Simploring 2018 (97) Another joined exhibition at La Maison d’Aneli

On October 31st, a new joined exhibition of 5 different artists was opened at La Maison d’Aneli. This time it features the art of Nevereux, Cybele Moon (Hana Hoobinoo), rikku Yalin, Barret Darkfold and Violaine (anadonne). And once again the mixture of different art is quite facinating.

I started my visit with Nevereux, an artist who I came across this year the first time seeing the installation doLLoureux (read here). At La Maison d’Aneli Nevereux presents the 3Dinstallation “Assembly line”. This installation is mostly made up of black straight lines, that define a room or an area. Some very few elements and texts “disturb” the lines and the rooms built by them. This maybe a blinking “Sale” sign in red, or a chair or a sliding door or a head. Together wiht the different geometrical forms you’ll be inspired to think about the potential messages behind it. You cross the room freely, the lines don’t hinder you, but nonetheless you feel the limitations that those line imply on you. Everybody has to make it’s own conclusions. Or as Neveruex expresses it “The point is that you’re inside a 3D drawing.

Cybele Moon (Hana Hoobinoo) is offers a mixture of photographs taken in the physical world on in virtual worlds. With some pictures it’s hard to distinguish where they were taken, or are the mixed? I liked in particular the Autumn picture with a tree loosing it’s leaves in front of it. Each of Cybele’s pictures seems to tell a story, that you have to make up yourself. The protraits are attracting, at least I wanted to know more, and again I can make up my own story.
Cybele has an own blog, that you might want to look up.

rikku Yalin’s art is a mixture of 3D and 2D, the objects seem to be built from scrap, they are to some extent funny. They interact with the 2D pictures displayed at the walls, be it graffiti or be it screws, nuts and gearwheels. Looking at the details is very interesting and at least my thought was that it all shouldn’t be taken too seriously. I just enjoyed exploring rikku’s art.

Barret Darkfold, in RL known as David Aran Brugues, is an abstract painter from Catalonia working with techniques like watercolor, oil, acrylic, mixed, encaustic, and digital art.
At La Maison d’Aneli he presents paintings with the colour Yellow. On a frist view they might look all similar, due to the amount of pictures on the same size, but looking closer at them you see that each of them is unique and as they are abstract you may interpret them yourself.
David Aran Brugues has also his own website, if you understand Spanish (I don’t) and are interested to see more of his art.

Violaine (anadonne) shows variations of RL photographs, abstract pictures and watercolour. The pictures are grouped, 4 variations of a picture or scene each. They are clearly connected with each other and tell a story or offer a different point of view. I for my part can’t categorize her art. I think she’s playing with different forms to express herself.

La Maison d’Aneli is owned by Aneli Abeyante. 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.

Thank you for another great joined exhibtion, Aneli. This joined exhibtion at La Maison d’Aneli is open until November 25th. I enjoyed my visit and it inspired me.

Simploring 2018 (84) A new joined exhibition at La Maison d’Aneli

At La Maison d’Aneli a new joined exhibition of 5 artists has been opened on Wednesday, September 26th. It features the art of: ChrisTower Dae, Solkide Auer & Magda Schmidtzau, Kirle Adamski and Dantelicia Ethaniel. All artists have a different focus which makes the exhibition varied and enjoyable. When you enter La Maison d’Aneli you get a folder offered which contains some information about the artists. I used some of this information in my following text.

ChrisTower Dae, Solkide Auer & Magda Schmidtzau, Kirle Adamski and Dantelicia Ethaniel featured in a joined exhibition at La Maison d’Aneli

Kirle Adamski, is a selftaught artist from Denmark who started painting in 1997 and had her first exhibition in Denmark in 2000. Kirlie expresses herself in strong colours. She says that she never decides a motive before painting, there’s no plan, in the end the painting expresses herself at the time it was made. Kirlie’s paintings are in watercolour and copied from RL paintings. She had several exhibitions in RL as well as in SL.

Dantelicia Ethaniel is a French plastic artist and fashion designer in first life, Dantelicia has embraced the virtuality of Second Life almost 10 years ago. She got passionate about SL photography early on and uses it to create a bridge with traditional painting effects such as water colors or acrylic she practiced in her everyday life.

Solkide Auer tries to express his ideas through different sculptures. He started creating geometrical shapes then used more difficult techniques such as “the shade”, which gives the possibility to manipulate a unique prim in a very complex way. As a result he obtained unexpected and different shapes quite unlike the ones anyone can find around. Solkide Auer’s art has been exhibited at several galleries and museums within SL but he has also transfered his art into RL exhibitions be it printed or be it shown as 3D on monitors.

At La Maison d’Aneli Solkide’s art work is part of an exhibition named “Might of Soul” that features pictures of Maddy (Magda Schmidtzau) who is a passionate phortographer in RL. In Second Life she plays with the possibilites of this virtual world and tries to convey the magic that she sees. Maddy had already quite a lot exhibitions within SL. Maddy’s pictures exhibitied at La Maison d’Aneli are both, RL pictures and artificially processed pictures taken in Second Life. The combination of Solkide’s geometrical shapes and shades with the pictures of Maddy makes this exhibtion unique.

ChrisTower Dae is an Italian photographer. Chris shows at La Maison D’Aneli portrait pictures taken in Second Life, mainly female. The pictures impress by their perfection as well as by the facial expression. The avatars have a unique soul and the viewer can sense the emotions transfered with the portraits. Chris places the face mostly at a side of his pictures, not showing the whole head which might contribute to the facination of the portraits.

La Maison d’Aneli is owned by Aneli Abeyante. Through her gallery she brings together all forms of creativity in RL and SL and the featured artists come from around the globe.

Thank you for this great joined exhibtion, Aneli. I enjoyed my visit a lot.

Simploring 2018 (73) – Art Afternoon

I found some time for simploring on Friday, August 24th and decided to visit some exhibitions.

First I went to Daphne.Arts and visited the exhibition Nativo, which brings a compilation of drawings, paintings and poems, created by the Italian artist Stefano Mingione. Mingione is an Italian artist in the physical world, who has been active since the 1970s. A common theme in these works is the depiction of duality in the human nature: youth and adulthood, birth and extermination – in a never-ending spiral of life and death. Along with his artworks, Mingione is presenting three of his poems, including “Nativo”, that gives name to the exhibition.

When you enter Nativo you’ll stand in the middle of Mingione’s pictures in black and white, which are kind of threatening, showing masses of desperate people, eager for life but scared to death. In many of these pictures you’ll find the crucified Jesus. There’s a clear relation to christianity in these pictures.

“Nativo” by Stefano Mingione at Daphne.Arts

You will see a human in an embryo pose hoovering in quite some distance of the pictures and a hallway leading to it. There’s one chair just at this scuplture, you can sit down and listen to the above mentioned poems, narrated by Stefano Mingione himself. For those not understanding Italian, there’s a translation to English.
You can get more information about the exhibition “Nativo” on the Daphne.Arts website.

Thank you Sheldon Bergman (sheldonbr) and Angelika Corral for providing Daphne.Arts.

Then I went to La Maison D’Aneli where a new exhibtion was opened to the public on August 22nd. Aneli Abeyante presents the work from several artits: JudiLynn India, 9Volt Borkotron, Megan Prumier, cullum Writer, Senka Beck, Impossibleisnotfrench and herself.

The exhibition is varied and compromises black and white erotic pictures (Megan Prumier), moving colourful geometric forms and spirals (Aneli Abeyante), artful mesh objects with a touch of technic (Impossibleisnotfrench), colorful abstract pictures (JudiLynn India), fractals and colourful pictures (cullum Writer) and the very colourful fantasy objects and pictures (9Volt Borkotron, Senka Beck).

There are notecards for more information about the artists avaiable either close to their work or as a folder with all of them. In the notecards you’ll find also links to other websites with even more information. I just used some basic information along with the pictures I took. Most of the exhibited art is also for sale.

Aneli Abeyante adores geometry and maths, she owns La Masion D’Aneli and provides her place for the art.
Known in SL as JudiLynn India and in RL as Judi Lynn studied art at Tyler School of Art/Temple University in Philadelphia, PA. She focuses her creativity on acrylic and digital painting.

Megan Prumier is a multimedia artist and resident in Second Life. Her skills are extended on the field of photography, mostly portraits on modern, minimal and even surreal Scenes.


Harry Cover, also known as Impossibleisnotfrench, is from France. He started his second life by playing with prims, then sculpties and finally mesh (Blender). He’s passionate about photos and  graphic designer in RL (among others).

Cullum Writer is from Brazil and found her artistic inspiration here in SL. She found the happiness to capture and perpetuate images that touched her sensibility with the harmony and grace of their forms and colors. She tries new techniques as fractals, collage, developing her graphic art.

9volt Borkotron’s digital works are most influenced by the gradual and often musical stages of natural transformation in all it’s forms ranging from the macro/micro biological material to the quantum electromagnetic on all scales.
Senka Beck’s playground is SL where she enjoys interacting with peeps and prims. She worked already at several projects within SL.

Thank you Aneli Abeyante for this great exhibition!

Simploring 2017 (96) 5 artists at La Maison d’Aneli

Recently I got an invitation for the opening of an exhibition at “La Maison d’Aneli” presenting five different artists: Calypos Applewhyte, Moewe Winkler, Lagu Indigo, Stardove Spirt and MathieuL Bravin.
La Maison d’Aneli is owned and run by Aneli abeyante. With her gallery she supports the artists and contributes to keep art in Second Life alive.

I went to see the exhibtion at the opening day, November 29th, but had to return home just after a first short view, hence I revisited a few days later. The upside was that I had the exhibition mostly all for myself.

Right next to the landing point is the exhibition of Lagu Indigo. The golden colours will literally attract you, when you arrive at La Maison d’Aneli. Lagu Indigo is an artist from Wales in the UK. Lagu loves all styles of art and loves to paint Angels in acrylic. The exhibition at La Maison d’Aneli is called Angelic Peace: “Based on peace when we feel angels near , this time of year brings us closer to spirituality and feeling of angels. My paintings are in acrylic. I hope you enjoy and it brings you inner joy and peace at Christmas and all year, as life goes though many changes, have faith and belief.”

Opposed to Lagu Indigo’s Angelic Peace is the exhibition “Mystical Forest” of Stardove Spirt. In this exhibition the colour blue is dominating and it makes a nice contrast to the gold of Lagu Indigo. Stardove Spirt wrote this about Mystical Forest: “I have based my build on a mystical enchanted forest, a blending of textures, drawings in chalk and added program features, a slight blend of christmas and the spirit of enchantment. Believe in magic and dream in the spirit of nature and enchantment. Hope you all enjoy. Blessings of peace

Stardove Sprit at La Maison d’Aneli

The exhibitions of Lagu and Stardove are on the upper level of La Maison d’Aneli. Downstairs you’ll find the other 3 exhibtions. The stairway leads you directly into the exhibtion of Calypso Applewhyte:
A good picture for me is when it speaks of life, an emotion. I love specially minimalist photography vision but however intense. The Woman in SL is my favorite subject, but I also like to photograph beautiful landscapes of SL with a special angle that could express the soul of the place.”

Calypso Applewhyte at La Maison d’Aneli

Adjacent to Calypso’s pictures you can see the work of MathieuL Bravin. His pictures have not a single theme. Most of them are in black and white. They are intended to transmit emotion and should not be simple pictures. Mathieu says that when he closes his eyes after looking at them he can hear the music, the tones of the actors, he can dive into the scene.

MathieuL Bravin at La Maison d’Aneli

The last exhibtion is opposed to Calypso’s and MathieuL’s exhibtion on the ground level of La Maison d’Aneli. Moewe Winkler is painting and photographing in RL as well as in Second Life. In this virtual world she enhances her pictures by the means of 3D, scripting and sound-installations. Her art impresses by minimalism on one side and by colour and particles on the other side. I want to mention the shadow couple, which moves behind the screen. I also liked the the tree with it’s 3D effects a lot.

Moeve Winkler at La Maison d’Aneli

During my visit I had a private chat with slave kelly and she asked me to let her join. I picked her up at home and she accompanied me visiting the last 3 exhibitions. We were all alone, nontheless it had something like “fetish meets art”.

Thank you Aneli abeyante for providing your gallery La Maison d’Aneli for the art. I enjoyed my visit.
