Milly Sharple Interview

Milly Sharple - white backgroundWhat was briefly your experience in Second Life?
When I came to SL in September 2008 and I discovered that there were art galleries here, I was really excited as I had been exhibiting successfully for some years in RL.  I approached a curator to find out how it all worked – at that point, I hadn’t even rezzed a prim, so I needed really basic information!  When I said I am a fractal artist, the curator told me I was wasting my time because fractal art isn’t art and that he had never seen any fractal art that could be called ‘art’.  So, I set up my own little gallery and ‘played’ with my art, teaching myself to do things with it and simply hanging it for my own pleasure.  About 18 months later, a kind curator visited my gallery and loved my fractals.  She offered to exhibit my work  and since then, I  have not looked back.   SL offers us another outlet for creativity – one where we are not limited by what we can do with our art.  I am always in awe of the talent there is in this virtual world and I love visiting galleries and seeing what other people do with their artistic talents.

When did you discover your artistic passion?
I have loved art since childhood and always have some project or other on the go.  Before discovering the world of fractals and digital art, I painted and drew and did many crafts, with a special passion for 3D paper sculpture – using only cuts and folds for definition on white paper.  I love fractal art and more recently have been delving into creating abstracts using my fractals as the basis for new pieces.

Do you practice the art only in SL or in RL also ?
I am an artist in RL as well as in SL.  SL affords us far more artistic creativity than we have in RL, enabling us to transform our art and create new objects and animations with it.

Where do you scoop the inspiration for your works in SL?
My work in SL is mostly created in RL and I am inspired by nature and so I love to create beautiful fractal flowers and other images that reflect organic objects and nature.   My emotions affect my art greatly and those who know me, would very easily be able to tell what my frame of mind is from the work I am currently creating.

What are the main features of your works?
First I am a fractal artist but I also make objects like pottery and other sculpted items which I texture with my fractals.  I create abstracts using my fractal art as the basis of the work.   I love working with all colour and I am equally happy working with pastels as I am with vibrant and bold colours.  I love to mix unusual colour combinations and make them work together and also like to play with light and shadow.

Is there a theme or a key to the works you exhibit here in ArtEdLand?
Since my ‘white’ fractal art is quite popular with a lot of people, I have decided to create a new range of ‘white’ fractals.  This really means they are on a white background rather than the usual black most people use.

What is your prediction for the evolution of artistic languages ​​in SL?
I hope that people will encourage newcomers and help them to find their way in the art community.  We should be able to create and maintain a strong art community because there are so many talented people in our virtual world.  Curators should be more approachable and kinder to people trying to get started because you never really know when you are looking at a diamond instead of a lump of coal.  Artistic talent, like any other talent, should be allowed to flourish so that we may all share in each other’s talents.

Intervista a Dragola Demonge

Dragola fotoCom’è iniziata brevemente la tua esperienza in Second Life?
Entrata su sl per caso il 1° febbraio 2008.
Ho capito da subito che il camping, di una noiosità mortale, non faceva per me. Così per gioco ho iniziato a lavorare sui prims. Oggi, prendendomi anche in giro.. mi definisco una “falegnama”, mi piace poter creare con le mie stesse mani e sperimentare sempre tecniche nuove, perchè su questo metaverso tutto sembra possibile.
Indubbiamente  istrionica, amante dell’arte e del minimal design, adoro manipolare prims, fotografare, girovagare  e  scovare  i particolari del metaverso.

Quando hai scoperto la tua passione artistica?
Credo di averla avuta fin da piccola, costruendo oggetti  ed abiti per la mia Barbie :)

Pratichi questa tua passione in SL o anche in RL?
In Real è limitata alla realizzazione di piccoli lavori grafici per gli amici.

Da dove attingi l’ispirazione per le tue opere?
Spesso le mie opere nascono da impulsi emozionali.

Quali sono le principali caratteristiche estetiche dei tuoi lavori?
Non credo di poter rispondere a questa domanda, tutto nasce dal voler sperimentare  in base ad uno stato d’animo, quindi i miei lavori credo che siano ” mutevoli “.

I lavori che esporrai qui ad ArtEdLand hanno un tema specifico o una chiave di lettura?
Esporrò dei lavori che sfruttano l’interazione  tra Pensieri e emozioni relative a questo metaverso. Indi nascono da un tema specifico, ovviamente la chiave di lettura  sarà diversa  in quanto  dipenderà  dal modo in cui si guarderanno le diverse opere.

Come prevedi si evolveranno i linguaggi artistici in SL nel futuro?
(risata)… mio caro intervistatore… e che so’ Paragnosta? lol:P
