Thanks to RobertSteven Smythe for an outstanding exhibition taking place at Artemisia, a well directed gallery of  SL.

Some beautiful works by  Glyph Graves and elros Tuominen are placed there, for 3 weeks. It is a unique occasion to have some works of these two special SL artists exposed face to face.  Their sculptures have  point of contacts, still their art  expresses two  different and strong personalities.

RobertSteven is organizing it with passion, and I think he is doing a great job. Here you have his press release, with some interesting comments of both elros and Glyph on their art.

Galerie de la Vie, Artemisia

Now through April 14th

Reception April 2nd at 3:00 pm SL time

Exhibition: The Collector: Part Three Glyph Graves and elros Tuominen


The Collector: Part Three, Glyph Graves and elros Tuominen

The exhibition “The Collector” is focused around the art collection of Sichel Seifert an art enthusiast who has been collecting and commissioning some of the finest artists in Second Life since early 2005. You will see as never before from the eyes of a collector and connoisseur of Second Life art. This last installment of “The Collector” displays the wonderful work of elros Tuominen and Glyph Graves, two of Second Life’s most colorful and inspiring artists.

Glyph Graves, “My art is currently focused on the interplay between structure and texture. As well as the normal digital tools of graphic and 3D modeling programs, I also freely make use of Linden Scripting Language as both my chisel and my paintbrush. I’m constantly in a state of wonder (and occasionally, despair) at the depth and the dimensionality that’s available for the art of Second Life. I am also known for my work with slow alpha textures in complex sculpts but also work with interactive sound and solid Transformational pieces.”

Graves on Tuominen’s work, “elros creates beautiful textures and animates them in new and surprising ways, exploring the sculptures physical as well as textural space. He has a romantic spirit that comes through strongly in his work, with the cubic form a major object of his affection. My personal favorites though are his work with flex.”

elros Tuominen relates, “My work is based on three basic points: light, colour and rhythm, and almost all the ideas come from own feelings and experiences, most of them, not all. I just create some music without sound, some alive watercolour, watercolours that never dry, and light, many light, giving those 3d pieces more depth and movement, it’s the main idea, movement, kinetic works, creating in a fourth dimension, a new dimension to play with and express myself, so maybe there’s some kind of futurism there too. With each work I try to create what I have envisioned after thinking about a concept, then I develop it, until I discover what I wanted to build—that’s a nice moment really…”

Tuominen on Graves work, “I love the sweet movements and dizzy transitions he builds, like flowers from a world called SL. I really like his pieces they are delicate and so smooth, like some kind of peace in this world…”

Don’t miss the last installment of “The Collector” a once in a lifetime exhibition now through April 14th. Opening reception April 2, 2009 at 3 pm SL time.. Please join the residents of Artemisia in this wonderful exhibition from Second Life’s greatest artists. Artemisia – Living with Art.

There are few genius in SL kinetic sculpturing… and Glyph is one of them.


[Diamond beads – by Glyph Graves]


He has got high skill to build up kinetic effects.


[Cloud – by Glyph Graves]

A definite personal style, made of quiet movements and rotations… Glyph’s world is not a frantic one…


[Shoal B – by Glyph Graves]

My idea is that he is a perfectionist. I can see he likes details and delicate nuances.


[Its just a fish – by Gliph Graves]

In Glyph sculptures, colors changes the way they have to…


[Ball of fluff – by Glyph Graves]


[Ball of fluff (transforming) – by Glyph Graves]

Also, he likes to adapt his work to SL tech features, and using SL wind rhythm, and sounds, and the possible impact of them on his sculptures.


[Worm flower combined- c (with me floating inside)  – by Glyph Graves]

And he is attracted by the way SL allows to create new formidable creatures. Fantastic fishes and birds, where feathers are fins, and fins are wings.


Recalls to me ancestral animals, when the world was as new as SL is.


[FlyingAnimalanywherebuttermoth – by Glyph Graves]

Thank you Glyph.

Meleni Fairymeadow’s rarest works are temporarily showed at Crescent Moon Museum,   FairChang Village sim, one of the oldest and more reliable museum in SL (visit it)

It is a great and temporary occasion to look at Meleni more complex sculptures (they count hundreds of prims). In other words,  it is an unique opportunity to admire some of the works of one of the best sculptress in SL.

The exhibition is based on most of the sculptures that she made on exclusive commission. It is the only time they have been displayed together like this in public.


[Father and Daughter – Meleni Fairymeadow]

Inscripted on one side of the Father and Daughter sculpture, there is a poem by the person who commissioned the statue to Meleni. I think it is worth to report it here. It is in Italian, so i added below my personal translation of it (apologizing for my unsecure English).

The Eleonora’s poem inscripted on the Father and Doughter statue:

Quando sei andato via non credevo di poter vivere
Mancava la tua mano, il tuo guardare punti lontani
Quando sei andato via sono rimasta come una pietra di sale
Inutile come un granello di polvere
Superflua come una goccia nel mare
Impaurita come una foglia autunnale
Quando sei andato via non sapevo dove andare
Il tempo, che è un padre freddo si è preso cura di me
Il tempo che èun padre distratto m’ha cresciuta storta
Il tempo che è un padre severo m’ha punita senza motivo
Se tu fossi ancora con me m’avresti difesa
M’avresti resa sicura con le grandi mani e gli occhi buoni
Ma sono arrivata sin qui da sola tra sguardi di belve unghie nemiche
Padre io sono ancora qui.
Qui è quel che ho potuto fare
Quel che resta di me cresciuta senza di te.

Eleonora Scripsit – Meleni Fairymeadow Fecit – MMVII

[Once you left, I did not believe I could live anymore
I was missing your hand and your staring  at farer points
Once you left, I remained like a salt stone
Useless, like a grain of dust
Superflous, like a drop in the sea
Scared,  like an autumn leave
Once you left, I did not know where to go
Time, which is an indifferent father, took care of me
Time, which is an absentminded father, grew  me up as a twisted one
Time, which is a severe father, did punish me without a reason
If you were still with me, you would have protected me, you would have made me feel safe with your big hands and good eyes
But I came here alone, among sights of wild harmful claws
Father, I am still here.
Here is what I could do
What remains of me who grew up without you.]

I run there to take my photos.

Dancoyote’s sculptures needs space to expand in their beauty.


[New Cube – by Dancoyote Antonelli – visit it]

And they fill it with colours and imagination.

AM Radio is the master of  SL landscaping.


[Beneath The Tree That Died – Installation for the University of Kentucky – GEO 714 – by AM Radio – visit it]

He builds beautiful and extensive installations, having a sense of incumbent melancholy.


[Wheat Fields – The Refuge and Expansion – by AM Radio – visit it]

… and usually a taste of old-time…


[Texaco Filling Station – Installation at Exhibit Sim: Alexander Gallery II-Welsh Cove – by AM Radio – visit it]

They are always highly detailed, as only SL  greatest builders are able to do.


[1948 (detail) – by AM Radio]

This brings back one of the main SL features: not only can people on the Grid create personal relationships, but also objects and environments.  So, from the simplest object, to the more complex artifacts, each piece in SL shows its own share of creativity.


[The Far Away (detail) – by AM Radio]

AM Radio raises that SL feature to its excellence.


[Radio – Alexander Galleries-Welsh lakes Radio, AM Radio, Exhibit -(detail) – by AM Radio – visit it]

I was lucky, while taking my picks for this post I met him at work. The beloved Mermaid then had a car accident…


[AM Radio, myself, EmeraldEver Cline’s tail]

And AM Radio donated to us his outstanding car to compensate the street hassle. TY.
