But I really love is the ART EXHIBITION CATALOGE, created by Curator FreeWee Ling:
And here are the winners:
1st Prize: I THOUGHT I HATED HIM by Glyph Graves, Australia
A couple, dancing after the stock exchange data from New York and Shanghai is a damned smart idea and worth the prize.
2nd Prize Joint: MIRROR WITH 4 VIRGINS ON THE SHORES OF DEPRAVITY by Jipe Loon, France
This sculpture is just love, a modern adaption of a calvary or totem. You should really go and see it.
2nd Prize Joint: LOOKING BACK by Carmsie Melody (Australia) & Struthious (USA)
A well done istallation, with an important message and using the possibilities of a virtual world. It was not in my personal top ten, because for me it is to close in styling and structure to the last years work.
2nd Prize Joint: SILENT REFLECTIONS by Krystali Rabeni, England
Beautiful and well built, but seriously, can someone explain the meaning of this work to me? I do not get it.
5th Prize Joint: QUANTUM by Barry Richez, France
A nice reflection of the layers of time.
5th Prize Joint: NEURON SPHERE by Shenn Coleman, France
I don't know what to say about this work. Maybe I have just seen too much similar in Second Life.
5th Prize Joint: ECHO'S REFLECTING POOL by Misprint Thursday, USA
Please go and watch this work. Here you see how creative, smart and funny virtual art can be. Excellent!
8th Prize Joint: FRUIT OF TIME by REBECA BASHLY, Serbia
This work to me has more to do with strenght through delicacy , but soooo well done. I really loooove the filigrane work! So poetic.
8th Prize Joint: REFLECTIONS OF WAVES by Nino Vichan, USA
Light waves possess all colors
Reflections off objects filter these light waves
These reflections are the colors we see
Sound waves possess all tones
Sound waves reflect off objects
Reflections of sound are the echoes we hear
10th Prize Joint: HIDDEN by Rose Borchovski, The Netherlands
This excellent work deserved a better place. It is about the contradiction how we see ourselves, how we are and how others see us.
10th Prize Joint: WHO ARE YOU by Blue Tsuki of Seattle, USA
I am a fan of Blue Tsuki's work usually, but this time I get no answer to the question of the title.
10th Prize Joint: REFLEXIONS OF REFLECTIONS CAROUSEL by Yepar Saez, Martinique Islands in the French Carribean
The reflection of the carousel is different from what we see. Smart and witty!
And here some interesting works more:
Thoth Jantzen: REFLECTING REFLECTIONS
Thoth is flooding the visitors with a constant shower of sounds and colors. Amazing!
Silene Christen: Path to Self Knowledge
Don't we all know that? The more we are constantly flooded with idealized images of others, the less we are able to have a realistic view on ourselves.
Chuckmatrix Clip: The Scent of Her
About 6 months ago I asked Chuckmatrix Clip if he would like to exhibit at Art India Gallery. Luckily he agreed. Chuck submitted, in the meantime, this work to the UWA Contest. The sculpture shows a man lying in bed crying, with a bear in his arms. The work touched me deeply. It requires a large amount of courage for a man, with typical male attitudes, to reveal a self portrait like this.
This sculpture is the final piece of the upcoming exhibition. It tells the story of Chuckmatrix's struggle with mental disease and gives the visitor a strong impression of being hospitalized in an asylum.
The exhibtion will open next week, August 14th at 11 AM SLT. Please be on the lookout for further announcements.
