Monroe Snook’s Art Bistro in Second Life

Monroe Snook Art Bistro

Monroe Snook has a new home for her art, courtesy of Milly Sharple. Called the Art Bistro, it offers an impressive insight into Monroe’s art, both from the physical world and from within SL.

Art expression for me is in the experience of the creative process. The thrill of a piece as it unveils itself as I work. The process can be slow and tedious or a quick snap. The work is in command – I am but its servant.

Monroe’s physical art is a fascinating blend of nature and abstract; wonderful plant-like creations, some mindful of sea anemones or even triffids, others organic forms of fractal images. There is a rich vibrancy on the use of colours in these images that adds depth to the feeling they are each alive, whether plant-like in form or more crustacean in shape and feel.

Within her photography, Monroe demonstrates an equally rich ability to present mood or narrative – so much so, that I actually regretted finding three example of her photographic work on display in the gallery space.

Art expression for the viewer is in the interaction with the completed work. Spend time to get to know a work. Make [it] yours. Listen to its song.

This is a selection of pieces that also demonstrate the richness of Monroe’s approach to her art: and approach that encompasses paints and brushes, scans of objects, original sketches, digital art tools such as fractal generation programs and tools like Photoshop.

All told, a welcome return to exhibiting her art from a talented artist.
