Art in Second Life 2022 (89) Eunoia by Zia Branner

I got an invitation from Zia Sophia (Zia Branner) to attend the opening of her latest exhibition named “Eunonia” at the Third Eye. I had no time to attend the opening but went there soon before.

Third Eye is Jaz (jessamine2108)’s home and gallery – a place that is designed to showcase art, particles, inspire stories, and offer a quiet place to relax and rejuvenate. Jaz says: “It is the culmination of my many dreams – to create a place that nurtures and helps the growth of all types of creative endeavors – be it words, pictures, or particles.
Jaz shares the land with Harry Cover (impossibleisnotfrench), who runs his shop “L’Artisan” on the sim. Both are artists and I have reported about them before.

The Third Eye gallery is in a skybox. It is a classic gallery, in the form of a “L”. Zia’s pictures are arranged at the walls, in the center is a plave to dance and to celebrate events.

Zia explains the word Eunoia in the notecard that came with the invitation:
Eunoia comes from the Greek word eúnoia. The meaning of this word is: beautiful thinking, a well mind. It indicates a mind in balance, benevolence, goodwill and kindness. 
In all lives from time to time it isn’t easy to have a mind in balance. We have our downs, we have our challenges. There is cold, there is warmth. Our strength then lays in our goodwill, in our kindness and with this the balance in our mind and our well being goes up again.
For me Eunoia is represented by the main colors blue and red. Of course you can assign to it the colors that are most applicable to you.

Zia’s pictures are mostly abstract, yet the human brain tends to sort the impressions and to compare with known patterns. Some of them clearly look like labdscapes, like a beach or like a waterfall. Others are completely abstract, colourful and with multiple forms so that you can see objects like stones, teeth,  hands, or even persons or faces. And often the main colour is blue or red.

Zia Branner had many drawing and painting art lessons at official institutes RL. She is also autodidact on things that did not come along in class. To her making art is a way of life. Often experimenting with techniques as a learning process …. The most important thing to her is that it makes her happy to see others enjoy her art as much as she loves creating it.
Zia is in Second Life since 2008. She uploaded her RL paintings into SL. Zia owns an art gallery/shop “Elven Falls Art Collective“. Zia also has other permanent exhibitions at The Galleries, Emergent and at Carmel Art Community.

Zia Sophia (Zia Branner)’s motto is : “The Earth without ‘art’ is just ‘eh'”

Thank you Jaz (jessamine2108) and Harry Cover (impossibleisnotfrench) for providing the space for the arts and for enabling this exhibition by Zia. Thank you Zia for your artwork. I enjoyed my visit.

P.S.: Don’t forget to grab the two gifts in the center of the exhibition space. One gift is a 3D object created by Harry, the other is a painting from Zia.

Art in Second Life 2022 (79) Shoshin by Zia Branner

I got an invitation from Zia Branner to attend the opening of her latest exhibition named “Shoshin” at the Museum for Art (MUFA). The opening takes place tonight, Sunday, September 11th, at 12 PM SLT, that’s 9 PM CET (Paris). The music for the opening party will be provided by Carelyna, the owner and creator of the ArtCare Gallery.

The Museum for Art (MUFA) is owned and curated by Vandeverre who “likes to share her passion for history, culture, literature and art, so she built the Museum for Art.” Vandeverre provides several links in her profile, there an instagram, a flickr and a twitter account for the Museum for Art.

Zia Branner’s paintings are exhibited on the ground floor near the stairs (just where the provided landmark of the Museum for Art (MUFA) takes you) and near the DJ stand.

Besides Zia Branner’s paintings there are more artists featured:
Illustrations ‘From Oz to home’ by Lis Xia (Xia Chieng).
A sculpture garden with works from Cherry Manga, Vincent Priesley (sweetvincent), Art C (ar10a2.crescendo), and Milena Carbone (mylena1992)
SL Photography by Vandeverre herself – current expo “PORTRAITS”.
Digital 2D Art by Nia Atreides (Nia Voxel), Lis Xia (Xia Chieng), Dragon (dragonangelvs) and RL Photographs by Nils Urqhart
Historical art by Claude Monet made in Holland and Guiseppe Arcimboldo.

Sculpture Garden at the Museum for Art (MUFA)

Back to Zia Branner’s newest exhibition “Shoshin”.
Shoshin is a word from Zen Buddhism meaning “beginner’s mind.” It refers to having an attitude of openness, eagerness, and lack of preconceptions when studying a subject, even when studying at an advanced level, just as a beginner would. The term is especially used in the study of Zen Buddhism and Japanese martial arts (source wikipedia).
In the accompanying notecard Zia explained the word shorter: “Shoshin means: the practice of seeing life with wonder”

The paintings belong to “Shoshin” are near the DJ stand, and it is the first time that these paintings are exhibited.

They are abstract, yet the human brain tends to sort the impressions and to compare with known patterns. I saw teeth, toes, hands, I saw a river with stones, I saw a woman, I saw smoke and an explosion – and I saw colour compositions that were eye candy for me.

Zia’s paintings exhibited near the stairs are abract landscapes, a style that I saw already in former exhibitions of her art.

Zia Branner had many drawing and painting art lessons at official institutes RL. She is also autodidact on things that did not come along in class. To her making art is a way of life. Often experimenting with techniques as a learning process …. The most important thing to her is that it makes her happy to see others enjoy her art as much as she loves creating it.
Zia is in Second Life since 2008. She uploaded her RL paintings into SL. Zia owns an art gallery/shop “Elven Falls Art Collective“. Zia also has other permanent exhibitions at The Galleries, Emergent and at Carmel Art Community.

Zia Branner’s art is mostly colourful. She paints abstract and fills the canvas with what just in her mind. She’s inspired by nature and landscapes and consequently her art often looks like landscapes or like flowers. Hence the boarders between abstract and real life paintings are blurring. And what is dominating lies in the eyes of the beholder.
Zia intends to expand her art into painting RL, portraits or still lifes, but so far she’s painting abstract.

Zia paints, primarily, for herself. It is a way for her to express herself. a way to step away from the everydy hustly and bustle of things.
Figuring out, struggling with or succeeding in creating a painting, capturing things the way I see them on the canvas … it is a big drug. Well, okay, there you have my addicition…. ‘The Earth without ‘art’ is just ‘eh’…

Enjoy your visit to the Museum for Art (MUFA) and to Zia Branner’s newest exhibition “Shoshin”. Thank you Vandeverre for providing the space for the arts, and thank you Zia for your newest exhibtion.
I enjoyed my visit!

Art in Second Life 2022 (68) Amaranthine by Zia Branner at BOSL Arts

I got an invitation to visit the opening of Zia Branner’s latest exhibition at BOSL Arts. I went there Saturday, July 16th, a few hours before the official opening event. I just had seen Zia Branner’s art at the Gateway Gallery (read here).

I have never been to Best of Second Life (BOSL) before, The place is group owned, the group is described at a “group of fantastic artists that bring life to THE BEST OF SL Innovation Pavillion.” It is home to Miss Virtual World Pageant, BOSL Magazine, BLVD Models, the BOSL Arts Gallery and features some designers. Frolic Mills is the CEO and Jamee Sandalwood the COO of the group. I did not find out if they are the owners.
I only visited the gallery and the exhibition of Zia Branner.

Impressions of “Amaranthine” by Zia Branner @ BOSL Arts (1)

The gallery building is quite large and offers enough room for the about 25 to 30 pictures that are showcased along the walls of the gallery and at the two center blocks inside. When enter the building from the right (open) side you find a board where you can grab a gift from Zia Branner and some information about her and her art, a biography and a booklet. The exhibition poster has no name for the exhibition  but next to the board is a sign “Amaranthine”.

The word “amaranthine” means “imperishable”, but is mainly written in English as “amaranth” or “amaranthus”. It comes from the Greek word “amarantos”. Amaranth is a plant genus that grows almost everywhere due to its unpretentiousness and is interpreted in the poetic sense as a symbol of immortality.

Art in Second Life 2022 (63) Gateway Gallery July 2022

Nils Urqhart sent me an invitation for an opening event at the Gateway Gallery. On June 30th a joined exhibition was opened there featuring 4 artists with different segments of art:
Nils Urqhart (RL photos)
Rage W Darkstone (Rage Darkstone) (large sculptures)
Terra Merhyem (TerraMerhyem) (colourful sculptures)
Zia Branner (paintings)

The Gateway Gallery is embedded into the main building of the Gateway International Airport in Second Life, the entry point to Sansara and Heterocera for air and sea traffic from all over the mainland. The airport itself is owned by Lethra. As the management is done by a group, founded by Lethra, I couldn’t find out who curates the Gateway Gallery.

The Gateway Gallery extends over two floors. In the entrance area and in the main hallway are one big sculpture named “Split” by Rage W Darkstone (Rage Darkstone) and three smaller sculptures of Terra Merhyem (TerraMerhyem).
The hall on the left side shows the exhibtion “Meraki” by Zia Branner and the sculptures by Terra Merhyem, who titled her part “Beings”. The hall on the right side shows Nils Urqhart’s exhibition “And darkness came..” along with a few large sculptures of Rage W Darkstone. Rage titled his part “Trompe l’Oeil”

I visited Zia Branner’s exhibition “Meraki” first. Meraki is a Greek word and means about as much as doing something with passion, love and creativity and giving a piece of yourself into it. Quite a fitting title!
I found a board where I could grab a notecard from Zia:
Zia Branner had many drawing and painting art lessons at official institutes RL. She is also autodidact on things that did not come along in class. To her making art is a way of life. Often experimenting with techniques as a learning process …. The most important thing to her is that it makes her happy to see others enjoy her art as much as she loves creating it.
Zia is in Second Life since 2008. She uploaded her RL paintings into SL. Zia owns an art gallery/shop “Elven Falls Art Collective“. Zia also has other permanent exhibitions at The Galleries, Emergent and at Carmel Art Community.

Zia Branner’s art is mostly colourful and ranges from abstract pictures over landscapes to flowers

Impressions of Gatway Gallery July 2022 (1) – Entrance hall (upper left) with Rage W Darkstone’s sculpture “Split” (lower left), Zia Branner’s paintings (upper right) and Terra Merhyem’s sculptures (lower right)

I had seen Nils Urqhart’s exhibition “And darkness came..” last year already (read here). As the Gateway gallery offers more space Nils’ photographs get more room and you can focus more on each photo than in the exhibition I had seen before.
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.

Rage W Darkstone (Rage Darkstone) describes himself as “Creativity Junky”. He’s in Second Life since 2007. Rage has an own gallery, the AvA Art Gallery. He also has some permanent and current exhibitions at The Galleries, Vision of Beauty Art Complex and at The Dove Rhoads.

Terra Merhyem (TerraMerhyem) is in Second Life since 2016. She’s a “French 2D / 3D artist, makes phostos, machinima and performances, is a choreographer and curator. Leitmotiv in my life is “Beauty”, that’s why the sentence in my profile is a verse of “The Beauty” (Baudelaire): “I am beautiful, ô mortals, like a dream of (Dark)stone…”
Terra also has several exhibtions at The Dove Rhoads Gallery. You also find her at flickr.
Terra Merhyem and Rage Darkstone are partnered in Second Life.

Thank you Lethra for providing the space for the arts, thanks to all who were involved to enable this great varied exhibition of different art. And last but not least, thank you to all participating artists.

Art in Sceond Life 2021 (4) La Maison d’Aneli Jan/Feb 2021

On Wednesday, January 13th, Aneli Abeyante opened a new joined exhibtion at La Maison d’Aneli. The participating artists for the first exhibtion of 2021 are: Sasha Arivalhagan (arivalhagan), Shoshisn Shilova, Anja (neobookie), NicoleX Moonwall, Kuervo (DonKuervo), GlitterPrincess Destiny, Zia Branner, Talixa and the RL artist Françoise Waroux.

As in the last exhibtions each of the 9 artists has an own skybox to fill at their liking or needs. Hence the art is presented in very different environment.

I started my tour with the art of Kuervo. I don’t know anything about the artist. The owner of the pictures, DonKuervo, is just 3 weeks old and therefore I assume it was created for this exhibition. In the accompanying notecard Kuervo writes: “The paintings that I exhibit here have been drawn and painted by me in IRL. I worked on the lights to create a nice presentation on SL. I am a self-taught person, my paintings were made mainly with acrylics, sometimes with Chinese inks or watercolors. I’m interested in drawing and painting, I’m a graphic designer, and I’m also interested in 3D, photography, djing, as well as sculpture.
You can find Kuervo on facebook here.

Kuervo’s skybox is just this – a box. The walls are used to present the pictures and yes, there’s something that makes you feel “Africa”, and not just because of the zebras. The lighting is selected nicely, the lights move and give the pictures a colourful gloss every once in a while. The effect is stunning compared to looking at the pictures without the moving light.

GlitterPrincess Destiny is in Second Life for almost 13 years. I never came across her before. At La Mansion d’Aneli she divided her skybox into an entry area and a box with 3 levels. GlitterPrincess presents pictures and some smaller 3D objects and installations. They all are about isolation, pain and death. There are some “books” close to several of GlitterPrincess’ art. Clicking these books gives you a notecard with a thought or two about the art. I’m not sure but I think the installation is expressing the isolation, the fear and the deaths that came with the current pandemic. GlitterPrincess’ pictures do tell stories, as it should be.
GlitterPrincess destiny writes in the accompanying notecard: “To capture the soul of emotions ……. subject soul and deep thoughts. This is my goal as a artist + photographer in SL“. You can also look up GlitterPrincess Destiny’s flickr page.

Zia Branner designed her box at La Maison d’Aneli as a warehouse with two floors. Zia is in Second Life for almost 13 years. She brought her RL paintings to SL. The paintings are mostly quite large and colourful, most of them are abstract, some are showing landscapes that have been coloured. From the accompanying notecard I have the following information:
Zia Branner had many drawing and painting art lessons at official institutes RL. She is also autodidact on things that did not come along in class. To her making art is a way of life. Often experimenting with techniques as a learning process. Most of the times she paints on canvas, but she also paints on wood and paper. Zia believes that “making art is rebellion against the finiteness of life“. The most important thing to her is that it makes her happy to see others enjoy her art as much as she loves creating it.
If you are interested in her art you can look up Zia Branner’s website. I do have a weakness for colourful art and hence I enjoyed the visit to her skybox.

Talixa is a new-media artist and in Second Life for over 5 year. She “examines the impact of new technologies on human identities and social connections. In the project shown at La Masion d’Aneli she examines how an AI facial recognition algorithm detects her own face when it is disguised by different digital filters. The algorithms used in this project is an off-the-shelf model, freely available on the GitHub community. The facial filters used in this installation are all freely available on Snap-Chat and were created by talented Snap-Chat artists: Sarah Mayer, jp pirie, Hiral Parekh, Jason Porter, agreeable greg, Joshua Keeney and Stencil Profane.


The skybox is filled with the pictures of Talixa’s face, levitating freely in the room, vanishing, appearing and turning, so that it is hard to focus on on face only – but the machine can. While it is funny to see the filters and what the AI recognizes, it is also scaring (me at least).

Hello and welcome into my world of Second Life art“, writes Anja (neobookie) in the accompanying notecard to her part of the exhibtion at La Maison d’Aneli. “I’m a Dutchie who likes to create, discover and explore the creativity inworld. I discovered the magic of making photographs and invite you, by my art, to join me on my trip. My exhibit is an attempt to create the story of myself as I walk Second Life and experience the world and dreams the surround us all. My thoughts turned into reflections of what I feel in both 2d landscapes and “NEOBOXES”


I like Anja’s art and the quotes on the walls of her exhibtion, that fit with the art showcased: “How far you go has nothing to do with distance” or “How deep you go has nothing to do with thinking at most with a will“. Anja presents quite elaborated 3D objects. Her pictures, taken within Second Life, prove a eye for the detail. I enjoyed my visit to Anja’s box.
If you want to see more of her art have a look at Anja (neobookie)’s flickr page.

Sasha (arivalhagan) is in Second Life for more than 7 years. She writes about herself in the accompanying notecard: “My personal acronym: NAA – Not An Artist! I think being an artist is one of the pinnacles of an existence. I don’t think I’ve reached it. That said, I do like photography a lot. The principle of my exhibition is very simple: to allow you to feel you are being seen. Not necessarily watched, but considered, questioned, appreciated, desired, questioned, loved, admired … And then let you imagine what stories are hidden behind all these glances less simple than they appear at first glance


Her skybox at La Maison d’Aneli is filled with pictures taken in Second Life, processed to enhance them. Many of the pictures are portraits, some show the whole avatar. Sasha always succeeds to make her pictures an eye-catcher, to make them tell a story, just as she wrote in the notecard. But I won’t call her an artist *winks*. Her art can also be seen at Sasha (arivalhagan)’s flickr page.

Shoshisn Shilova is another SL veteran with over 13 years in Second Life. I like the motto in her or his profile: “Reality is for those of you who can’t handle fiction“. Shoshisn uses male and female avatar shapes, which fits to the motto!
At Shoshisn’s space at La Masion d’Aneli almost all walls are covered with pictures, one wall is used to present 3D sulptures. The pictures cover a broad variety of art, erotic, fantasy, objects, scenes. This is also fitting to the above motto. There are many pictures and it was not that easy to decide which ones to take for this blog entry – but I got it done.
Her or his art can also be seen at Shoshisn Shilova’s flickr page.

Françoise Waroux is an RL artist. Here’s an excerpt of the text in the accompanying notecard: “From a childhood marked by several stays in Africa I kept the taste of the great outdoors, the light and colors. I have always collected flowers, branches, seeds, shells, feathers, pebbles for their beauty and for the pleasure of holding them in my hands. I started with collages, but the collages are fragile, difficult to transport and resist poorly time, the branches and shells break, the leaves and flowers lose their color… So I turned to photography to keep my collages intact. I enlarge or light a detail or a hidden side of an object or landscape, or on the contrary, I strip it to preserve only the characteristics that I feel as essential. I play with shapes, colors, light and proportions for bold, colorful and very original creations that sometimes surprise me myself. Each image is unique.


I couldn’t write it any better. The pictures are colourful and unique, yet I hadn’t thought that they were based on collages of flowers and branches and other stuff. Well done!
The avatar holding the ownership of the showcased pictures is Jeff (legrandjeff). To see more or to contact look up Françoise Waroux’ website.

NicoleX Moonwall is in Second Life for more than 11 years. She’s one of the outstanding machinama film-makers in Second Life. Filming in SL and RL since 2011, she has over 900 films that illustrate her unique style of filming, with sweeping long takes and little or no editing, on YouTube and Vimeo. She has received international recognition and has participated in over 150 film festivals around the world. For more information look at NicoleX’s website.
NicoleX’s installation at La Maison d’Aneli wasn’t finished yet, when I visited the first time. I visited it at the opening again. It’s quite difficult to interpret or understand this installation. It is a 3D artwork, a bit like a snippet of a nightmare involving Jesus Christ a bunny head, blocks and a loo. It looks different depending on the viewing angle and the Christ cross and the bunny head are connected, energy is flowing. Jesus Christ has a bunny head by the way …. I fail interpreting it.

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 always inspires me.
