Afterimage: Janine Portal’s New Works

Afterimage by Janine Portal

Janine Portal is one of the most talented and creative artists in SL. Although she is a real life artist with a degree in painting, her creative mind found out better ways to express her works with the help of various inworld resources that SL has to offer. These new possibilities helped her develop a very unique style that she is well known for today. 

Recently, Janine started displaying her new and very interesting works at The Rose Galleries in an exhibition, titled “Afterimage“. As per Wikipedia, an afterimage (or ghost image) is an optical illusion of an image that persists in one’s vision after the exposure to the original sight has ended.

In her own words: 

“My artistic style of layering several images, one on top of the other, serves as a literal metaphor for many planes or realities existing in the same space or, as I’m implying in this show, the varieties of use and experience a single space might serve over time.

Where I stand, today, someone else may have stood, laughed, or cried, or contemplated their god. It’s possible they built a house right here, with their bare hands, just 100 years ago. A house already lost to time and decay and progress.

It’s not simply the recent past in which I’m interested. There are ancient echoes and energetic memories locked into walls and soil. Shadows cast. Echoes of risings and fallings, of laughter, birth and death. I believe everything is recorded somewhere, somehow, and much of it may still be playing in the background of that empty building or schoolyard or grove of trees.”

Intriguing, isn’t it?

There is a reception at The Rose Art Gallery #8 this evening at 5pm SLT where Janine herself would be present. We will have some music and a small party where you can meet and greet the artist and ask her more to know about her thoughts and her special works. Everyone is invited – Please do join us!

The Far Away – Again

Has there been a more photographed train in all of SL? I won’t answer that. It’s rhetorical anyway. I myself have shot it well more than once and here it is again. I love this magical, solitary engine left to rot in what to me, a native-born Kansan, appears to be a golden field of Kansas wheat.

New Art Homes for Kylie Sabra and Ranadeep at The Rose Theatre & Art Galleries (by Kylie Sabra)

As many know, I get a bug to rearrange, redo, revamp, re-realize. Well the bug bit this week and I went to work on Randeep’s and my gallery. Larger and decidedly different. We strive to keep things fresh.

Ranadeep has moved in a new and brilliant show into Gallery # 1 (Take a left at the entrance).

I”ve moved into Gallery 5. ( Take at right at the main entrance). I’ve divided the gallery into two rooms. The first is for my latest work. The second room holds vendors with pretty much everything I’ve done in my time here.  Well, the good stuff anyway. They are divided into landscapes, people, abstracts and work specific to Angel Manor. It seemed the best way to manage my work in a small space. Here you’ll find a comfy area to sit, relax and enjoy a glass of wine.

Ermandalee, a fresh and talented SL Photographer, loves to explore the beautiful places like anyone else. The realization that some of these places will not be there forever, inspired her to start capturing them in photos. Soon she came across the huge SL community of artists and was motivated to learn and develop her skills with windlight settings and photo tools. The Rose Galleries welcome Ermandalee to exhibit a few of her beautiful works at Gallery #2.

Rage Darkstone – Abstract Drawings

From an early age, art was an integral part of Rage Darkstone’s identity. His father was an artist and Rage had the manual dexterity to start painting and drawing at the age of two.  For a long time, artistic expression was an unquestioned part of Rage’s life. This until he stopped doing art entirely. More recently, after a long hiatus,  Rage has returned to his artistic roots. He has begun to re-explore how he can project his deepest moods, his unconscious experience of his surroundings, and his inner-most dreams through his abstract drawings. A collection of his colourful abstracts are now on display at Rose Gallery #5.
