Art in Second Life 2022 (45) “Waterfalls” by Nils Urqhart @ The Uzine gallery “L’autre monde”

Just before yesterday my post about Nils Urqhart’s exhibition “The Forgotten Worlds” at United Artist of SL in the Galerie Principale has been published (read my blogpost here).  I wrote that Nils has a lot of exhibitions in different SL galleries and I got another invitation to see “Waterfalls” by Nils Urqhart. This exhibtion is at a place named “The Uzine”.
The Uzine is open again. Located on the rooftops of London, The Uzine offers a permanent exhibition of photographs. And if you go through the gateway you will go to the gallery “L’autre monde” (the other world)
Nils Uqhart’s exhibtion is at the gallery “L’autre monde”. The Uzine is group owned, the group was found by Filip Odriscoll.

The gallery “L’autre monde” is quite outstanding. It is embedded in a scene of ruins. The wreck of an old coach is in one corner. The walls offer some cosy corners to sit and one roof is used as a party area. The walls offer more room than you would think on a first glance. In total the exhibition compromises 15 pictures.

As each picture has an own wall, often even an own corner, it can develop a stronger impression. And each of the waterfalls is very different. Nils managed to catch unique places and unique moments with his camera. In some pictures the water looks blue, in others white and in one picture it even looks green. And the pictures are not processed or manipulated (as far as I can tell).

Quite close to where you land you see another poster for “Waterfalls” (see the picture above). Clicking this poster provides a short bio of Nils and a list of his current exhibitions.

Nils Urqhart (Paul Maurice in RL) is a French photographer in RL. He takes his photos mainly in French Alps and other French mountains (Vosges, Jura, Bugey, Aubrac…). Nils has a lot of exhibitions in different SL galleries every year.
Nils is in SL since December 2007. Since 2010, his photos have been on display year-round at Art gallery Rill’Arts. Nils (or Paul in RL) has an own website where you can purchase his pictures to decorate you RL home.

Nils Urqhart is the creator of the RL Photo Festival Helvellyn, the Helvellyn Christmas Market and the Helvellyn Summer Fair – all three are annual artistic events. There are quite some potential contact opportunities besides his webpage: Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

I like Nils Urqhart (Paul Maurice) RL pictures. They are kind of a connecting element between RL and SL. With “Waterfalls” you visit a “real” exhibtion in a virtual environment. And I also like the gallery, a great place to present pictures! Thank you Filip Odriscoll and to anyone involved for providing this space for the arts.
Thank you Nils for another great exhibition.
