You will always be in my heart

On Saturday 7 November at 2.10 pm Paris time my beloved Partner Nitro Fireguard passed away.
Although I knew this was inevitable, it still was a shock. After all nobody wants to loose a loved one. The only redeeming thought is Nitro doesn't have to suffer these horrible pains anymore.

Nitro and I, we had 4 wonderful years together in Second Life. 
It all started when we met at the installation 'The Path' on 17 October 2011.
We flirted, fooled around, got partnered on Valentines day 2012 and started a gallery. 

We both worked very hard in/for the gallery, which we enjoyed a lot.
How bizarre that eggszackily 4 years later, even on the same day, Nitro made his own 3D mesh sculpture installation 'The Paths of Life'
, which opened on 17 October. 
I am truly happy he could be present at this opening party, enjoying the good spirit and the many artist friends attending that evening. It was his goodbye to SL.

Nitro loved art, he was a very creative person, always had been in RL and SL. Over the years his 3D mesh sculptures were getting better and better, and he gained name as a sculptor.
Most of his sculptures and installations (like the Maze) were shown at Nitroglobus

walking Nitro's maze

He exhibited his works alone or with others (who doesn't remember the exhibition 'Hidden Faces' he did together with Mistero Hifeng in January 2013).
Last but certainly not least, there were his sculptures in the main hall of Nitroglobus, as he always 'fitted' the gallery to the theme of the exhibitions by guest artists. That's what made Nitroglobus gallery a unique place.
So unreal to know this will never happen again. 

Second Life is empty without him and his always loving care for me. Now that you are gone sweetie I realize more and more how dear you were to me my soulmate!
Gros bisous mon cheri, may you rest in peace.

You will always be in my heart!

'What If' by Senna, MM & Nitro @ Nitroglobus gallery

poster for the exhibition 'What If', made by MM (Mysterr)

Nitro and I are proud to present the work of the talented MM (Mysterr) and famous photographer Senna Coronet, in our gallery.
Senna is well known and respected by the entire SL art world for his high quality awesome photography.  For MM this is her first exhibition. 
We love both their work, which is so full of expression and emotions, something that's not easy to capture in Second Life. 

A sincere thank you to both the artists, whose work we think fits so well together because both artists play with light, shadows and emotions.

For this exhibition 'What If' Nitro created an installation of mesh sculpture groups of people walking a path. There are many paths one can choose from: the regular path, and the more difficult, windy and less traveled ones: it's a choice.
The regular path shows people walking the path of life, getting children, growing old and ends with Sisyphus rolling his stone up the hill, a heavy task.
The various windy paths lead to different endings; one brings you to angels, the others to demons.
 'What If' you would have chosen the other path instead of the path you walked in life?
You'll never know.

Don't miss it. Here's your taxi to our gallery

Fade to Grey, a temp exhibition at Nitroglobus gallery by Mr. B. (Burke Bode)

poster for the temp exhibit made by Mr. B.

When Burke Bode (Mr. B.) saw that our gallery was empty he contacted me and said 'lets meet coz I can help and place some work on your walls'. And so it happened. Within 1,5 hour the art works were installed on the walls and I announced. Wow, never ever was this fast :-)

Come and see Mr. B.'s temp exhibit 'Fade to Grey
Very B., daring, sexy, hot ... need I say more, worth your visit for sure!
Every day one of the now COLORED WORKS will turn GREY, so if you want to buy the colored version, be FAST ....
All the money goes to our gallery (blows a kiss to Mr. B.), appreciated!

SaveMe Oh, who doesn't know her in the SL art world, came to our gallery and did a show. I made some snapshots. I must admit I really liked the very up-to-date refugees boats, although I did miss the red shirt on the boys.
