Diary 2021 (100) July 28th/29th Two relaxed days

Wednesday, July 28th, I was inworld in the morning and looking for a gallery, installation or sim to write about it. But I didn’t find anything to write about, roamed around a bit and logged off again. In the afternoon I stayed at Heavy bondage Club and read profiles, One led me to a private place, a surprisingly large sim and naughty me explored it as well as the gear that I found there. And I made one picture of naughty me *winks*

During the afternoon and later at early night I had several conversations with potential subs, we will see if anything developes from these. Finally I stayed at Heavy Bondage Club again where Mistress Jenny joined me. We spent the night at Heavy Bondage Club and summoned Faye and slave Holly to us. We chatted mostly amoung ourselves. I had made plans for slave Holyl and Faye, a session that we might do in the nearer future and I tested the restrictions involved with the plan on slave Holly and Faye.

Time flies when you chat and have fun and as Mistress had an early start the next day we returned home and Mistress left to bed. Faye left also. And slave Holly stayed with me while I was writing the diary. Anything else? Yes, Flo is still hospitalized and sent and update. Good recovery, Flo!

Thursday, July 29th, I was inworld in the afternoon and had a short, nice roleplay with a sub who I met at Puerto Esclava. I also visited La Maison d’Aneli again as one of the artists there, Marylooooe, invited me over to her part of the exhibition. She had read my blogpost about the exhibtion (read here) and wanted to present me one of her pictures. I picked one that will go into my private art collection at home. Thank you, Maryloooe.

I roamed a bit through the clubs when I returned later in the afternoon and was at Heavy Bondage Club, when slave Holly came inworld. I summoned ehr to me, so that she could decorate me. And before I left for dinner I used my slave slut as my toilet.

Mistress Jenny and I had a relaxed night. We caught up with our mutual news at Carnal Intentions with slave Holly decorating us. She was celebrating her 3 months collaring day, as she wouldn’t be around on the day itself (July 30th). Mistress was approached by Steffi (Steffi Darkwatch) who knelt at her feet. And later Faye joined us as well. We spent the night just chatting amoung is.

Art in Second Life 2021 (68) La Maison d’Aneli Summer 21

On Wednesday, July 28th, a new exhibtion was opened at La Maison d’Aneli: “Summer 21”. It features the artwork of Giovanna Cerise, Marylooooe, Elodiecasa Dragovar, Deyanira Yalin, lo01ner01, Mareea Farrasco and Fly Kugin (flyqueeen).

For this exhibtion Aneli Abeyante, owner and curator of La Maison d’Aneli, has a special gift for the visitors. She offers a (attachable or displayable inworld) SL booklet that shows examples of the artwork of the participating artists on 2 pages for each artist. Hence – I could have refrained from taking pictures. You find the booklet at the end of the main hall, next to the event area for the opening event. It is displayed at the seating groups.

The event area is also the space where Fly Kugin (flyqueeen) has her exhibition space.
Fly Kugin (flyqueeen), as a live violin performer, is streaming into Second Life from Istanbul, since September 2019. She’s performing improvisation, Jazz & Rock genres, musicals & soundtracks from different time periods from various artists. But Fly also likes to spend her time taking pictures of landscapes and playing with them on photoshop. And she is still learning different techniques.

At the event area Fly showcased some of her pictures, all of them were taken in Second Life and processed afterwards to make them look like oil paintings. The combiantion of art and Second Life offers great opportunities for artists. Fly also gave a violin concert on the opening event. Fly has an own website with more information and a flickr account.

Giovanna Cerise is not unknow to me. The last time I came across her art was in May 2019 at La Maison d’Aneli (read here). Before 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.

Giovanna Cerise used her space at La Maison d’Aneli to showcase her “Doll’s house”. It is a space main held in black and white with clear structures that is partly in 3D and party in 2D (but looks 3D). The space has several houses, more a Doll’s village. And there are dolls, I’d rather say ballerinas or dancers. The dolls are stylised, performing alone or as couples in front of the houses or on the open space. There’s quite some to discover viewing at Giovanna Cerise’s installation from different viewing angles.

It is the first time that I came across the artist Marylooooe, She is in Second Life for 5 years and had several small and two larger exhibitions in favor of “Feed a smile” and the “Parkinson foundation”.

Marylooooe set up a 4 story gallery building in her skybox at La Maison d’Aneli. She named her exhibtion “Art of me – coynty art”. Marylooooe uploaded her RL artwork into Second Life. All of her art is very colourful, strong and expressive colours. On the four floors Marylooooe grouped her pictures. The ground floor shows some abstract pictures along with pictures in which you can recognize an animal, a goat? The 2nd floor is dedicated to flowers an abstact pictures, which could also be flowers because of how colourful they are. On the 3rd floor are some pictures showing a cow or a cow’s face. And finally the 4th foor is used to showcase some landscapes, towns and villages. For all of her pictures you need imagiantion, you have to connect with them to see the details beside the colours. Marylooooe wrote about her skybox in the accompanying notecard: “All my pictures exist in the original in rl. This exhibition country art is based on an idea originated when a friend asked: do you paint cows too, why not, and so i got down to work. A series of works was created and I hope you will have as much fun looking at them as I had painting them.” (from the accompanying notecard)

Elodiecasa Dragovar is also a new artist for me. She’s in Second Life since 2010. Art is part of her life, she started getting lessons in art aged 9. Since 13 years Elodiecasa lives in Morocco. In the accompanying notecard as well as on a board in her skybox at La maison d’Aneli she wrote about herself: “I don’t consider myself as an artist but a passionate person. I love art in all forms, I touch everything. Art is a part of my life, it’s a need

Her skybox is quite packed with pictures. All of them are imported into Second Life from RL pictures as far as I could gather. Elodiecasa uses all kind of techniques for her art and thus we get a broad picture of her artwork, which ranges from abstract alcohol ink pictures to acrylic portraits, from watercolour pictures of villages to abstract oil pictures. The variety is impressive and I couldn’t categorize her art at all.

Deyanira Yalin has been in Second Life since 2007. Her creations started with oils and acrylics shown at exhibitions in Mexico City, and has continuously expanded to incorporate other media: “As a graphic designer, the influence of Second Life has help me to embrace the digital art form, which culminated in several exhibits currently displayed in Second Life. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I believe that my art is the product of cumulative dreams and visualization.” (taken from the accompanying notecard)

Deyanira Yalin’s skybox at La Maison d’Aneli is a dark blue box with a 3D object in the center. Her pictures glow colourful in this environment. They range from animal faces over geometric forms, from portraits to flowers. Deyanira often uses different layers in her pictures so that you have to immerse into her art.
Deyanira has an own gallery in Second life and a store “DeyLyn Creations” on the marketplace,

Neel (lo01ner01) is in Second Life for 4 years.
Neel was born in the Himalayan foothills of India but now lives in the vast city of Mumbai. He is a passionate animal lover and cares greatly for the earth and all its creatures. A university graduate trained in business, Neel is also a student of poetry, art and literature in Hindi, English and Sanskrit. But he is especially interested in science. He combines abstract painting with imaginative birds, insects, and fish. Thus Neel explores the inner world of emotions and feelings, and how they connect to the natural world around us. His work draws on observation of the fine detail of the natural world together with an inner vision, which he paints as he sees with the eye of the spirit.” (from the accompanying notecard)

Neel (lo01ner01)’s skybox at La Maison d’Aneli is a light 2 story box held in white. His pictures are shown on the walls. Some pictures are abstract, others are a combination of abstract pictures with objects as described in the notecard. All of them seem to be RL pictures that were uploaded into Second Life.

Mareea Farrasco is “a SL photographer and the owner of IMAGO Land and IMAGO Art Galleries, a Nature, Art & Culture area open for visitors who love to explore, relax, take photos or admire the highly talented artists works displayed in the galleries… My photography covers a large field, from portraits to landscapes, from concrete to metaphoric images, from narrative scenes to still life pictures.” (from the accompanying notecard)
I visited IMAGO Land in April 21 and reported about my visit (read here)

Mareea’s skybox at La Maison d’Aneli is complete held in black in order to provide a contrast to pastel colours of her photographs, that mainly show landscapes along with only few details. I don’t know (but suspect) that Mareea porcesses her pictures a bit to make them a little bit blurry, which fits perfectly (no critique meant). Mareea proves the almost endless possibilities that Second Life offers for our creativity.
Mareea Farrasco’s pictures can also been seen at her flickr account.

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 inspired me.
