Aesthete & Amateur Part 1: The Power of Contrast
The fictitious credentialed art critic, Eleanor Medier, and her less-than-professional husband, Heavy Writer, visit Space 4 Art in Second Life® and review the work of three artists.
The fictional pair, Eleanor, the art critic, and her less-educated practical husband, Heavy, discovered Space4Art when following Louly Lou’s work for the last issue, Sim Street Journal #10. Thinking to keep their investigation simple, little did they know they were about to discover a large complex of many buildings, levels, and plat- forms of installations. There is no quick visit to this location, and this is not an attempt to be comprehensive, as that would take up a whole issue of Sim Street Journal.
During the truce between Heavy and Eleanor over aesthetics and lifestyle choices (see the last issue for their self-sabotaging manipulations), they don’t pause to go home, or even take a breath. Momentum often leads to many late nights in SL! Jumping from building to building and level to level, they chose three artists to review, as they represent the variety. Soon lost in debating originality, abstraction, and validity of both:
PART 2: ChapTer Kronfeld displays highly original drawings made with the most common of techniques.
PART 3: Harter Fall brings kinetic progressions to abstraction.
PART 4: Asmita Duranjaya expresses femininity in new ways.
