Art in Second Life 2022 (59) “Freaking Beauties” by Maloe Vansant at Artsville Gallery #1

Friday, June 24th, a new place for the arts has been opened – Artsville. Artsville consists of 3 galleries. The first exhibition at Artville is “Freaking Beauties” by Maloe Vansant.

The layout of the gallery space reminded me a bit of DixMix Gallery – 3 galleries, with space for around 10 pictures each and an event area in the center. The builder is Megan Prumier, who also built the DixMix Gallery.

“Freaking Beauties” shows pictures of – surprise – freaking beauties. The pictures are very colourful, most consisting of several layers. They focus on the kinkiness, yet the pictures are intriguing, not off putting. They invite the spectator to look for details. And the freaking beauties themselves look satisfied and proud. Each picture is an eye catcher!

Maloe Vansant joined Second Life in 2007, a new world for her who had never played games or joined any social network site: “After creating little Maloe, my barbie doll, my pixel soul, I discovered the possibility of making snapshots and I started to make a graphic diary of Maloe’s journey in Second Life, showing the emotions she experienced in this pixel world. I think I succeeded in doing this by using some post processing in Photoshop. I am not a woman of many words, I try to express myself, my feelings, my passion and probably my dark side through my pictures.
Maloe has also a flickr account where you can see more of her artwork.

The virtuality blog published an interview with Maloe Vansant by Violet Boa back in August 2021. Violet Boa wrote in the introducing text about Maloe:
Maloe belongs to the group of people who are strongly guided by feelings and she is blessed with ability to touch our souls with her photography.
With skillful game between light, shadow, color and composition she creates works that appeal to us not only on the quality level, but also write stories of life and with it catch our thoughts and hearts.

Artsville is owned by Vally Lavender-Prodigy (Valium Lavender). Artsville was created in collaboration the Art Korner blog, owned and founded by Frank Atisso.

Thank you Vally and Frank for creating Artsville and providing the space for the arts. Thank you Megan for building the gallery. And thank you Maloe for your art, I enjoyed my visit.

Art in Second Life 2022 (53) “made of memories” by Boudicca Amat at DixMix Gallery Lounge

At Dixmix Gallery Lounge a new exhibition has been opened on June 4th: “made of memories” by Boudicca Amat.

It is a small exhibition featuring just 8 portrait pictures of Boudicca. “made of memories” shows her, always in front of a red/brown neutral background, in all portraits but one she’s with red hair. Nontheless you have to look twice to see that it is one and the same person.  When you hoover your mouse over the pictures you get a thought, a title for each picture, for each memory – and memories form a personality. For example, right at the entrance Boudicca is shown wearing a Ukraine flag tattoo on her cheek and the title is: “… so very far from normal”. Try it with the other pictures …
It is a small but thoughtfully selected exhibition of portraits.

Impressions of “made of memories” by Boudicca Amat

I came across Boudicca Amat in August 2020 the first time, when I saw her small exhibition “5 Times Boudicca” at “The 22 Art Space in Bellisseria” (read here).
Boudicca is in Second Life amost 15 years. She writes about herself and her art in her profile:
I make pictures. I make them for my own amusement, they have no deep meaning,
I’m not trying to ‘say’ something – I use my mouth and my typing skills for that.
For me they are an exercise in arrangement, lighting and effects. Sometimes it works ……sometimes it doesn’t
And from the rest of her profile I can tell Boudicca loves to read, to talk and to write at least as much as making pictures. As for her pictures I can only say, I like them. You can find more of her art at her flickr account.

Thank you Dixmix for providing and curating the Dixmix Gallery Lounge. And thank you Violet Boa, who does the PR work for the Dixmix Gallery Lounge and who is always helpful for me to gather information.
Thank you for your art, Boudicca, I enjoyed my visit.

Art in Second Life 2022 (42) “un.seen” by Catherine Nikolaidis @ Dixmix Gallery Lounge

Tuesday, May 3rd, I got a message from Dixmix Source, who told me that he has a new place in SL, the Dixmix Gallery Lounge. Currently there’s an exhibition named “un.seen” by Catherine Nikolaidis. The exhibition was opened on April 30th.

Impressions of the Dixmix Gallery Lounge

The Dixmix Gallery Lounge is a place “where art meets hospitality” and “hospitality is an art“. It is an almost square building with an open roof through which you can look into the skies. The lounge offers countless opportunities to sit inside as well as outside. And you are surrounded by art. For example outside is a sculpture by Moki Yuitza named “gatto stiracchioso_dix” (stingy cat dix according to google translator). But also all the lights outside and the pictures inside add to the art experience at Dixmix Gallery Lounge. And for sure you can party at the lounge.

Impressions of “un.seen” by Catherine Nikolaidis @ Dixmix Gallery Lounge (1)

At least for right now the left side of the Dixmix Gallery Lounge building is used as an exhibition space for “un.seen” by Catherine Nikoladis . The exhibition consists of eight photographs in black&white, obviously taken in Second Life and processed with light and shadow effects into erotic art. All photographs show women in lingerie or naked, but never fully naked and always leaving enough room for the fantasies and stories of the spectator.
I saw Catherine Nikolaidis’ artful photographs when I visited “Soulportraits” at Itakos Art Gallery in March 2021 (read here). And I saw two exhibitions of her at DixMix Gallery in 2021 “Zwarwit” (read here) and “Quelqu’un” (read here).
The title “un.seen” could had two meanings. Firstly that the spectator sees new photographs never shown before, or secondly that the photographs themself show models or scenes where the model felt alone, not seen by anyone and able to be herself.

Impressions of “un.seen” by Catherine Nikolaidis @ Dixmix Gallery Lounge (2)

Catherine Nikolaidis was born in Greece and lives in the Netherlands. She joined Second Life in 2007 and photography is one of her passions. She writes about herself: “I believe strongly in sharing. I believe in communicating. I believe in creation and inspiration. I love black & white. I feel strongly for music.”
Catherine is a photographer, blogger & brand manager for several stores. She runs her own website and shares her work also on her flickr page.

I enjoyed my first visit to Dixmix Gallery Lounge, Dixmix’ new space for the art which is not only a gallery but also a place to for artists and art lovers to meet and to have fun. Thank you Dixmix and thank you Catherine for you art. And thank you Violet Boa, who does the PR work for the Dixmix Gallery Lounge and who is always helpful for me to gather information.

Art in Scond Life 2022 (20) Carpe Noctem by Maloe Vansant

I got an invitation to visit the lastest exhibition at DixMix Gallery, that opened February 19th: “Carpe Noctem” by Maloe Vansant.
Sometimes I come across an artist quite often in a short time, just to see nothing of the artist again for a longer time. Just recently I saw “Inside Maloe’s Mind” by Maloe Vansant, an exhibition that opened Sunday, February 6th (read about it here). I have written about Maloe’s art already before. The last time I came across her was in September 2021 when I visited her exhibition “Eternally” at DixMix Gallery (read here) that celebrated the tenth anniversary of Maloe Vansant and DixMix Source’s friendship.

Carpe Noctem” by Maloe Vansant is showcased in room Amalfia at DixMix Gallery. It consists of 10 pictures mainly showing female faces or parts of it. There is no obvious story that connect these pictures. Each seems to have an own story. I was particularly attracted by the picture that is also used for the exhibition poster. It is called “Faux Andy” and is shown with four different colour filters at the exhibtion. For me it is amazing how different the the face and the expression becomes with a different colour.

Maloe also plays with other effects, like blurring or with several layers of different pictures. She plays with softenting, light and also with strong colour contrasts. Another favourite of me at “Carpe Noctem” by Maloe Vansant is “The crack in the mirror”. Maloe’s art is passionate and full of details, the pictures provoke the visitor to spin stories around them.

Examples of “Carpe Noctem” by Maloe Vansant – Faux Andy / The truth is mine / just a shadow left / The crack in the mirror

Maloe Vansant joined Second Life in 2007, a new world for her who had never played games or joined any social network site: “After creating little Maloe, my barbie doll, my pixel soul, I discovered the possibility of making snapshots and I started to make a graphic diary of Maloe’s journey in Second Life, showing the emotions she experienced in this pixel world. I think I succeeded in doing this by using some post processing in Photoshop. I am not a woman of many words, I try to express myself, my feelings, my passion and probably my dark side through my pictures.
Maloe has also a flickr account where you can see more of her artwork.

The virtuality blog published an interview with Maloe Vansant by Violet Boa back in August 2021. Violet Boa wrote in the introducing text about Maloe:

Thank you Dixmix for providing and curating the DixMix Gallery, thank you Megan for building it and thank you Violet Boa for the PR. The exhibition “Carpe Noctem” by Maloe Vansant shall stay open until March, 6th.

Art in Second Life 2022 (18) Crescent Moon by Adwehe

At Nitroglobus Roof Gallery a new exhibition was opened Monday, February 14th: “Crescent Moon” by Adwehe

Exhibition Poster created by David Silence based on a work of Adwehe

The exhibition “Crescent Moon” consists of 17 pictures of Adwehe. Once again the outstanding exhibition space with it’s mirroring floor and open sky adds a lot to the experience of it. Adwehe added light effects, hence you should use the preset environment settings in your viewer (in Firestorm top menu “World” -> “Environment” -> “Use Shared Environment”.
Besides the cresent moon that you can see in the sky, balloons appear and vanish in all colours of the rainbow. Although they block your view on the pictures at times, they add to the atmosphere and produce a particular light – and hence are part of the artwork.

Adwehe wrote about “Crescent Moon” in the accompanying notecard:
The moon has a mysterious attraction and influence on living beings and on many other things.. As the moon makes its way around the earth, its light, a reflection of the sun, marks shapes differently than how they really are: they get distorted.
In the virtual world of SL we are literally beings made of light, we might be gods, yet are we? The light of the moon is the indirect sunlight, and we the avatars are indirectly our human selves wrapped up in our own virtual creations.
Working towards this exhibition has been a journey exploring a mix between photography and painting, the real and the virtual, bringing out changing moods in strong colors. A play with the elements in a virtual environment.

Impressions of “Crescent Moon” by Adwehe @ Nitroglobus Roof Gallery (1)

Actually Adwehe pictures are quite varied, some have very strong and expresive colours, others are just black and white studies – but all show females, faces, bodies and poses.

I visited the exhibition already on Sunday, February 12th, and learned that i was a bit early. Adwehe added mord 3D sculptures to the exhibition which further makes is more an art installation then just an exhibition. The figures play with spheres .. the moon … and the spheres in all colours of the rainbow have a source now. Very intriguing!

Impressions of “Crescent Moon” by Adwehe @ Nitroglobus Roof Gallery (2)

Adwehe is still quite new to Second Life, she joined 3 years ago. What I saw so far from Adwehe was always very different as she tired out herself and the artisitic opportunities that Second Life offers: “I explore an ever changing drawing using lines, light and darkness, strong color and whatever i can find to express. Creating depth and perspective expanding the dimensions of the exposition room, mostly abstract and animating. The theme’s I always come back to are everlasting change, transformation, (in)stability, chaos, light, color, movement, slowness and (different) ways looking at the world. I mix textures from my traditional RL drawings, acrylic and oil paintings inside and outside of SL to achieve abstract and figurative patterns, moods and motions

Impressions of “Crescent Moon” by Adwehe @ Nitroglobus Roof Gallery (3)

You can find more of Adwehe, mostly unedited landscapes and some art snaps, on her flickr page.
In the Virtuality blog you can find an interview by Violet Boa with Adwehe here.

Nitroglobus Roof Gallery is owned and curated by Dido Haas. She has a separete room at the gallery to showcase her own art, the main room is mostly dedicated to feature other artists.
Thank you, Dido for providing the space for the art and for enabling the exhibition “Crescent Moon” by Adwehe, which will be open for the public throughout February / begining March 2022. And thank you Adwehe for your great artwork. I enjoyed my visit.

Art in Scond Life 2022 (15) Inside Maloe’s Mind by Maloe Vansant

I got a hint from Violet Boa to visit “Inside Maloe’s Mind” by Maloe Vansant, an exhibition that opened Sunday, February 6th. I have written about Maloe’s art already before. The last time I came across her was in September 2021 when I visited her exhibition “Eternally” at DixMix Gallery (read here) that celebrated the tenth anniversary of Maloe Vansant and DixMix Source’s friendship. And DixMix is mentioned on exhibition poster for “Inside Maloes Mind” as he provided the music for the opening event.

Inside Maloe’s mind” is showcased at “In my Mind project Gallery”, the gallery space of A. (Ava Darkheart). With the invitation I got a quote from Maloe: “The journey in my Second Life, brought by pictures of my past, pictures that are close to my heart…

The exhibition space is in a sphere in the skies. The pictures are arranged on the inside of the sphere so you also have to look up to see them. All of them are a combination of texts and poems and the pictures itself. The text is faded in and out – hence you get something to begin with when you make up your own story to each picture. I just wonder, which was first, the picture or the text/poem?

Maloe Vansant joined Second Life in 2007, a new world for her who had never played games or joined any social network site: “After creating little Maloe, my barbie doll, my pixel soul, I discovered the possibility of making snapshots and I started to make a graphic diary of Maloe’s journey in Second Life, showing the emotions she experienced in this pixel world.

The “In my Mind project Gallery” is owned and curated by A. (Ava Darkheart). I met A. during my visit and she told me that her own art is exhibited on another level of her space. Hence I have something to add to my list.

Thank you A. for providing the space for the art, thank you Violet for the hint and thank you Maloe for another great exhibition, I enjoyed my visit. “Inside Maloe’s Mind” should stay open for visitors throughout February.

Art in Second Life 2022 (9) Dreams by Megan Prumier

I visited the latest exhibition at DixMix Gallery, that opened January 22th: “Dreams” by Megan Prumier.

I know Megan Prumier as builder or contributor to sims dealing with urban life, with mega cities, for example of Voodoo Land (read here), Kiyori (read here) and Skrunda-2 (read here). But I also covered some exhibtions of her like her part at La Maison d’Aneli’s exhibtion of September 2019 (read here). I know her as the builder of the DixMix Gallery where she also added to the interior design and where she contributes to exhibitions of other artists with her decorations.

Megan Prumier is a multimedia artist and resident in Second Life since 2010. Her skills are extended on the field of photography, mostly portraits on modern, minimal and even surreal Scenes.
“Dreams” by Megan Prumier at DixMix Gallery is a series of about 15 erotic pictures showing a model who exposes her body in a vintage setting of the 1920’s. Megan added elements of the setting to the exhibition space. The ceiling lights and the round seating furniture can be seen in the pictures and are used to decorate the exhibition space. Megan used light elements in form of bows and bands to further illuminate the space, to seperate her pictures and to provide an artistic light. The pictures were taken in Second Life and processed. The result is a fully fitting set up of art where space and featured pictures build a unit and allows the visitor for fully immerse into the pictures and the setting.
You can see Megan’s art also on her flickr page.

Examples and Imrepssions of “Dreams” by Megan Prumier at DixMix Gallery

Thank you Dixmix for providing and curating the DixMix Gallery, thank you Violet Boa for the PR. And thank you Megan for another impressing exhibtion. The exhibition “Dreams” by Megan Prumier shall stay open until mid February.

Art in Second Life 2022 (8) The secret life of mannequins and birds by Mrs. S.

I visited the latest exhibition at DixMix Gallery, that opened January 15th: “The secret life of mannequins and birds” by Mrs. S.

Mrs. S. (lauralar) wrote about her exhibtion in the accompanying notecard:
One of the first objects I used to make installations were mannequins. I found them at Kowloon. The concept ‘Travelling mannequins’ (2009) was about mannequins visiting sims like Furillen and Poetik or places, like a swimmingpool, castle and mountains. Now they are back in the Winterretraite.
Art is a big part in my life, it’s one of my dreams to have a huge wall in my house filled with art. As we all know, anything is possible in Second Life, so I made an art wall with some of my favorites and some of my own. It can be seen at the Birdhouse.
Birds have always fascinated me, it’s why I like to combine them with other objects. Thanks to great designers like Keke, Vespertine, Dust Bunny and so many more it’s possible to make stories with their items.
Some of the stories can be seen in the Birdhouse.
The Birdhouse and Winterretraite can be visited after the opening at Dixmix Gallery.
I hope you enjoy the exhibition as much as I enjoyed making it.
Mrs. S. (lauralar)

Mrs. S. (lauralar) is in Secondlife since 2012. She is on observer, photographer and decorator. The exibhition compromises 10 pictures, pictures of birds and other whimsical objects, pictures of her wall of art. Each picture has a name – and the name is exactly what you see. That made me smile. The four examples that I selected as an appetizer for you to visit the exhibtion are called: Not a party pooper, Wintermannequins, Treasures on the wall, Phalacrocoracidae on a chair

Examples of “The secret life of mannequins and birds” by Mrs. S. @ DixMix Gallery

You can see more of Mrs. S. art at her flickr page.

I went to the Birdhouse and the Winterretraite after visiting the exhibtion. Mrs. S. (lauralar) has her wall of art there and all the birds and whimsical objects that you can also see at the exhibtion – and more! It is a house full of art and details to discover. The exhibition was the perfect teaser to go there.

A visit to Mrs. S. (lauralar)’s Birdhouse and Winterretraite

Thank you Dixmix for providing and curating the DixMix Gallery, thank you Megan for building it and thank you Violet Boa for the PR. The exhibition “The secret life of mannequins and birds” by Mrs. S. shall stay open until begin/mid February.

Art in Second Life 2022 (5) The other side of Me… by Lika Cameo

I visited “The other side of Me…” by Lika Cameo, an exhibtion currently featured at DixMix Gallery in room “Amalfia”.

“The other side of Me….” shows about 10 couples of a painting and a photograph, representing the “me” and the other side of me. Each of these couple comes with a thought or a quote.

The pictures are arranged at the walls of the room and on the both sides of a central extra wall. When you look into the room, you can read on the small side of the wall “The other side of Me…”. And you also look directly at two picture couples at the opposed wall.
Right next to the entrance on the left side is a text, the lyrics of the song “Otherside” of the US American singer and songwriter Avi Kaplan. You can hear (and see) it on youtube here. It is the perfect introduction to this artful exhibition:

Emerald ivy, wrapped around my skin
Pulls me deeper, drags me back again
Tangle me up in your vines
Take my spirit, take my mind
Take me over to that other side

“The other side of Me…” by Lika Cameo – view at the entrance of room “Amalfi” at DixMix Gallery

On the right side of the entrance you find a short text of Lika with her thoughts about her exhibition “The other side of Me…”:
… There is always more than eyes can see and hands can feel… there is another world where i can be or i am… there is always another side of me…
Look in the mirror and see, look at your eyes and feel, you are about to enter another dimension of You …

The pictures are very artful and fanciful, true eycatchers that invite to immerse deeper into them. In particular with the provided quote to each couple of pictures. I began to ask myself “Do I have a similiar picture of the other side of Me? Do I desire to be the other Me? Do I want to go to the other Me?” It are these thoughts that let me immerse into Lika’s art. “The other side of Me…” is a well made exhibition that combines a poem and quotes with pictures and pantings to help the spectator to visualise them.

Impressions of “The other side of Me…” by Lika Cameo @ DixMix Gallery

Lika Cameo (Likacameo) is in Second Life for more almost 4 years. She’s passionate about art, photography, architecture, travel, yoga and people. Lika has a flickr account with more of her art and she has an own gallery in Second Life, the Cameo Art Studio.

Lika Cameo’s art is unique and displayed very thoughtfully. I enjoyed my visit. Thank you Dixmix for providing and curating the DixMix Gallery, thank you Megan for building it and thank you Viloet Boa for the PR. The exhibition “The other side of Me” by Lika Cameo shall stay open until end of January.

Art in Second Life 2021 (122) The Cold Moon by Dixmix Source

On Saturday, December 18th, the next new exhibtion at DixMix Gallery was opened in room “Abby” – “The Cold Moon” by Dixmix Source himself.

The theme of the exhibtion is quite obvious the moon and consequently a moon levitates in the entrance to the room.
The exhibtion features 11 pictures around the moon theme. Dixmix wrote a short text about the exhibition. The text can be found in one corner of the exhibtion room:

Since we started the “Moon parties Sound and Vision” with Aki, I was thinking to make a sweries of pictures of the Earth’s only natural satellite.
One day I dragged my loneliness in pixel in Bryn Oh’s new “Immersiva”
So inspiring.
As far as I can remember Bryn has always built mysterious, dark and unique installations on SL.
Today I have the pleasure to share with you here, my interpretation of the day of the full moon in December, called in some cultures “the cold moon” this new and last exhibition

Impressions of “The Cold Moon” by Dixmix Source @ DixMix Gallery (1) – “We are under the same sky, looking at the same moon” (upper right) / “When the wolves are silent only the moon howls” (lower right)

I asked Dixmix about the “Moon parties Sound and Vision” and he told me that he hosts these particles and music parties together with Aki (Akiko Kiyori) and he even provided a video of a party so that I could get an idea of these events. It seems that I have my “Aki”- weeks as I just recently saw “Clay & Seed” (read here) and “The Incal and the 4 Mazes” (read here) at Aki’s sims.
And Bryn Oh and her sim “Immersiva” are well known in the Second Life art scene.

The eleven pictures are fine artwork each. The pictures extend into the frames and all show the moon. DixMix named each picture and provides his thoughts with the name. The pictures all convey the melancholic atmosphere, that most of us experience when we look at the moon, particularly around this time of the year.

Impressions of “The Cold Moon” by Dixmix Source @ DixMix Gallery (2) – “Silent Night” and “The moon can’t breathe but can take my breath away”

Dixmix Source is in Second Life for more than 15 years. So far I know him as owner and curator of the DixMix Gallery and as a dj. I get regular invitations to the parties at DixMix Gallery (I could never attend so far as I’m always busy at those times).
Dixmix is a Belgian artist, a photographer, a director, a musician and more. You can see more of his pictures on his flickr page. And of course, Dixmix owns and curates the DixMix Gallery. Violet Boa cares about the PR. When I looked up Dixmix Source’s profile for writing this post, I came across an interview that DixMix had with Violet Boa and it reveals a lot more about him. Read the interview in Virtuality.

Thank you Dixmix!
Following the usual exhibition scheme at DixMix gallery the exhibtion should stay open until January 15th, 2022.
