Art in Second Life 2023 (15) 2nis at Cloud Galleries

It’s been a while that I visited a gallery or art installation – I wasn’t in the right mood for it. Anyway on Monday, April 3rd, I accepted the invitation, that I got from Owl (Owl Dragonash) and visited an exhibition at Cloud Galleries with pictures of 2nis (2nis Sands). The official opening is today, Tuesday, April 4th at 11 AM (at 10 PM Central Europe Time) with music from Ilyra Chardin.

I have visited the Cloud Galleries end of 2022 and wrote a blogpost about it (read here). The Cloud Galleries is an area above Corsica South Coast. Nine artists have their studio galleries there, a thenth gallery is for a visiting guest artist every 2 months.
As of March 2023 the participating permanent artists are:

Elan (Ineffable Mote)
KayLy (kayly iali)
Lizzy Swordthain
Michiel Bechir
Owl Dragonash
StarZ (Starz33 Mccullough)
Stephen Venkman
Suzen Juel (Juel Resistance)
There’s a website for the Cloud Galleries where you can also find the event calendar.

2nis (2nis Sands) is the guest artist for April and May (March 23rd – May 26th). The studio of 2nis is not far from the landing point.

Together with the invitation I got a folder that also included a short biography of 2nis and a description of his art:
My interest for computer graphics pushed me to try Second Life 16 years ago. I quickly got hooked by the magic of virtual reality. Passed the culture shock, I enjoyed so much this space of freedom and tolerance where you can do what you want and discover who you really are. I had the chance to make beautiful friendships and discover talented artists. I enjoy exploring new places and seeing what sim builders do with all the amazing content designers bring into the virtual world. It’s like diving into peoples’ minds. The creativity of Second Life residents is amazing.
I make photos to keep memories of enjoyable moments.
The text made me smile as if could be from me myself. I take pictures to keep the memories I make in this virtual world for my real life. And the creativity in Second Life excites me even after more than 15 years.

Fitting to what 2nis wrote his pictures show landscapes, impressively created places and also a few pictures from events 2nis attended. He shares a part of his Second Life with the spectator. The pictures are a well selected excerpt of his broad picture collection that is shown also at his flickr account.
