Art in Second Life 2022 (50) “Yellow is the color” by Nils Urqhart @ Art Gallery Rill’Arts

I got another invitation from Nils Urqhart. This time he has opened a new exhibition at his own gallery, at Art gallery Rill’Arts.
The title made me curious: “Yellow is the color” … and I were not disappointed.

Art gallery Rill’Arts is a three story building with a glass front. The exhibition “Yellow is the color” consists of around 25 pictures and of course the dominating colour is yellow. There’re three main themes: flowering rapeseed fields, single yellow blossoms and yellow blooming bushes or trees.  On the ground floor are mostly the rapeseed fields, on the 2nd floor the single blossoms and on the third floor the blooming bushes or trees.

Nils has an eye for the right motif. The photos were taken in Dombes and in the French Alps in France. They almost convey the Summer heat and the the smell. And for me they also conjured a smile in my face as I love the Summer and large flowering rapeseed fields.

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 “Yellow is the color” you visit a “real” exhibtion in a virtual environment. Thank you Nils for another great exhibition.

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.

Art in Second Life 2022 (44) “The Forgotten Worlds” by Nils Urqhart @ United Artists of SL

I got an invitation from Nils Urqhart to see his newest exhibtion at United Artist of SL in the Galerie Principale. The exhibition is titled “The Forgotten Worlds“.

In “The Forgotten Worlds” Nils presents 30 photographs taken in the French Alps. The pictures create a strong contrast to the mordern Galerie Principale, a building that would fit into a Sci-Fi environment. The Galerie Principale building is open at the front and has 3 floors. On the first glance the pictures are small compared to the building. You have to get closer to them to really see them and to  experience them.

All pictures are taken well above or at the treeline. Nils has an eye for almost unreal scenes. Clouds that nestle against the mountain slopes and obscure the peaks. In other pictures, the peaks are above the clouds and you can see how the sun illuminates them. You get an impression of this “forgotten” world, a world mostly unseen by humans, a world of its own. On the other hand this world is stunning and beautiful.

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.

Art in Second Life 2022 (6) Mineral World by Nils Urqhart @ Love&Love Art Gallery

I got an invitation from Nils Urqhart to see his newest exhibition at Love&Love Art Gallery, that opened Monday, January 10th.

This time Nils presents new Real Life photographs pictures. He named the exhibition “Mineral World”. It is a world of stones, rocks, scree, stone arches, some grass and sometimes a few trees.

The exhibition comprises about 20 pictures, all taken originally in the French Alpes. They show a meagre mountain world. Although none of Nils’ pictures is a close-up picture, there are a few where you have to look twice to recognise that it is a landscape and not an close-up or abstract picture. what is missing is the third dimenison, that you get when you see a shadow like in the picture that Nils selected for the exhibition poster (my favourite picture of this exhibition). All pictures shown at Love&Love Art Gallery can be purchased at the exhibition.

Art in Second Life 2021 (124) “And darkness came” by Nils Urqhart @ United Artists of SL

I got an invitation from Nils Urqhart to see his newest exhibtion at United Artist of SL, that opened Thursday, December 16th.

This time Nlis doesn’t present Real Life pictures, but images he created from his RL photos by modifying the lights and moods. “And darkness came” is a cold universe, plunging visitors into a dark and eerie atmosphere where only a few dim lights appear on the snow and ice of the mountains.

The exhibtion comprises about 35 pictures, all taken originally in the French Alpes. They show huts, mountains and rocks, all dived into a blue-ish, foggy atmosphere. The darkness forces the spectator to have a closer look to see the details of the pictures. And if you have been in the mountains at Winter, then you know that the light and the atmosphere can be like this – hard to see any details.
