, as I am constantly in awe of those who can create such stunning images of Second Life, and I’m left with a sense of privilege when asked to display my pieces.”

Inara has an eye for the right view and motif. She slighty processes the pictures she takes in Second Life, some of the pictures featured at NovaOwl gallery are converted to monochrome to achieve the effect Inara desired. Inara’s pictures are as varied as Second Life is and reach from city scenes to beautiful landscapes, from art to fantasy and cover just what you can see in Second Life. What makes them even more facinating for me is that I recognize some places as I’ve been there myself, so they bring back fond memories of places that are gone by now.

You can see more of her pictures at Inara’s flickr page and of course at her “Living in a Modemworld“-blog. I can only recommend reading it regularly if you want to keep yourself up-to-date with Second Life or when you look for places to visit. Her entries almost always inspire me to visit myself.

And thank you Inara for your great pictures and of course for your blog, that has become a part of my Second Life over all these years. It’s a real great source of information.
