Something a little diferent today, as I’ve rounded up Mal, cover star of SLN Issue 6, to do a few poses at the Nitroglobus Gallery, where an exhibition featuring the work of Jade du Fhang and Dido Haas is on for the months of November and December. Not strictly ‘naturist’, but Dido’s photography features ‘the nude’, so we can assume that Dido’s work is kind of naturist friendly. More to the point, it’s an expression of RL creativity being brought into SL, and I’ve a tendency to admire these crossovers. Here’s what the exhibition has to say.
JadeYu Fhang is a RL artist from Paris, France. She followed drawing classes at the Fine Arts School of Paris and attended the Applied Arts School.
For JadeYu there’s no split between the “virtual” universe, and the “real” one. In her opinion each of them creates inner confusion, exults and feeds itself from the other. From this perspective the pictures she takes in SL could materialize thanks to their printing on real canvas, recalling an effect of texture we see on RL paintings.
Her approach is to give the opportunity to wander over these two worlds where dream (captured by blurred and abstract techniques) and reality are completing each other.
The installation ‘Dark Journey’ on display here at Nitroglobus Gallery during the months of November and December shows the inner struggle with these 2 worlds of the artist and the emptiness that sometimes exists in both. The emphasis in this installation is on abyssm. Leap into the dark…..
The notecard also links on through to Jade’s own sim, which is also well worth checking out, as it offers a spectacular different kind of landscape. The images on the walls of the Nitroglobus gallery are probably subject to copyright, so I’ve tried not to focus on them too much, despite them being the very thing I’d have loved to have blogged. Both Jade and Dido’s work are both worthy of your attention, I have to say.
Therefore, the artworks are heavily edited in the photos, to protect the copyright holder, and, well, it’s a naturist magazine, so Mal’s smiling face will have to be an equally attractive foreground, lol. But please do take a visit for something very new and unique as an SL experience, and do pay attention to the backgrounds in these photos of Mal.
