Art in Second Life (67) La Maison d’Aneli Oct/Nov

On Wednesday, October 21st, a new exhibtion was opened at La Maison d’Aneli. It features the art of Hermes Kondor, chapichapo Delvalle, Gabriel Redrose, Renoir Adder, Moya Patrick, Carelyna, Magda Schmidtzau and Jipe Loon.

As usual I didn’t wait until the opening and I couldn’t attend the opening event due to my other obligations in RL and SL. Hence I peeked in again early.

I started my visit with the skybox of Magda Schmidtzau. Due to the concept with the skyboxes, the artists can choose how to present their art and they do it quite differently. Magda Schmidtzau, or Maddy, choosed a gallery space in dark tomes with some red light and spotlights on her pictures. The gallery has several rooms and levels. Maddy’s pictures are quite erotic and deal with the female body in different poses and with different background.

Magda is in Second Life since 2009 and is passioante about photography. She tries out different ways of processing her pictures and “tries to convey the magic that she sees”. I did see already some of her exhibtions in Second Life and her work is always intriguing.

Chapichapo Delvalle is a French artist, connected to Patrick Moya (moya janus), in Second Life since 11 years and has done a lot of different things in SL, learned to build and learned a bit about scripting and supports people in sandboxes. Currently Chapichapo is supporting Partrick Moya (moya janus) as director of the Moyaland tourist office.

A La Maison d’Aneli Chapichapo’s skybox is made of several rooms and levels that are connected by tubes and stairs. All walls, floors, and ceilings are covered with fractals, you kind of see a gallery within a Kaleidoscope. The first pictures you see are party RL pictures and party abstract pictures in front of a wall texture covered with Eiffel towers. In the main room with the fractal textures covering the walls you see ever changing moving colourful spirals and kaleidoscopes as eye catchers within the walls. Chapichapo also added some 3D objects, that are also animated. Overall, a very particular and outstanding exhibtion room.
You can see more of chapichapo Delvalle’s work on flickr here.

I saw already some of Patrick Moya (moja janus)’s art. I came across him in 2017 when I visited his Moya Land  (read Simploring 2017 (56) Moya). At La Maison d’Aneli his room is kind of a big library. The walls are completely used a storage for Partick’s art. Some of these are only textures, in some others there’re objects stored – and all are in Patrick’s unique style. The feeling of being in a library room is enhanced by some 3D shelfs and objects like the ladder or the desk in the center of the room.
Of course there’s a lot to discover at the walls. I think you could easily spend hours in here!

Patrick Moya (born 1955 in Troyes, France), is a French artist. He is a part of the artistic movement “Ecole de Nice”. Moya has been at the forefront since the 1970s of straddling the latest forms of media and technology to benefit art rather than rendering it extinct.
(excerpt from wikipedia).
He is an early pioneer of video art and is active with his art in Second Life since 2007 in addition to his work in the physical world. The barriers between the two worlds do blur in his artistic work. Moya Patrick (moya janus) has also a website http://moyapatrick.com/ with tons of information about his work and about Moya in Second Life. Unfortunately it is in French only.

Renoir Adder’s gallery room at La Maison d’Aneli is a square room held in black and blue with the pictures at the four walls. He makes classic paintings that are uploaded into Second Life. Some of his paintings remind of van Gogh others of monet and again others don’t fit into any scheme.

Renoir is Italien, he’s an experienced musician and played the rhythm guitar. He worked in Luxemburg, Belgium, Holland and France, where he attended a course at the ecole d’art, before he return to Italy. He began painting without ever stopping … and we can see some of his paintings now here.

Jipe Loon lives in France, was a student in art school, then found his passion for stone sculptures. Jipe is in Second Life for more than 13 years and now sculpts irtually using tool like ZBrush, Cinema4D, DAZ 3D, Blender, or SubstancePainter. Jipe sells his creations on the marketplace. I came across some of his figures already before in the frame of my simploring tours. I also saw some more when I visited the Extempore Gallery and Lounge (read here).

In the center of Jipe’s skybox at La Maison d’Aneli is a museum in the shape of a pyramid. You should switch advanced lighting on and activate shadows from sun/moon and projectors. The pyramide museum is guarded by an egypt, a really tall statue. You can sit on the palm of the guardian and will dance on it. The museum is great. There are several sculpture inside, presentated like they would be in a real museum. In the center is a group of 3 females playing with a chain. What is special is the effect of the light coming down from the top of the pyramid and highlighting the different sculptures. Very well done!
What is funny is the advice at the entry about wearing a mask in these times (in Second Life?). The revenue from the maskswill support the arts. In the museum you also see a model of the virus.

Hermes Kondor is from Portugal. He’s a photographer and photojournalist. Hermes has 40 years of professional photography experience. He dealt with the hard reality of real life photography working for a daily newspapers, and as a photographer and photo-edtior in several magazines. He also worked as a teacher of photography and photojournalism.

Hermes is in second Life for almost 13 years. His pictures can also been seen at his own gallery, the Kondor Photo Gallery, and at his flickr account.
What Hermes really likes most is street photography and the exhibtion at La Maison d’Aneli is all about it. It is also about Hermes’ passion for dogs. The work was also exhibited in the Colorfoto Photo Gallery, in Lisbon, in April 2018, and a book was published about it. A special edition of the book, created for Second Life, will is available during the exhibition, as a gift to all visitors.

Carelyna is in Second Life for almost 8 years. SL gave her the opportunity to reach two dreams of her childhood. She grew up on a boat, and she took art classes and learned to paint on an easel with oil paints. This is the reason why she tries to make her photos look like paintings. She replaced the traditional tools with the computer. Carelyna has also a flickr page.

Her square gallery room is filled with pictures, mainly held in yellow and orange tones. That these pictures were taken in Second Life can’t be seen on a first glance if at all. They are artful and impressive.

Gabrienna Scott Redrose (Gabriel Redrose) is in Second Life for over 10 years. She models and you can see a lot of her at her flickr page here. In the accompanying notecard of the exhibtion she writes about herself “Hi I’m Gabs, the Artist and Owner of Redrose Art. I’m an aspiring Model and Artist on Second Life.. I live in SL as a Bat-Girl avi, It ‘s been pretty fantastic i must say. I meet awesome people everyday and have made several close friends over the years.
It is the first time that I see anything of her in Second Life.

At La Maison d’Aneli her skybox is filled with pcitures and 3D objects. One wall is used to promote her own brand “Redrose Art”. The 3D objects don’t have a common style, hence they are hard to desrcibe. I personally liked the matchstick figures below of the Redrose Art sign. 3 walls are used to present Gabrienna’s pictures, which are colourful and abstract. Overall an intriguing exhibition with a lot to see.

The current exhibition stays opened at least until November 10th.
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. As always I enjoyed my visit and writing about it. It always inspires me.

Art in Second Life 2020 (27) Extempore Gallery and Lounge

After my blogpost about the April exhibition at La Maison d’Aneli (read here) I had contact with one of the artists who were featured in this exhibition – Etamae.
Etamae is from the UK and began taking photographs and then turning those photographs into digital art in 2018.
Her first passion was erotic art and I had come across Etamae in 2019 the first time when I visited her exhibtion “Dominance and Submission” at Elevate Femdom (see here).

And more of etamae’s erotic art can be seen at Eta’s Feed Your Fetish Gallery which is “a little edgy, somewhat sensual centered about the erotic and the BDSM lifestyle” and hence does fit to my personal passion. On Monday, April 27th, I visited Eta’s Feed Your Fetish Gallery (see my blogpost here).

Besides owning Eta’s Feed Your Fetish Gallery Etamae owns two other galleries and I visited one of them on Thursday April 30th: The Extempore Gallery and Lounge.

Extempore Gallery and Lounge – impressions of etamae’s own art

At the Extempore Gallery and Lounge Etamae showcases pictures taken in Second Life and manipulated in particular by recolouring and adding light effects to them as well as some animated permantently changing pictures. Etamae is not defined by just one style or area of art, she plays with different patterns and tries herself out in a broader spectrum of art.

At the Extempore Gallery and Lounge Etamae not only showcases her own art but provides the space also to other artists. At the time of my visit the gallery featured also the art from: CybeleMoon (hana.hoobinoo), Patrick Moya, Sophie Marie Sinclair (perpetua1010), Aneli Abeyante, Jipe Loon, Patrick Ireland (PatrickofIreland), Harry Cover (impossibleisnotfrench) and Safar Fiertze.

Extempore Gallery and Lounge – impressions of Patrick Moya’s art

I saw already some of Patrick Moya (moja janus)’s art. I came across him in 2017 when I visited his Moya Land (read Simploring 2017 (56) Moya).
Patrick Moya (born 1955 in Troyes, France), is a French artist. He is a part of the artistic movement “Ecole de Nice”. Moya has been at the forefront since the 1970s of straddling the latest forms of media and technology to benefit art rather than rendering it extinct.
(excerpt from wikipedia).
He is an early pioneer of video art and is active with his art in Second Life since 2007 in addition to his work in the physical world. The barriers between the two worlds do blur in his artistic work. Moya Patrick (moya janus) has also a website http://moyapatrick.com/ with tons of information about his work and about Moya in Second Life. Unfortunately it is in French only.
At the Extempore Gallery and Lounge we see examples and drafts of at Moya label in many different variations. I’m not sure, but somehow it felt familiar, I might have seen some ot the exhibits already before

Extempore Gallery and Lounge – impressions of CybeleMoon (hana.hoobinoo)’s art

I also came across CybeleMoon or Hana Hoobinoo already a few times, the last time when I visited “The Itakos Project and Art Gallery“ (read here). Cybele’s picture always have a fantasy background and often show portraits or people in a peaceful, mostly hazy fantasy world. Her pictures seem to tell a story, that you have to make up yourself.

Extempore Gallery and Lounge – impressions of Sophie Marie Sinclair (perpetua1010)’s art

Sophie Marie Sinclair is a RL painter and book author. She mainly paints nude from models and abstract art. She loves to experiment with different kind of paint and lithography. She has made several book illustrations and was for many years political cartoonist for a well known satire magazine. She lived and worked in the Unites States, Australia, Rome and Monaco.
At Extempore Gallery and Lounge you can see some of her “Inpirations in Red”, powerful paintings in red with a fantastic 3D-effect.

Extempore Gallery and Lounge – impressions of Aneli Abeyante and Jipe Loon’s art

Aneli Abeyante, who runs La Maison d’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.”
Some of the Aneli’s work exhibited at Extempore Gallery and Lounge was already shown at La Maison d’Aneli in January/February 2020 (see my blogpost here). You see geometrical shapes with one dominating colour. Most of the displays as constantly changing.

The 3D figures that are showcase in the area of the staircase were created by Jipe Loon, erotic figures, truely exaggerated yet intriguing. Jipe is in Second Life for more than 12 years and he sells his creations on the marketplace. I came across some of his figures already before in the frame of my simploring tours, but I never saw more than one, yet at Extempore Gallery and Lounge you see a few of them.

Extempore Gallery and Lounge – impressions of Patrick Ireland (PatrickofIreland)’s art

When I visited “The Itakos Project and Art Gallery“ (read here) I saw an exhibition of Partick Ireland’s art but I couldn’t find any information about him. Patrick’s art, surrealism pure, is shown also at Extempore Gallery and Lounge, but there was a notecard with a bit more information, including his SL name PatrickofIreland:
Originally in SL in 2008 and recently back after a hiatus of many years, Patrick found his passion for SL photography a little more than a year ago. In this short time, he has become a prolific SL photographer known for his detailed sets and desire to share the joy of his many interests, including surreal subjects, Asian art and philosophy, civic issues and, of course, love.

Extempore Gallery and Lounge – impressions of Harry Cover (impossibleisnotfrench) and Safar Fiertze’s art

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). One of his objects – Statue vis ecrou all inone – can also be found at my home *winks*. Harry also works with Serene Footman, who creates sims after real places, you’d usually never come across exploring the world as a tourist. He creates landmark buildings for Serene and I mentioned him several times already when I wrote about Serene Footman’s weired outstanding places.

Safar Fiertze has two installations at Extempore Gallery and Lounge. She’s in SL for almost 12 years and writes about herself: “I love labyrinths and labyrinthian minds. I like the artistic and innovative juxtaposition of words. I’ve discovered the joys of juxtaposing prims
Baletka is an interactive story experience at Extempore Gallery and Lounge loosely inspired by an R.D. Laing case study. You can walk through the story and see Safar’s 3D art.
There’s a second installation of Safar Fiertze “Mechanical Apparition of Emergent Dream” where you can interact with bouncing balls, which reproduce themselves – intriguing.

My spontaneous visit to Extempore Gallery and Lounge became longer than I thought. I had fun seeing it and I enjoyed the art from artists who I came across before again. Thank you etamae for providing and curating your Gallery. I had only one more gallery from etamae to visit “Etamae’s gallery at Absolute Bliss” and I tried Saturday, May 2nd .. but it is gone or the Landmark I had was invalid,

Art in Second Life 2020 (17) La Maison d’Aneli April 2020

On Wednesday, April 8th, the April exhibtion at La Maison d’Aneli was opened to the public. This time it features the art of Agleo Runningbear, Eifachfilm Vacirca, Etamae, FionaFei, Tralala Loordes, Xirana Oximoxi and Kalyca McCallen. I peeked into the exhibtion already on Sunday, April 5th.

I started my visit with the room presenting the art of Etamae.
Etamae is from the UK and began transforming her pictures from  the things she has seen and loved in Second Life into something else, in digital art in 2018. I came across Etamae in 2019 when I visited her exhibtion “Dominance and Submission” at Elevate Femdom (see here). Today Etamae has also an own gallery to showcase her art, the Extempore Gallery and Lounge, another gallery I might visit soon. At La Maison d’Aneli Etamae works with animated pictures that change permanently either with fading in and out different perspectives of the same picture or with zooming in and out. Two of these pictures are on twisted surfaces thus increasing the animation effect. We see heads and bodies or broken bits of them, the walls are covered by webs of barb wire, faces watch us… you can let your mind wander in the complexity of thoughts and impressions.

La Maison d’Aneli – April 2020 – Etamae

Kalyca McCallen and Proton d-oo-b (Eifachfilm Vacirca) formed Alchemelic, a Zurich-based music and art project with cinematographic background, mixed media, and 3D modeling. Proton d-oo-b (Eifachfilm Vacirca) is from Switzerland and looks back on decades of experience in different media businesses. His music style ranges from traditional to experimental. Kalyca McCallen is a multi-media artist from California and loves experimenting with texture and color. They aspire to spark our imagination and elevate our mood with their unique blend of visual art and original music. Kalyca McCallen and Proton d-oo-b (Eifachfilm Vacirca)’s installation at La Maison d’Aneli is titeled “The Space Between”. In their room you see three large 3D heads on both long sides of their room leading you to a door that brings you to platform with the core installation. You enter the space … planets and stars around you between 2 even larger 3D heads, a strange world, a fantasy, science fiction in your mind. Imagine that with experimental music!
Unfortunately I had no music from Alcemelic during my visit though but I had a look at their youtube channel, where you find many long and short clips of their music and their 3D art. The provided notecard at La Maison d’Aneli provides much more information and many more links.

La Maison d’Aneli – April 2020 – Kalyca McCallen and Proton d-oo-b (Eifachfilm Vacirca)

April Louise Turner (Agleo Runningbear) is an artisan shaman with native American, Romanian, German and Irish roots (wow). She makes perfomances, poems and paintings. Her art is also featured at ArtCare Gallery, another place to be added on my list of places to visit. At La Maison d’Aneli we see portraits in different techniques, mainly pencil drawings. At the time of my visit, her room was not yet finished and the pictures weren’t yet aligned perfectly, but the pictures itself were already there and the longer you look at them, the more they impress.

La Maison d’Aneli – April 2020 – April Louise Turner (Agleo Runningbear)

Tralala Loordes is in Second Life since SL 2009 and devoted to everything post-apocalyptic. But she’s also tempted by LODE headpieces. To her “they’re so much like Renaissance flower paintings. Flowers also have stories, myths, lore”. I never heard about LODE headpieces nor did I find a definition. In her room at La Maision d’Aneli you can see them: fantasy portraits with huge headpieces made of flowers and other elements. The pictures are presented in a fantasy environment, each picture held by a hand, a few pigeons on the floor and flying around and 2 large trees at the entrance so that you enter a different world.

La Maison d’Aneli – April 2020 – Tralala Loordes

Xirana Oximoxi is a Catalan artist, children’s books writer and illustrator. She works with different mediums, oil, watercolor, acrylic, ink, charcoal and pastel. At La Maison d’Aneli she presents her exhibition “Lost Souls”, which is in some way related to the current situation in all of our real lifes: “During these days of confinement many of us have to reinvent ourselves a bit so we can have a better time locked up at home. Walking around the rooftop I noticed the irregular surface of the walls and they have become a source of inspiration. “Lost Souls” is the title of a series of images I discovered following a small crack or the configuration suggested by the little fragments of rock of the conglomerate. The technique is a mixed media of photography and digital retouch.” It is fun to look at these stone surfaces and to discover faces, it attracts your attention to look more intensively and to abstract. It is not the first time that she is featured at La Maison d’Aneli. I saw her exhibtion “Women Artists XVI-XIX” there in February 2019 (see here)
Xirana has her an own website and an own blog.

La Maison d’Aneli – April 2020 – Xirana Oximoxi

I came across FionaFei’s art already two times this year visiting her Shui Mo Gallery (see here) and visiting her installation Impostor (see here).
Fiona is Chinese by decent but spent the majority of her life in the West: “I have a fascination with Chinese history and culture, but I often feel like I’m viewing my ancestry through a filter of Americanized information and experiences. Furthermore, my artistic background has been in charcoal and oil painting mediums, and I’ve had very little experience in actual ink-brush painting.” For more information look up FionaFei’s own website.
At La Maison d’Aneli we see 6 2D paintings of Fiona arranged at the left and at the right side of her installation. The installation itself is a bit more colourful then what I saw from her so far, held in black, red and green. And again you can walk in and get a part of the installation – and walking in your get different perspectives. Another piece of art, another technique – and I like it.

Dio’s 12th year in Second Life Feb 11th, 2019 – Part II

Yesterday, I had my 12th anniversary of joining Second Life.
It has become a tradition for me to write a longer blog post on the occasion of my rezzdays, to have a look back on the last year and to realize the changes in my Second Life as well as the things that didn’t change. Yesterday, I published Part I of my anniversary entry and talked about my closer family and the changes in my family. Today’s part II is about the simploring tours I made in my 12th year.

12 years in Second Life – part II: My simploring tours

Let me start with my simploring tours about art in Second Life. I admire the creativity of artists in this virtual world, I visited galleries like Lyric Art Gallery, La Masion D’Aneli, 20][21 gallery, Rey’s Gallery, Shui Mo Gallery, Milly Sharple’s Fractal galleries, Daphne.Arts and Deva Westland’s Galerie Des Beaux-Arts. I visited and wrote about 7 installations of Cica Ghost, who continues to conjure a smile in my face with every of her funny whimsical creations. I saw fewer art installations since the Linden Endowment for the Arts (LEA) is on hold. But some private initiatives luckily provide space or the artists themselves dedicate their own space. Just recently I saw an exhibition of Mistero Hifeng’s art at Valium Creek Art Park. I saw “The Mind Melter” by Thoth Jantzen at VeGeTaL PLaNeT, I saw “Lalawood” by Theda Tammas, Yoon (onyxxe), Iono Allen and JadeYu Fhang at La Maison d’Aneli as well as “Binary Radiation” by Nino Vichan. I saw Twilights Doors by Bo Zano (Bozanonl Resident), “The Outer Garden” by bisou Dexler, “Inferno” by Noke Yuitza, “Avaloir” by Eupalinos Ugajin, Undertones by Oluja (artistik Oluja) and “Delicatessen – Tell Me a Story” by Meilo Minotaur.

Since January 2020 the blog has a new category for blogposts about art in Second Life, I won’t categorize old entries though.

I found many cosy and lovely sims where people built their own dreamworld, peaceful and picturesque. You don’t need many prims or a large place for it, Nevgilde Gaard or Black Mire – around hi-cafe are examples for that. Most of these dreamworlds were homesteads: Florence Bay, Authors Point, Secondlife National Park, Maderia Springs, Blaylock Island, Scarlett Isle, Carolina, Broken, Alternate Reality, Fleur Nederland [Dutch], La Digue, Northern Shore – Skärgården, Soul of Dreams … just to name a few. In these sims I spent relaxing hours and enjoyed the views and the peace.

Northern Shore – Skärgården (upper left) / Scarlett Isle (upper right) / Secondlife National Park (lower left) / Black Mire – around hi-cafe (lower right)

Some were really particular. I want to mention Last Dove, a sim like a movie. It’s setting is based on Lonesome Dove, a 1985 Western novel by American writer Larry McMurtry. Last Dove is still open if you haven’t seen it yet. I also liked Kun-Tei-Ner, a sim that provided a scary view into mankind’s future, a place with no land, a city that grew up on a huge mountain of containers filled with broken technological stuff. And just recently I visited the SS Galaxy, the largest cruiseship in Second Life – impressive, in particular when you consider it’s history.

Last Dove (upper and lower left) / Kun-Tei-Ner (upper right) / SS Galaxy (lower right)

Then there were the sims that have a real background, where a place in the physical world was build in Second Life. This way I got a picture, an idea of the real places and my visits gave reason to do a little bit of research. Venice in Italy was one of these impressing places and I spent some time exploring it.
I had never heard about Ukivok before and now I have the feeling that I’ve been there already. I had heard of Huntington Beach before but wasn’t aware of it’s oil industry history. I also had heard and read of North Brother Island, yet I haven’t been there in real life (yet). Now I somehow feel like I’ve been there. I learned a lot about Chesapeake Bay, a place I’ve been to twice in reality already being not aware of it’s history.

Ukivok (upper left) / North Brother Island (upper right) / Chesapeake Bay (lower left) / Huntington Beach (lower right)

I also discovered many places related to my kinky side, to BDSM. That’s another dream you can live in Second Life and I do. Unfortunately some of these places don’t stay long like the Elevate Femdom Lounge, Windhaven or Meadow Rose. Also some adult places, that we liked to visit every once in a while, are gone now like The Apostasy or Angel of Pain’s BDSM island (Remark: Angel of Pain has a successor sim)

Gone: The Apostasy (upper left) / Angel of Pain’s BDSM Island (upper right) / Dungeon at Windhaven (lower left) / Meadow Rose (lower right)

Just recently I discovered Caged Elegance, a club with many member, lots of events and all sort of kinks. I enjoyed my visit to Catena et Cavea, an adult sim that is also really picturesque. Amrum is another place I not only went to for simploring but also for a session with Mistress Jenny when I had a green light. I like in particular the BDSM vacation home there.
We visited The Obliviation Hole RLV Prison of Starbright Wingtips who gave us a full tour. The prison and what is going on there is a regular subject when we chat during our Friday night parties.

Thank you all for building, for creating and for sharing your dreams (kinky or not kinky) with the rest of the community. And please apologize if I did not mention all of my tours, it were simply too many. I did really enjoy all of my simploring tours!

End of part II, tomorrow’s part III will be about the other highlights of my 12th year.

Art in Second Life 2020 (3) La Maison d’Aneli January/February 2020

Yesterday, Wednesday, January 22nd, La Maison d’Aneli had the opening of another joined exhibition of several artists. Aneli Abeyante features Quadrapop Lane at “La Serre” and Adwehe, Anadonne, DekabristMouse, Kara Mellow, Eylinea and her own art at the main gallery. Once again I visited the exhibition before the official opening, as I couldn’t attend the opening itself.
The exhibition will stay opened until February 18th.

I started my tour in the main gallery with the art of Eylinea. She 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

La Maison d’Aneli January/February 2020 – Eylinea

Violaine (anadonne) is in Second Life for 3 years now. Her pictures at La Maison d’Aneli are mostly abstract. Some of them look like maps coloured in different tones of one colour, in other pictures you recognize parts of human bodies. Violaine’s pictures are displayed in groups that belong to one theme each.

Mouse (dekabristmouse), a russian art student likes furry, space and fallout themes. He runs a shop for space, ground and water vehicles and for furry mods. At his corner at La Maison d’Aneli he displays drawing of furries and fantasy arts with characters created by himself. One wall shows drawings in black and white, one wall shows coloured drawings.

La Maison d’Aneli January/February 2020 – Mouse (dekabristmouse)

Aneli Abeyante, who runs La Maison d’Aneli, has her own corner in the exhibtion this time again. 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.
At her corner we see geometrical shapes with blue as the dominating colour. Most of the displays as constantly changing, my pictures are just snapshots.

At La Maison d’Aneli Kara Mellow presents his art around the themes “Brain” and “Pink, the new Black”. The notecard with the artist biography reads as follows:
Kara Mellow is considered one of the greatest truglucists of all time. He creates beautiful emptiness out of ugly plenitude. As a confessed Obliviousonist he likes cheese in words and he hates Siri. The latency of this love-hate binomial is more than evident in his work yet to be done, like “March”, Mellow’s favorite month and, at same time, his second most hated synced motion.

La Maison d’Aneli January/February 2020 – Kara Mellow

His art is quite intriguing and he likes to provoke and to exaggerate. I like in particular his “Petflix” corner where you can kneel down for binge watching the void.

Adwehe is quite new in Second Life. At La Maison d’Aneli Adwehe created a room mainly filled with 3D objects in different geometrical forms. You can climb up on them or sit on spheres and become part the art yourself. At the walls some pictures are displayed. Adwehe seems to like ladders.

I ended my visit at La Maison d’Aneli visiting the seperate art space “La Serre” which features Quadrapop Lane.
Quadrapop has been building in Second Life since 2007. In RL Quadrapop has a background in Art History and Graphic Design and is a mixed media artist.
Fascinated by the possibilities that virtual creation provides for the artist, Quadrapop focused on those aspects that are least like physical real life. Utilising phantom prims, alpha textures, one way transparency, flexible prims, lack of gravity, and the lighting and surface effects created by projected lights when combined with normal and specular layers, quadrapop creates contemplative abstractions that are not possible (or very difficult/costly) to create in RL.
(taken from the artists notecard)

La Maison d’Aneli January/February 2020 – Quadrapop Lane

You enter a colourful space filled with light. I had the impression of being in the control room of a spaceship. Everywhere you look you see different colours, different objects. Quadrapop plays with light and effects and with the transparancy of phantom objects. There’re two levels at “La Serre” connected by a spiral staircase. And there’s a teleport pad that leads you to a labyrinth made of transperent coloured walls and surrounded by something that could be the space – or just abstract art. It was fun exploring and experiencing it.

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 another great exhibition and thank you to all artists. The current exhibition runs until February 18th. Enjoy your visit, if you go there yourself.

Simploring 2019 (108) La Maison d’Aneli – November 2019

The newest joined exhibition at La Maison d’Aneli was opened on Wednesday, October 30th. This time Aneli (Aneli Abeyante) features the art of Beertje Beaumont, IndigoClaire, Norton Lykin, Gitu Aura, Lala Lightfoot, Senka Beck and Treacle Darlandes.

Once again I visited the exhibtion before the official opening as it fitted better into my plans. I started with a visit to ” La Serre” : Undiscovered Planet, created by Treacle Darlandes. It is a 3D art installation filling one room. You enter a purple fantasy world. The sky is glowing in orange, the trees have glowing yeallow and red leaves (like in Autum), the flower glow and a butterfly brightens up the scenery. The background is sharp and edgy – an undiscovered planet.
Treacle Darlandes is from the UK. She joined Second Life over 13 years ago and is engaged in assistance for new residents, depression support, an over-40 group and other things – like art. She enjoys creating art in Second Life to relax and loves colour and movement. She likes to feel immersed in her art, and hopes that others like it too. I felt attracted by Treacle’s undiscovered planet.

La Maison d’Aneli – November 2019 – Treacle Darlandes

Right when you enter La Maison d’Aneli the first area is occupied by Lala Lightfoot’s art. Lala has been creating art all her life and has been influenced by the colors, pattern and shapes in nature and the amazing works of great artists. She loves putting these elements together in different ways to create art that is entertaining, thoughtful and fun.
Lala Lightfoot is an art educator from the US. She’s in Second Life for over 12 years and is known as a painter favoring watercolors, acrylics and mixed media. I personally think that her style is unique.

La Maison d’Aneli – November 2019 – Lala Lightfoot

Beertje Beaumont is an artist in RL and a jeweler in SL. She’s in Second Life for almost 13 years. Considering her name I suspect that she’s Dutch.
At La Maison d’Aneli she shows her first paintings. She used acryl paint with a coarse bottom layer of sand and gesso, to have a special effect. The corner with Beertje’s paintings has dark walls and thus the colours of her paintings look stronger. The paintings have complex structures that makes them intriguing the longer you look at them. I like how Beertje’s corner at La Maison d’Aneli is decorated not only with the little meeting area in the middle next to a piano but also with glass sphere suspended from the ceiling.

La Maison d’Aneli – November 2019 – Beertje Beaumont

Indigo (IndigoClaire) is from the Czech Republic city of Prague. She joined Second Life about 9 years ago and had already several art projects and exhibtionsin SL. At La Maison d’Aneli she created a room all in white with a box in the center and big artful pictures at the walls. I think all the pictures were taken in Second Life and processed with special effects like blurring some parts. The whole compostion of the geometry, some colourful spheres on the floor and the pictures which are seen from different angles is very interesting and invites you stay a while.

La Maison d’Aneli – November 2019 – IndigoClaire

Gitu Aura, another artist who is in Second Life for already almost 10 years called her corner of the exhibtion at La Maison d’Aneli “Embrace my dreams”. She says about herself: “Art is very important to me, I can’t live without it. It’s like a passion for me, the motor which drives me, my reason for being and never staying at the same point. I love to create and share it with people.
Photography is one of my favorite hobbies, what awakens my soul…I just adore to sit and listen to music while I am relaxed and my phantasy fly in the Photoshop. Is the process I never know how will finish, that’s the magic of the moment and creativity…and I am always happy to share what I did create, as Art should speak itself…as the silent poetry..the moment to feel…

La Maison d’Aneli – November 2019 – Gitu Aura

Senka Beck is another SL veteran with far over 12 years. She sees SL as her playground where she enjoys interacting with peeps and prims, where she captures and releases her inner being.
The work presented here at La Maison d’Aneli is titled Detoxomania, Reboot. It is a combination of different forms of art, a light installation, that covers all walls, the floor and the ceiling. Senka plays with effects and with sound and the pictures at the walls look technical, something like circuits, fractals and other geometric forms and they change their colour and hence the impressions of them. Get immersed!

La Maison d’Aneli – November 2019 – Senka Beck

Finally I visited the room with the art from Norton Lykin. Norton is with over 12 years also a SL veteran. He’s living in Denmark and took up his art activities after his retirement as a system programmer. He sees life as a journey “The ideas we have and the history we tell. Reality is not a scientific truth but as we understand it in every given moment.
His pictures at La Maison d’Aneli work with shadows, colours and shades: Everybody will see different stories or objects in them and that is Norton’s intention.

La Maison d’Aneli – November 2019 – Norton Lykin

Thank you Aneli for another great exhibition and thank you to all artists. The current exhibition should be open until End of November 2019. Enjoy your visit, if you go there yourself.

Simploring 2019 (97) La Maison d’Aneli in September / October 2019

I got an invite from Aneli Abeyante to the opening of the new joined exhibition at La Maison d’Aneli on September, 18th. As I knew that I couldn’t attend that day, I visited the exhibition already on Tuesday, Sepembter 17th.

The exhibition presents the art from Eylinea, Olympes Rhode, Desy Magic, Megan Prumier, Akim Alonzo, Jolieelle Parfort and Moki Yuitza

I started my tour through the exhibition with Eylinea’s art. Eylinea is quite new in Second Life, she joined in May 2018, and got in contact to recognized artists who generously transmitted their art to her. Since then she has been exploring with great pleasure the different artistic possibilities of SL: painting, photography, sculpture and even soon tattoo creation. At La Maison d’Aneli she shows some animated 3D paintings and scultures. Unfortuantely you can’t really take a picture as you caputre just one single moment, but then at least the picture is unique.

Eylinea’s art at La Maison d’Aneli

The exhibition part of Olympe (Olympes Rhode) is named “Trip to Normandy: 2019/1944 – RL & SL pictures”. Olympe says about herself: “Passionate by words and images, Second Life has allowed me to give a new dimension to my passions, poetry and photography ….. My photos tell a story. They reflect the emotions within me,  with either happiness or sadness, explosion of joy or dismay, they always are created with the same intense passion.
The exhibition at La Maison d’Aneli shows pictures of a trip to Normandy in 2019 and mixes with some on 1944, when the Normandy was the landing site of the allied troups liberating Europe and was the site of many battles.

Olympe’s art at La Maison d’Aneli / lower right shows one of two sculptures from Mistero Hifeng that are exhibited in the area of Olympe’s corner at La Maison d’Aneli

Desy Magic is a passionate photographer and she has a unique and colourful style in which she processes her pictures and makes them real eye catchers. You can still see the original motif yet the abstract forms or objects added to her picture are a dominant element, intriguing.

Desy’s art at La Maison d’Aneli

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. The exhibited pictures at La Maison d’Aneli are in black and white and they are quite dark. And they are shown at a dark corner of La Maision d’Aneli. By this artistic light setting, the women shown in her pictures are highlighted and get a mysterious aura. Amazing what can be done with light.

Megan’s art at La Maison d’Aneli

The art of Akim (Akim Alonzo) is in a seperate room. The floor, the ceiling and the walls are black, green letter, symbols and figures run along all walls and are the only source of light beside the exhibited pictures. This setting fits to the name of this exhibition part at La Maison d’Aneli – “The Matrix”. The pictures are loosely based on the cult movie The Matrix. A metaphor for a world of people trapped in a simulated, virtual reality that has many aspects in common with the Secondlife world.
Akim is a traveller and photographer in Second Life and he owns “The Itakos Art Gallery” and runs a website.

Akim’s art at La Maison d’Aneli

Jolie (Jolieelle Parfort) work in virtual/digital art is a new direction in a long art career. “After finding myself retired I discovered an extremely enjoyable virtual world with my new computer and became immersed in Second Life.  In this world the landscapes and tableaux available seem never ending and various;  there is always a new scene or setting to challenge me and to capture.

Jolie’s art at La Maison d’Aneli

Moki Yuitza is in SL for over 11 years now: “From the beginning I found myself more comfortable working with SL basic prims. With simple, basic shapes, and some manipulation possibilities, I can create almost everything. Although I appreciate the possibilities offered by the meshes, I continue to create exclusively using prim base. In RL I am an architect and in this metaverse I found the possibility to realize my idea of ​​space and my architectural fantasy, as well as to share it with other people.
When you visit her art installation “La SERRE” at La Maison d’Aneli make sure that your set your windlight to midnight, otherwise you’ll be blinded by the light. Moki is inviting us to sit down, to watch the moving and ever changing ojects and light, to mediate and to be drawn into her installation.

Moki’s art at La Maison d’Aneli

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 another great exhibition and thank you to all artists. I don’t know how long the current exhibition will last, but I guess that you have at least a month to see it. Enjoy your visit, if you go there yourself.

Simploring 2019 (56) La Maison d’Aneli in May

On Wednesday, May 15th, a new exhibtion was opened to the public at La Maison d’Aneli. This month the gallery presents insights in the art of Giovanna Cerise, Mathilde Vhargon, Vroum Short, DELALUNE Ella, McGrafite and Tshirtkikill Straaf.

La Maison d’Aneli May 2019 – the entrance hall with Aneli Abeyante’s chessmen

The entrance hall of La Maison d’Aneli is used to display Aneli Abeyante’s own art, a chess in black, red and white with abstract, modern chessmen. You get to the exhibition of the above mentioned artists by teleporting from the entrance hall.

Vroum Short’s installation “Mirror” and Giovanna Verise’s Installation are 3D installations, while the other 4 artists display their pictures.

La Maison d’Aneli May 2019 – Marisa Camelo (mcgrafite)

McGrafite’s passion is drawing. The biography distributed by Aneli just reveals a bit about McGrafite “Since I was born that I always loved to draw, drawing is part of me, it is my therapy, my passion …
I started to make graphite portraits, through photography, about 10 years ago and I never stopped! I started drawing full-time making portraits, other kinds of realistic drawings and designs for tattoos.” I didn’t find an avatar of this name and the exhibited art was uploaded by Aneli. Hence asked Aneli and she told me that she got the pictures from McGrafite, who has problems connecting to SL at the moment.
I went to McGrafite’s gallery. Strangely enough, I could see Marisa Camelo (mcgrafite)’s profile there (when inspecting the exhibited art) – but not using the search function. McGrafite is Portugese and there’s more information about her and her art on her website.

La Maison d’Aneli May 2019 – Mathilde Vhargon

Mathilde Vhargon is “a former classical musician, she began making sculptures in Second Life 10 years ago, and soon became more focused on digital painting, which she creates using only Gimp and ArtRage programmes“. She loves strong colours and abstract forms. At La Maison d’Aneli her part of the exhibtion extends over 2 floors. The lower floor, shows colour compositions, some slightly reminding me of kaleidoscopes, the upper floor presents pictures of geometric abstraction. In my personal opinion the latter are quite impressive.
The notecard with Mathilde’s biography that you can grab at the exhibtion also lists her other current exhibtions in Second Life (quite some).
Remark: You can identify her art by searching the leaf in each of Mathilde’s pictures, it’s her kind of signature.

La Maison d’Aneli May 2019 – Giovanna Cerise

Giovanna Cerise is not unknow to me. I visited Flash Back / Flash Forward in 2017 (read Simploring 2017 (42) Flash Back / Flash Forward), in 2016 I visited her LEA-installation Monochrome (read here) and in April 2015 I saw Otium (read here: A visit to Otium). Giovanna is an Italian literature teacher and musician. In Second Life she’s active since Ende of 2008 and had many exhibtions and installations. She particpated in the LEA program participations and her list of activities and appearances is long. For more information look up her website.
The installation shown at La Maison d’Aneli has no specific name. It was inspired by poetry of Alda Merini “… one lies on the back of the world and feels…
The sculptures are no that easy to see when you’re too close to them, the room is filled with geometric forms, mostly transparent blocks and stairs. Between them you find the sculptures, or what appears to be a sculpture when you look not too close … they are puzzle pieces like the complex world around them, but then they are also individuals nonetheless.

La Maison d’Aneli May 2019 – Lune (delalune ella)

Lune (delalune ella) is French and she’s in Second Life since 2007. Her art is shown on 2 floors, one floor for her colourful kaleidoscope pictures, one for her photographs. Her kaleidoscopes animate to dive into them, to explore them, her photographs radiate peace and serenity.

La Maison d’Aneli May 2019 – Tshirtkikill Straaf

Behind Tshirtkikill Straaf in Second life is the French graphic artist Stéph Para. His work is kind of bizarre, funny and mostly just in black and white, hence if he uses colour it catches your attention much more. There are two websites (la bonne anime and la bonne illustration) where you could get more information, supposed your understand more French than I do.

La Maison d’Aneli May 2019 – Vroum Short

Vroum Short is a French SL artist since 2007. She created VeGeTaL PLaNet, about which I read already and which is on my list of places to visit. According to the artist notecard that I got at 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
The installation a La Maison d’Aneli is called “Mirror” and should be seen with your windlight set to midnight. The reflections of the geometric objects are amazing, it is a world of itself that you can walk through.

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 another great exhibition and thank you to all artists. Enjoy your visit – I did.

Simploring 2019 (28) Rey’s Gallery

When I visited the current exhibition at La Maison d’Aneli on February 28th (read Simploring 2019 (30) La Maison d’Aneli March) I came across Reycharles, who is one of the artists who’s work is exhibited at La Maison d’Aneli.

Impressions from Rey’s Gallery (1)

Along with the exhibition Reycharles wrote a notecard about himself and his work:
I’ve been in sl since 2012. I’ve spent a lot of my time traveling around this world. In the real world I work with digital and 3D graphics. I really like creating and manipulating to experiment with color and effect forms both in 2D and in 3D.
This is part of my work in the real world and I thought I’d bring it to SL too, so I’ve just started making exhibitions, I also have a gallery where I exhibit my artistic works, originals and reproductions.
My mind is open to all the suggestions of fantasy, instinct and emotions of the moment. I also love decorative objects, thinking that art and design are a beautiful couple

Impressions from Rey’s Gallery (2)

In particular Reycharles sculptures, be it human statues or geometric forms or fantasy objects caught my eye at La Maison d’Aneli and spontaneously I decided to visit “Rey’s Gallery” the very next day. Rey’s Gallery is dominated by his 3D objects, his sculptures. The landing is at a court in front of the entrance to the gallery building – and the court is used as an extra exhibition area.

Inside I found some of the exhibits from La Maison D’Aneli, like the hand with holes or the ballerina. But most of the objects were new to me. I was in particular intrigued by the “Yes and No” sculpture and by some of the stylised female bodies. As Reycharles predominantly makes scultpures in white or in one single colour the row of 5 apples in different strong colours on the 2nd floor is outstanding also.

Impressions from Rey’s Gallery (3)

All of Reycharles sculptures can be purchased in Rey’s Gallery itself or at his store on the marketplace. I’m pretty sure, that I’ll come across his art again. For sure in my own garden as I purchased the “Yes and No” sculpture.

Simploring 2019 (27) La Maison d’Aneli March

I missed the opening of the current joined exhibtion at La Maison d’Aneli on Wednesday, 27 February, but I visited the day after. In March La Maison d’Aneli presents the work of 6 artists: Reycharles, Jeaneos7, Serena Parisi, Rofina Bronet, Kiana Jarman and Oema.

At “La Maison d’Aneli” March 2019

I started my tour through the exhibtion with Reycharles, who is in Second Life since 2012. In RL he works with digital and 3D graphics. He likes creating and manipulating to experiment with colour and effect forms both in 2D and in 3D – and he brings it to Second Life as well. Besides presenting his work in exhibtions, Reycharles also has an own gallery (here). At La Maison d’Aneli we see a variety of 3 D scupltures together with graphics and get some insight into his work.

Reycharles at “La Maison d’Aneli” March 2019

Jean (Jeaneos7) joined Second Life in 2016 and began making profile pictures of friends in 2018. Soon he opened a photo studio named J7Studios, that also serves as a permanet gallery nowadys. Besides portraits he also loves to take picture of beautiful landscapes. At La Maison d’Aneli we see an excerpt of his work.

Jean (Jeaneos7) at “La Maison d’Aneli” March 2019

Serana Parisi describes herself as an explorer in RL and SL. Being in SL for more than 12 years, she still likes the joy, the simplicity, her friends of course and always to discover even more in SL (in this relation she’s like myself). The photography allows her to share her life. In the exhibition at La Maison d’Aneli she shows picture of her journey to Vietnam. She encountered people who’s smile and emotions intrigued her. She’s enthusiastic about the explosion of colours, which she thinks characterises this country. And her pictures serve as a proof that.

Serana Parisi at “La Maison d’Aneli” March 2019

Rofina Bronet is in Second life for 11 years and decribes herself as a dreamer, maker, thinker, crazy, charming, with inner fire, open mindeds and much more. Two years ago she started with videos and pictures, she mixed pictures and video material recorded in Second Life. Her videos contain 3D effects, special effects and supports the music and art scene in Second Life. At La Maison d’Aneli you can watch her video of art installations of other artists like Bryn Oh or from festivals and other events. Besides that you see related pictures of these installations and events.

Rofina Bronet at “La Maison d’Aneli” March 2019

Kiana Jarman also joined Second Life 11 years ago. She simply loves to take pictures in Real Life as well as in Second Life. She says: “Photography is like writing with light, making music with shades, such as paint with time and seeing with love“. The pictures exhibited at La Maison d’Aneli transport a lot of emotions. You can sense the passion that went into creating them.

Kiana Jarman at “La Maison d’Aneli” March 2019

Oema is quite renowed as an artist in Second Life. I visited her sim Enchanted Art back in 2017 where Oema presented not just her art (read Simploring 2017 (34) Enchanted Art). Enchanted Art is no longer existent. Oema said about herself “I am an artist, an art curator, an art blogger and a magazines writer … so I am an art passionate:-). Art is a very important part of my life, one of the best ones“.
The exhibition at La Maison d’Aneli shows the broad spectrum of Oema’s art. She loves virtual landscapes, she tries to make them look realistic and she loves surreal art. At La Maison D’Aneli her pictures are shown in a dark environment, that gets a mystic atmosphere by moving sparkles of lights. Oema also writes about art in her blog Virtuality.

Oema at “La Maison d’Aneli” March 2019

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 this new joined exhibtion, Aneli. And thank you to all artists. It’s really worth a visit.
