Gruppo La'bun and Paolo Minoli

Behold an interactive collaboration of sculpture and installation. Paolo Minoli, a painter and sculptor combines his talents with that of Gruppo Labun, mixing sound with light and color play on shapes.

Interesting result in real life...far more interesting perhaps in Second Life with scripting possibilities.

Though its been done before in SL...but not this way.

Edward Weston's Photography

I feel like I'm discovering his work for the first time. All I can say is "Wow!".....photos from the 1930's....still modern and awe-inspiring.

The Gallery of the Minotaur is no more

I've removed my gallery from Second Life. I have no plans to rebuild anywhere else.

Stronger Dance - Can't Please Everybody

At the advice of Japanese artist, Comet Moragi, I embarked on an ambitious attempt to make the largest sculptures I could without using those pesky mega prims. She also was the person who challenged me to add scripts to my sculptures. I make static sculptures for Primagery in Limited Editions. I make them miniature to display in the home. I make large scripted sculptures for outdoor installations as one-of-a kind. I am willing to display the large Primagery sculptures but at this juncture, have not offered them for sale. The large sculptures have particle scripts in them and do not resize with any controlled success. Bettina Tizzy thinks I should consider using a resizer script for my primagery sculptures so that potential purchasers have more options. This weekend I will change "Assuage" because I haven't sold one of them and can change the sculpture without consequence. The sculptures I make are expensive because they are limited in quantity and will no longer be available once the edition is exhausted. It takes months to put together a show like the one at anandra. Its no easy undertaking and its impossible to please everyone.

The formal Opening Reception is Monday May 11, 5-7 pm showcasing all new Limited Editions, a total of 8 series. I have been working on these since the January show. In between I completed two series, Assuage and Mystic, that were debuted at the Aho Museum.
The anandra Contemporary Art Forum is a wonderful setting and kyra Gaea has a talent for displaying my work in its best light. Its an awesome show and I hope everyone takes the time to come see it.
Also included in this show is a chandelier that I made from a shape in the series "Stronger". Its under 20 prims of rotating textures and shapes with sparkle particles in rose and pink and gold colors. It was inspired by the round assemblage of found items in the chandelier by Stuart Haygarth which i included in the April 22 blog. I've made a few others in various colors and reduced prims and scripts but this is the first one to be shown in a gallery.
