Art in Second Life 2020 (5) New La Maison d’Aneli – another exhibition

I was a bit confused at first when I got the invitation for another exhibtion at La Maison d’Aneli from Aneli Abeyante. I just had visted and reported about the current exhibtion a few days before (see Art in Second Life (3) La Maison d’Aneli January/February 2020)

To clarify it: Aneli has moved her La Maison d’Aneli gallery to another place. The exhibition that I visited before is still open at the Old La Maison d’Aneli and I assume it will stay open there as announced until February 18th.
At the new location there’s another exhibtion with partly the same artists: JadeYuFhang, Adwehe, Eylinea, Vroum Short, Gaston Wonder, Aneli Abeyante

I will keep this post a bit shorter as I lack time…

Gaston Wonder is an artist I didn’t come across before ever. He’s in Second Life for almost 10 years. The pictures exposed at La Maison d’Aneli play with mirror effects. Some of Gaston’s pictures use thick chains as his subject melting into a coloured abstract background. For me personally the picture with the ants was most intriguing.

Eylinea has her art exhibted at the Old La Maison d’Aneli as well as at the New La Maison d’Aneli. Eylinea is quite new to Second Life and explores for herself a broad variety of artistic possibilities in Second Life: painting, photography, sculpture and even soon tattoo creation. At La Maison d’Aneli she shows some permanently changing geometrical displays that reminded me of Spirograph.

Aneli Abeyante, who runs La Maison d’Aneli, has her own corner also in this exhibtion. Aneli creates objects in 2D and 3D, colourful, steadily moving, and with particular light effects. Aneli writes about herself:
I love geometry and mathematics. So after much practice, I managed to clear structures and shapes. In reality I practice painting, I do not have precise style but I always seek harmonization.
In her room we see geometrical shapes with light blue and with a bronze red as the dominating colour. Most of the displays as constantly changing, my pictures are just snapshots. I like who the art mirrors in the floor at this new exhibtion room!

JadeYu Fhang writes about herself:
Living in Paris, France, i followed the evening classes in academic drawing at Fine Arts School of Paris and was trained at the Applied Arts School of this city.
After these studies I completely stopped all artistic work. My journey is atypical made of multiple experiences. I returned to artistic work when I was able to get rid of all the academic rigidity that had been taught me.
My experience on Second Life since 12 years allows me to continue and improve my work and extend it to 3D.
At La Maison d’Aneli her room also plays the the mirror effect of the floor. There’re 2 identical figures in JadeYu’s room, I’d characterize them as dancer. The gown and the figure itself look differently and is coloured differently depending on your view angle. The same figure can be seen in the background pictures. JadeYu plays with the visitors impression, she plays with light effects as well as with feelings. Look into the face of the dancers….

Adwehe has her art exhibted at the Old La Maison d’Aneli as well. This time it is a water scenery with a very interesting floor. There’re no ladders this time and some quite intriguing objects. I also like the two big abstract pictures in Adwehe’s installation.

Vroum Short is the owner of VeGaTal PLaNeT, the sim hosting the old La Maison d’Aneli.
Vroum Short is a French SL artist since 2007. As mentioned above she created VeGeTaL PLaNet, the location of the Old La Maison d’Aneli. VeGeTaL PLaNet is “a world where everything becomes possible and achievable where the barriers of reality fade away to let the imagination flood it with life. In her underwater exhibitions, living plant sculptures and luminous paintings, animated in 3D, mingle“.
Vroum Short’s art, currently exhibited at La Maison d’Aneli is a walkable colourful collection of geometric forms, almost looking like plants, then like playfully arranged queues. To demonstrate how you walk through the art I placed myself in one of the pictures.

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 Aneli for this exhibition and thank you to all artists.
P.S.: I really like the new exhibitions rooms, spacious and suitable for effects.
