Simploring 2018 (84) A new joined exhibition at La Maison d’Aneli

At La Maison d’Aneli a new joined exhibition of 5 artists has been opened on Wednesday, September 26th. It features the art of: ChrisTower Dae, Solkide Auer & Magda Schmidtzau, Kirle Adamski and Dantelicia Ethaniel. All artists have a different focus which makes the exhibition varied and enjoyable. When you enter La Maison d’Aneli you get a folder offered which contains some information about the artists. I used some of this information in my following text.

Kirle Adamski, is a selftaught artist from Denmark who started painting in 1997 and had her first exhibition in Denmark in 2000. Kirlie expresses herself in strong colours. She says that she never decides a motive before painting, there’s no plan, in the end the painting expresses herself at the time it was made. Kirlie’s paintings are in watercolour and copied from RL paintings. She had several exhibitions in RL as well as in SL.

Dantelicia Ethaniel is a French plastic artist and fashion designer in first life, Dantelicia has embraced the virtuality of Second Life almost 10 years ago. She got passionate about SL photography early on and uses it to create a bridge with traditional painting effects such as water colors or acrylic she practiced in her everyday life.

Solkide Auer tries to express his ideas through different sculptures. He started creating geometrical shapes then used more difficult techniques such as “the shade”, which gives the possibility to manipulate a unique prim in a very complex way. As a result he obtained unexpected and different shapes quite unlike the ones anyone can find around. Solkide Auer’s art has been exhibited at several galleries and museums within SL but he has also transfered his art into RL exhibitions be it printed or be it shown as 3D on monitors.

At La Maison d’Aneli Solkide’s art work is part of an exhibition named “Might of Soul” that features pictures of Maddy (Magda Schmidtzau) who is a passionate phortographer in RL. In Second Life she plays with the possibilites of this virtual world and tries to convey the magic that she sees. Maddy had already quite a lot exhibitions within SL. Maddy’s pictures exhibitied at La Maison d’Aneli are both, RL pictures and artificially processed pictures taken in Second Life. The combination of Solkide’s geometrical shapes and shades with the pictures of Maddy makes this exhibtion unique.

ChrisTower Dae is an Italian photographer. Chris shows at La Maison D’Aneli portrait pictures taken in Second Life, mainly female. The pictures impress by their perfection as well as by the facial expression. The avatars have a unique soul and the viewer can sense the emotions transfered with the portraits. Chris places the face mostly at a side of his pictures, not showing the whole head which might contribute to the facination of the portraits.

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 great joined exhibtion, Aneli. I enjoyed my visit a lot.

Simploring 2017 (40) Another World

Saturday, May 27th, late afternoon, I decided to make a simploring tour. I picked “Another World by Solkide Auer” from the Second Life desination guide. The title already reveals a lot about this simploring tour. I went into another world, created by Solikide Auer. He writes about himself: “I’m italian  and I am a citizen of SecondLife. Everybody has a dream and I can give a form to your dream as I am a builder and artist too, as I create sculptures.” The landmark description gives more information: “Another World is a flight in a pure geometric ambient where shapes and colours try to give a momentary lapse of relax. Nothing else than stay in peace with yourself.
Another World consists of different geometric forms piled up into the height. The forms are all different, stars, spheres, spirals, cubes, bows and grids. There no sky, the enviroment is black and dark and all forms are artificially illuminated in different and constantly changing colours. No viewing angle, no colour composition can be easily reproduced. Everyone sees another world different, as a personal expierence. There are 3 ways to explore Another World. You can take a little  spaceship, a flying sofa which will lift you up to the top of Another World and back down. This roundtrip takes about 15 minutes. During the flight up and down you can relax, enjoy the lights, the different impressions, you fly peacefully through space, time, lights and forms. You get views from inside of the geometric forms as well as from outside. The second way exploring is taking one of the seven doors next to where you land. Each door teleports you to another part of Another World from where you can walk or fly around and enjoy the view. And the third way to explore it is to simply fly.
I was very impressed by Another World. Of course I took tons of pictures, so what I selected for this entry is just a small excerpt, a teaser. It is another way to relax. I visited already many lovely sims, where you just relax by admiring the (virtual) nature. Another World is also very relaxing and peaceful. In particular the flying sofa tour provides great impressions that you can simply enjoy without being activ.
Thank you Solkide for your artful installation. I enjoyed it a lot.
If you want to see more of Solikide visit his blog Solkide Auer, where you can learn more about him and his art. There are also some videos (taken within Second Life) to watch in this blog.
