Circle of Influence A New Art Installation by Monroe Snook

 


You are cordially invited to join us Sunday, 27 February from 12pm-2pm slt for Monroe Snook's special exhibit on Sinful Retreat II entitled, "Circle of Influence." Bsukmet and DJ Sussyk will bring their unique musical stylings to the fray. We are so excited to share this afternoon of art and music with you! ___________________________________________________________________ About the Artist: Monroe Snook - Multi-media artist (digital and analog), Fine Art and Abstract photography, Curator and owner of Studio 33, an SL art gallery active for about 10 years, SL fine art photography and SL fashion photographer for about 5 years. Art Maniacs Group founder. Monroe's first exhibits in SL showcased her RL floral photography depicting macro images of sensual structures of nature's plenty. In early 2008, she became passionate about SL photography - growing her skill and range within this medium just after the launch of wind-light prior to the explosions of filters and presets. Other artistic endeavors include digital abstracts, abstract photography, multi-media collage, watercolor, acrylic painting, pastel, and sketch work. Many of Monroe's works are award-winning from various SL photo and KoinUP SL photo contests. Her work has been featured in many blogs, SL magazine articles, and SL Best of Best. She was a featured artist of Avatriat and has exhibited work across the SL world. Thank you for visiting this Monroe Snook collection. As a curious artist, it seems my style and approach are ever in flux - there is always a new direction, a new technique, or inkpot I am excited to try. As a result, my exhibits are unpredictable. I like that. Boil it all down...Monroe is alive, does art, and is blessed to have such awesome friends.

A Review of Nabrej Aabye's latest exhibition "Itineraries" - Triuzla reporting.





 Sometimes while wandering through virtual art galleries it can bring about unexpected and priceless experiences. A visit to Crossroads Gallery can be one of such bargains for travelers seeking new discoveries in SL.
The paintings presented at the “Itineraries” exhibition at Crossroads Gallery are intriguing and thought provoking. Don’t resist the temptation to explore the whole building.




Nabrej AAbye is a mysterious creator living in Tunisia. Since 2007, he as been involved with art and builder in Second Life. You can visit his art studio where you can buy even more beautiful pieces of art, which are not included in the current exhibit. The artist shares his inspiration by incorporating real life scenes as subjects in transition to second life in its diverse form. Truly, the blend of two realities causes controversial and disturbing feelings of dynamic and emotions, hidden deep in ones’ sub consciousness.

The use of bright colors influences the whole specter of thoughts and provokes tough inner response. Nevertheless, there’s no doubt that the pictures can be stared for a long time, delving into the virtual dialog with the creator.

What did he mean by adding this or that layer? Did he wish us to meditate on his artworks or take immediate action? Questions emerge all the time.        

I can’t say that the theme of revolutionary changes is the guiding idea of  Nabrej’s works. In his native country he has experienced these dramatic events, turbulence and rigorous vibes which can be perceived through the contemplation on his works.
 True features of talent is his ability to transform hard experiences into optimistic, mature sated works, setting peace and wisdom in the viewer’s soul.



“La Marche” can make one stand motionless. The artwork contains numerous female dark silhouettes, hurrying on somewhere (on execution, as artist explained in a private talk). However there’s one bright white young representative of this mass, which totally differs and can become the agent of changes.
It is perceived as a bright hope depicted in a playful form. The pureness and open-warmheartedness permeates the air around all pieces of Nabrej’s art.
For example, “Avatars” is a piece that stimulates imagination with its intriguing layering effect. Watching this picture for a long time you can imagine an abstract idea.
Despite this fact one can feel a strong connection with their own adventures in SL.  
On the one hand, art should actually cause such an effect. On the other hand, Kerouak’s quote on the floor sets the whole mood of the perception and makes it clear what the creator was trying to tell us.
