Recently I’ve visited the LA Gallery several times after new exhibits have opened. I’ve been aware of the place since about February of last year but it has only been during the last few weeks that I’ve been able to check it out.
Opening earlier today is Visions by Kimeu Korg at Gallery Level 1 South.
Part of the artist statement:
“There you will see my own Vision about how i understand the world and life of Photography. From me a good picture have to tell a story, a flash of Life, a moment in time and space, can be done in so many ways and Second Life is an excellent platform from create moments.”
Across from Korg’s exhibit is Transitions by Myra Wildmist which opened on October 22.
From Myra’s artist CV:
My art primarily explores the freedom online communities, specifically Second Life, provide, allowing you to set aside your cultural roles and explore other roles. Real life cultural roles are necessary for a functioning society, but they are often extremely confining, almost forcing people into pigeon holes of expected behavior. Second Life gives us all the opportunity to slip out of our pigeon holes and be almost anything we can imagine.
My work is done entirely in-world using SL Windlight, effects, settings, and filters.
Second Life is my medium.”
Above Myra’s exhibit on Level 2, is Photography by John Brianna which has been open the longest. The artist bio contains info on his other exhibits and links to follow his work as do the bios of the other photographers.
Information about Fuyuko (wintergeist) and her Club L A and Gallery can be obtained at the landing. Walking through the gallery and out the back, you’ll find a peaceful park and then an office/studio space with a catalog of Fuyuko’s work.
