Tuesday, August 4th saw the opening of the latest art exhibition at The Living Room, the music and arts venue operated by Owl Dragonash and Daallee. This month, the venue features the work of Jewell Wirefly, who offers a series of images from her travels around Second Life.
Jewell says of her work, “I have been in SL now for almost 9 years and have been taking pictures for nearly 6 years, and I still enjoy it as much as the very first shot. My art is nearly always inspired by a song and sometimes a quote or a poem. However, the one thing they all have in common is that they express my emotions. I like to take a variety of pics, including a lot of fantasy ones, and not keep to any particular type or style. ”
The images displayed at The Living Room reflect this approach to her work; having mostly been captured out and about in Second Life, each with its own particular style and emotive content. However, while she has tended to mostly eschewed the use of studio shots for her work, she does admit to more recently to building her own sets to capture some of the images that come to mind, and this side of her work is reflected here as well.
While there is a narrative and emotional content in all the images, I found myself most strongly drawn to four in particular (seen at the top of this article). I’ve no idea if their relatively close placement was intentional, but individually and collectively, I found them to be very evocative in terms of mood, narrative and image.
All told, another welcome, and personal display from an SL artist which will remain open to visitors through until August 25th, 2015, when there will be a special party to mark the end of the exhibition featuring the music of Laralette Lane, starting at noon SLT.
August also brings with it another night of live music at The Living Room, with August 13th seeing Billy Thunders on stage at 17:00 SLT, followed by The Vinnie Show at 18:00 SLT.
