My first stop was to Nordan Art. This is owned by Flora Nordenskiold and I have added a link to the her blog under our "Blogs of Note" section.
The announcement inworld read:
"Nordan Art exhibit, showing Rebeca Bashly, Rose Borchovski and Helene Lytton, from March 12 to April 30, 2011Nordan Art exhibit, showing Rebeca Bashly, Rose Borchovski and Helene Lytton, from March 12 to April 30, 2011"
The SLURL is here.
|"Memories" Exhibit at Nordan Art|
The three featured artists all bring something special and unique. I had wanted, hoped for and anticipated something that would make me think when I began the trek. I am happy I came here first.. One could feast here for hours.
Rebeca Bashly - Iced
Ms Bashly delivers prim sculptures with an ice or frozen appearance. Following a journey inside the head, inside the mind of one sculpture, one finds the curious litter of thoughts and symbolism. I became trapped trying to ascertain how one side fared so badly on the chess board with so little development by the other side.
Rose Borchovski - Memories Susa Bubbles. And from the minds eye. I found this point of view disturbing. I could feel anxiety. Tension. Is this subjective on my part ? The grimaces and the discomfort of Susa tell me differently. Do you have a memory that does that to you ?
Helene Lytton - I need more Linden. I need to buy "First Time We Met (1)". How does one create so much sensuality in such a small gesture. I am going back.
Toby Zsun is the owner. Erotic Art of the BDSM kind.
Showing Toby Jackman - "Dominance"
