Art in Second Life 2020 (59) Third Eye Gallery – Jaz and Lynn

I got an invitation for the opening of a new exhibition at the Third Eye Gallery, featuring “Photos by Lynn” by Lynn (TitanicLynn Ayres) and “Navarasa” by Jaz (Jessamine2108). I went there Sunday, August 30th, the day after the opening.

The exhibition by Lynn is a collection of her captures of her SL exploration. They span across landscapes, architecture, still life, and stunning black and white photographs.

Lynn (TitanicLynn Ayres) started taking photos of Second Life this February. Lynn is fascinated by the colors and landscapes of SL. Most of her pictures are not post processed much, maybe just a few details like the sky. Her photos are about what captures her eye when exploring a sim. They maybe the vast panoramic landscapes or a small bird sitting on a branch. I personally was in particular impressed of the black and white pictures, a technique that I use myself for my pictures every once in a while.
Lynn presents her work also on flickr here.

“Navarasa” by Jaz (Jessamine2108) is a visual journey through emotions in Indian dance. Navarasas are the nine flavors described in ancient Indian sanskrit texts in any kind of art, and the emotions they evoke. The photos are exhibited at two levels. The lower level contains a pose from Indian dance embedded in an RL photo that contains the emotion it evokes. The higher level contains a visual that uses the creations from SL to depict that emotion.

Mistero Hifeng, Harry Cover (impossibleisnotfrench), and Eldo (Eldowyn Inshan) created the beautiful and quirky subjects for “Navarasa”. The pose creators Olaenka Chesnokov and Belly Button (barkha131) made the Indian dance poses. The RL photos used for “Navarasa” are stock photos from

Jaz has been doing photography in SL since 2018: “Thanks to all the artists and friends who have encouraged and inspired me. Special thanks to Harry Cover (impossibleisnotfrench Resident) for giving me an opportunity and courage to branch out on my own and to be able to collaborate and experiment with mesh with him. A big thanks to Kurk Mumfuzz and Tansee for showing me the magical world of particles and lights.”
I follow Jaz’ art work since 2019 when I saw an exhibtion of her work at Deva Westland’s Galerie Des Beaux-Arts (read here). Jaz is developing her own style and trying out herself and her art. I can sense her passion.

Third Eye is Jaz (jessamine2108)’s home and gallery – a place that is designed to showcase art, particles, inspire stories, and offer a quiet place to relax and rejuvenate. Jaz says: “It is the culmination of my many dreams – to create a place that nurtures and helps the growth of all types of creative endeavors – be it words, pictures, or particles.“
