Art in Second Life 2020 (6) Pencil Brush Paper by Bowfluv Curtiss

One year ago I visited The Citadel (see Simploring 2019 (9) The Citadel). The Citadel is a very well made adult/BDSM friendly venue. For me it has the perfect mixture of my personal Second Life: Art & Architecture, BDSM and a nice environment. The sim is owned by Lesk Alzael who also has a small store named Cabal at The Citadel. I bought a large obelisk and took a free copy of an “Architects Study Model” when I visited in 2019. Both items are at our homesim nowadays.

A few days ago I got a group message that there’s a new exhibition at the Black Lux Gallery at The Citadel. The gallery features the drawn art of Bowfluv Curtiss. The exhibtion is called simply “Pencil Brush Paper”

The Black Lux Gallery is in a large old plant hall with it’s industrial atmosphere. The hall is also used for events at The Citadel. Bowfluv’s art is exhibited at the walls and at a moveable wall in the center of the hall. There’re several erotic pencil drawings in black and white as well as other pictures that are coloured.

Close to the entrance on the left is the picture of a naked female posing for a coloured pencil brush paiting. For me this picture was the most intriguing at the exhibition. It is titeled “Marisa Mirror Mounted”

Each and every painting seems to tell a story. There’s a series of 4 female portraits. All are very different, although the first impression is that they are just slightly different. Each woman has a different eye colour, a different lipstick colour, a diffferent chin, different eye brows, different hair, a different nose. The longer you look at them the more you see the differences.

It’s the first time I ever saw Bowfluv’s art and I didn’t see any notecard or information about him at the gallery. Hence all I know is that he’s in Second Life for more than 13 years and that he still enjoys it (just like I do): “A long time here ….and still everyday a marvel.”

Thank you Lesk Alzael for providing the space for the art at The Citadel, thank you Bowfluv Curtiss for you art. I enjoyed my visit!
