Can one define what art is truly? Many have been attempting to do so for centuries… since man has existed. Whether we have painted on walls, or created murals upon the ceilings of the greatest cathedrals of Rome. Art is a vision; a passion within one’s soul to create and express, a picture which takes form and comes to life in shape, color, and at times even in word. We have been blessed with masterpieces throughout our history. Great works of art that hang on the walls of museums sculpted in form from the hands of visionaries. Looking around you see each day works of art within reality with architecture and simple things in your everyday life, and even in our second lives , artistic visionaries bring their passions to life.
The artist in Second Life has found a new home and a new outlet for their palate. At the grand opening of the Le Cafe Des Artistes on Frolic’s sim in celebration of SL9B, we had the chance to be enticed by the dark seductive beauty of Fae Varriale as she enticed us into her fantasy realms through paintings and sculptures. Briawinde Magic enveloped us in splashes of color and beautiful abstract paintings filled with depth and movement. Harter Fall, who is known for his hypnotic kinetic artwork mesmerized us with his pieces; his mesh work and complex textures intriguing and unique. Nino Vachan immerses us with his interpretation of Shakespeare’s amazingly fantastical ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ and Rhea Vinter brings Second Life literally to life with her beautiful landscapes that show her journey throughout our virtual world. All five of these artists can be found at Le Cafe Des Artistes.
