 About the Designer

Before I can appreciate where I am, I have to look back at where I started. I have been the Curator of The Rose Theatre and Art Galleries since February, 2011. I think the stars were well-aligned the day I stepped into Mr. Kaya Angel’s office to interview him for Radar Magazine. I began pursuing art and writing opportunities within a few short weeks of entering Second Life. This world gave me wings to fly and outlets for my creative nature, whether it be art, decoration, building or writing. Just a few months after that first interview I exhibited at the Rose and I count that as…

Layachi Ihnen’s “Ephemeral Visions” Light Up Gallery Eight

Layachi Ihnen returns to The Rose in Gallery 8 after a nearly two-year absence and the walls are screaming his praises in brilliant, living color. Enter the gallery from the main lobby, second floor, and you’ll be warmed by the rich reds and golds that greet you. The show, Ephemeral Visions, is aptly named. whimsical surrealism, meets Realism, meets a touch of Cubism.  His work encompasses both oil painting and digital creations.

Talullah Winterwolf Dominates Gallery Seven, by Kylie Sabra

 

The rich colors in the Gallery 7 build were a must when it serves as the backdrop to equally power art. Tallulah’s work can never go unobserved. No on is going to pass from the exhibition hall on their way to Gallery 8 without stopping short. Her work is that powerful.

When you visit. Take the time to study the subtle layers. Talullah says every painting is a story. What will you read in these rich splashes of color and commanding images?

In the Artist’s Words

Since as far back as I remember, it seems I have had a pencil in my hand  marking whatever paper I had available with the strange goings-on in my head.

I have been painting and drawing all my life– but have never exhibited any of my actual “art” before doing so in Second Life. I was trained in art college, in fashion design, and for a while had my own fashion design business. Currently, I am working in photography.

My inspiration comes from many sources, but the common thread in all my creative works–be it fashion, a photograph, or a painting–tells a story in some form or another. Some of the stories are deeply autobiographical; others could be inspired by a chance snippet of conversation, a captured unintended moment caught in a random photograph, a memory, or a line in a song or book…

A lot of my work explores childhood memories, feelings,or dreams and contains much of the surrealism and symbolism found there, but each one contains an emotion I was feeling strongly at the time. I have tried to capture that feeling in the images., and in doing so have realized that the very effect of layering the image and textures is suggestive of the way our memories are layered on top of each other and each whole is the sum of many parts.

I work in a variety of mediums. This exhibition is image layering , which I use as an inspiration for paintings.

I hope you enjoy exploring each piece, and thank you for your appreciation!

The Rose Art Galleries Say Goodbye to Ranadeep & Kala Gable

It is with a profound sense of loss that I say goodbye to Ranadeep and Kala as curators at The Rose Art Gallery–but certainly not as dear friends. Real life has a way of dishing it out from time to time, and has laid its voracious fingers upon both of them. It is my hope and prayer that someday they may return to their roles here at the Rose. I wish them both the very best, and while they may not be working members of the Angel family, they certainly remain beloved members.

Ranadeep did an amazing job as curator. He is one of the most diligent, talented and focused men I know and he has my profound respect and friendship. Kala came in beside Ranadeep as his assistant and more over these past few weeks–filling in for him as he was unable to come in world. Thank you both.

I will be resuming my full duties as curator. If you have any questions about the gallery, please feel free to contact me.

Sabra Style at BOSL’s Couture Boulevard

Why combine art and fashion? I absorbed myself in art immediately upon entering Second Life–building and opening my first art gallery less than a month in world. I’ve not stopped either. To me, fashion design is art, and I’m loving this new medium–passionate about it actually.

The new stores bring fine couture in an environment reminiscent of a beautiful modern art gallery.  The art featured on the outside of the stores is by Ranadeep; talented and renown fractal artist and Curator of the Rose Thearte Art Galleries. I am so thankful he has taken this role as it has freed me to pursue fashion design, while still creating the gallery designs. It’s the best of both worlds.

Cullum Writer at The Rose Galleries

cullum-writer-rose-theatre-art-galleries

Born in Porto Alegre, Brazil, Cullum Writer is a very talented artist who has evolved from her basic inspiration of taking snapshots in SL to creating some really amazing works of art. Being naturally curious, Cullum ventured into trying new techniques – from fractals to collages, developing her graphic art immensely in the process. In her own words, “she found the happiness to capture and perpetuate images that touch her sensibility with the harmony and grace of their forms and colors.”

The Rose Theatre Art Galleries is proud to host the art of Cullum Writer, now in exhibit at Gallery #6. We are pleased to announce a reception party today, 17th September at 5pm SLT. The artist will be there for meet and greet and to answer any queries and DJ Ariana will be spinning some wonderful tunes for two hours. We invite you all to join us for a wonderful evening of art and music.

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.
