The Valo Gallery hosts several interesting artists: ArtWolf Eternal, Andy Burroughs, Asmita Duranjaya, Athos Seelowe, Burk Bode, Cica Ghost, Isabel Hermano, st3m,  Noke Yuitza, Quika Basevi, Sapphoria Shilova, Uleria Caramel and Wuwai Chun. Hopefully I have not overseen any.You shoud take your time and explore. I already wanted to write about this gallery especially because of Andy Burrough's "Psycho Candy's Last Supper".

Psycho Candy's Last Supper featuring: chefkoch, Honour Mc Millan, Lizzie Gudkov, Loquacia Loon, Lullaby Kira, Nicolex Moonwall, Sasha00 Laryukov, Sina Souza (sinalein), Toyono, Tutsy Nararathna, Ziki Questi and.....drums.....Nitro Fireguard as Jesus!

Andy invested a lot work for this modern version of da Vinci's famous painting to create the poses. With beer an hamburgers on the table it is really a modern version which is fun to explore. Today I invited some friends for a photo to show you all poses at once and it was really fun. Thank you all!

Louly Loon: "Time Out"

What a nice story: A work of ChapTer Kronfeld (to be found in her beautiful gallery) called "Zeitdruck" inspired her for the current installation, It turned out as a beautiful Collection of time pieces.

I love the galleries you are writing about, not least the Valo Gallery, but Quan, I wished you hadn´t highlighted Andy´s work there. Her artist info is sooo typically american and delusionist. This is what she says in her artist "bio":

"All images appearing in the Psycho Candy Gallery are created and signed by Andy Burroughs and are the exclusive property of Andy Burroughs and are protected under the United States and International Copyright laws.

That's funny Apmel. Andy is German and she knew that I wanted to write about the work.

Quan Lavender said...

Oh and I should add that also under American and International law fair use of photos and photos of artworks is allowed. Fair use means to use the photo for an art critic.

A great list of exhibit, Quan. And thank you for adding Louly Loon's exhibit at the Art'e Gallery.

Quan's absolutely right. No matter what restrictions Andy writes, copyright law allows fair use ("fair dealing" in the UK) and she can't revoke that right by fiat. That can include manipulation -- at least in the US, courts have been considering transformation as highly significant. On the other hand sometimes US courts make a rather odd distinction between parody and satire, protecting the former more than the latter. Wikipedia's article on fair use is pretty good: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fair_use

This is an issue that I have pretty strong feelings about. From the Disney Corporation to SL content creators, a lot of people have been striving to eliminate fair use, which is ultimately an effort to eliminate freedom of speech.
