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.

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. He also provided quite a list of potential contact opportunities besides his webpage: Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

I like Nils Urqhart (Paul Maurice) RL pictures. They are kind of a connection element between RL and SL. With “Mineral World” you visit a “real” exhibtion in a virtual environment – and all safe without any restrictions *winks*. Thank you Nils for another great 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.
