OLDER FICTION (1992-2008)

Collagesity (2014-)

VIRTUAL gallery complex and more next to the Great Rubi Forest, containing my latest sets of collages, or those in the Boos gallery (Boos series), the Red Umbrella (Sam Parr, Embarras, and Stonethrow series), Fal Mouth Moon (61 piece Falmouth series), and Power Tower (Gilatona-Lis), plus a link to the current location of my Edwardston Station Gallery (Art 10×10, composed of 100 collages created between 2004 and 2009).

An example of what this is all about: The exhibit within the Fal Mouth Moon, a re-purposed Moard Ling freebie called “Castle 12”, spans 7 floors, beginning in the basement and extending upwards into floors 1-6. As they were created in early 2014, the collages were also “hung” at the same time. One can say, more than ever, that the (virtual) gallery shaped the art as well as visa versa.

In 2015, the complementary, smaller Red Umbrella gallery was finished using many of the same techniques. Late 2015 brings the creation of the Boos gallery.

If you have a Second Life account, you can visit Collagesity through the following link and walk around the galleries while “inside” your chosen avatar. Turn right at the entry point for the Red Umbrella, left for Fal Mouth Moon. Head west to visit Power Tower and Boos.

Details

To create the pictures for virtual galleries in Second Life, I simply uploaded PNG or JPG images from appropriate folders on my hard drive to my Second Life inventory, and then attached the resulting texture to what’s called a prim. The images in Second Life are not as high resolution as the original images, but increase in quality for newer series.
