The Flowers Are Opening In My Body July 11th – Aug 6th, 2020- New Art by NarayanRaja, also known as Shiny




I feel that all the stars shine in me. 
The world breaks into my life like a flood. 
The flowers are opening in my body. 
All the youthfulness of land and water 
smokes like an incense in my heart; 
and the breath of all things 
plays on my thoughts as on a flute.

–Rabindranath Tagore


Welcome to “The Flowers Are Opening In My Body.” 

The title of the exhibition is borrowed from the book “Fruit Gathering" by Indian mystic poet Rabindranath Tagore. First published in 1916, it was then translated by the author himself from Bengali into English.   

The exhibition features new works conjured during remote walks in nature, rare outings during four months of shelter-in-place during the Covid-19 pandemic. The artist presents digital photographic objects that harness the power of photography and analog processes. Root systems dipping into shallow summer creeks and their rippling reflections, faces in stones, snakes in the grasses, vultures, fallen and decaying Redwoods, trees scorched by California wildfires, and 130,000 fatalities in the USA.  

These are the components for spells as imagery. They serve the artist as medicine and healing. Such meditations are alchemical transmutations (mortifcatio, negredo) pondering death and decay, and thus the cycles of life, cause and effect, and its restorative, visceral earth magic potencies.

Shiny’s art navigates and guides us through an ongoing time of dying and emerging stories of self and society that call for dynamic alchemy of creativity, compassion, curiosity, and openness. These mystic pixels capture altered states of mind and seeing, all in a foreboding and delightful quest for self-knowledge.

Please join the artist and friends for the opening reception festivities.  
Day:   Saturday, July 11th   
Time: 12 – 3 PM SLT

Visions of Hope 2016: silent auction in benefit of Relay For Life of SL

This event opened on Saturday, April 30th with a party led by DJ Cupric Router at 4PM SLT.

During the exhibition, the public will be able to acquire photo-based pieces as well as sculptures from some of the most renowned artists in Second Life and, at the same time, contribute with the ACS's programs to improve cancer survival, decrease the incidence of cancer and improve the quality of life for cancer patients and their caretakers. It should be noticed, too, that the actions by ACS are not restricted to the United States: lately, the Society has been contributing with initiatives to fight cancer around the world.

The art exhibition goes from April 30 until May 30. The minimum bid is just L$ 500 and the amounts can be increased by at least L$ 100 each time. At the end of May, we will learn who acquired what.

Grand opening of the New Art Exhibition from Trinity Yazimoto, “Fragments", on the October 19th at 12 pm SLT

.


Petit Chat Art Gallery  is proud to present you a new exhibition from Trinity Yazimoto : Fragments.
As she’s not the kind to reveal herself easily, she gives all along her artworks fragments of her soul, which came as pieces of a puzzle. Of course, she won’t give all the pieces but from what you will see in this new exhibition you will be able to meet some parts of her personality.

Fragments is divided in 2 sections : “reflections of a movie” and “other fragments”.
The new exhibition also inaugurates the new art gallery in Moumou’s Square.
Set under a beautiful south french landscape (created by Trixxie Nitely), the underground gallery hopes it will please your eyes.


REFLECTION OF A MOVIE :
When she went to university, Trinity Yazimoto decided to study Cinema. She followed this path for some years till she got a Master in Cinema Studies.
Among all the classes she could get, what fascinated her the most was the History of the cinema. She discovered then some treasures almost forgotten by the public nowadays.

With this series of artworks she wanted to pay homage to this rich artistic heritage reminding  her of  movies she really loves.

At the same time, since she got now (thanks to her new PC) the ability to see shadows and materials, she decided to create also something we miss in SL : reflections in mirrors or glasses.

The series includes 9 artworks bringing up 8 movies.

OTHER FRAGMENTS :
Trinity  will easily talk about what she does, what she likes or dislike, what she wants or doesn’t want, but when it comes to talk about her feelings and her inner side, she will barely say something.

As a way to protect herself she doesn’t use to reveal a lot of her deep personality.
She will willingly joke about her twisted mind or the fact she’s often said “bizarre”, but she will barely talk about her own history which built who she is today.
She thinks these things remain with her and in the past and she usually prefer let people guess or interpreted as they wish.

However, she often feels the need to reveal things, but as she can’t do by just saying, she uses her artworks to instill some fragments of her soul, leaving the choice to the other peoples to guess or not guess and even to give another meaning to her pics. She wishes to add some words for each pic on a notecard, but she doesn’t really say a lot for the same purpose.
It is also for this reason that she chose to use photoshop rather than doing pure photographs, as she feels she can add more of her inner side through the post processing she applies to her pics.

THE NEW GALLERY :
Petit Chat Argallery  opened in July 2013 in the beautiful Haddath Cove, on a parcel complimentary lent by Nati Jashan.
The building was an impressive Steampunk tower and artworks were displayed inside and downstairs in the yard.

Trinity wanted to bring her gallery close to Moumou’s Square, her public garden, where her fashion store is.
Recently she got the opportunity to buy a piece of land just next door  and she asked her favorite and talented landscaper, Trixxie Nitely to decorate the land for her again.

After long days of intensive work, Trix delivered the result of her efforts : a beautiful south french landscape.

On a hill stands a ruin surrounded by grapevines trellis. Two garden homes offer a peaceful spot to relax, and behind the ruins, some tables propose refreshments for the visitors under a big tree. Of course, as it is south France decor, cicadas give a permanent concert of their best tunes.

Down the hill, a beautiful pond will welcome visitors in a beautiful and rustic landscape.
A bridge will lead them to the main part of Moumou’s square and further to Petit Chat mainstore.

One reaches the art gallery by using the ladder located at the feet of the ruins.
Once underground, you will discover Trinity Yazimoto’s artwork displayed in old and rusted building.

Even if it looks messy, Trinity took a lot of care that every visitor feel comfortable while visiting.

On the back side of the gallery a projector shows the artworks on a pile of boxes.
 All spots are set to public and are free to visit.

Spotlight on JudiLynn India; a Real World Painter, Owner and Curator at Center Ground Gallery of Arts in Second Life- Lanai Jarrico Reporting…



     
Art is an expression of human creativity. All a person needs is skills and an imagination.  It is used for self expression, an escape from everyday stresses and even works as a form of therapy. Art comes in many different mediums from sculpting, drawing and painting to photography, graphic design and assemblage.

Style can be contemporary, abstract, modern, realistic or a combination of all.  With the rapid growth of technology, art can be taken to new levels and shared with people from all over the world. Second Life is the perfect platform for showcasing art and interacting with fans. Artists from any genre can create artwork, upload images into Second Life, put their work in a virtual gallery or participate in art shows across the grid. Artists can also sell their work to virtual world resident to hang on their walls in their virtual homes or offices or even in the real world with the use of websites and e-commerce.

Judi Lynn is known in Second Life as JudiLynn India. She is a real world painter from Philadelphia, currently living in Georgia that uses the virtual world to share her talent with others.  Her love of art goes as far back as she could remember. While other little girls played with their dolls, Judilynn found her muse at an easel.  Growing up, her education always included art. She was enrolled in Saturday classes and special projects through high school and into college where she studied Graphic Design at Tyler School of Art/Temple University. Her mediums are traditional acrylic and digital Paintings as well as digital acrylics. Her use of vibrant colors and earth tones provide a balance of lively and warm ambiance with a calming effect. Combined with an intriguing array of forms and shapes, her pieces capture the imagination.
