SL Surreal: the Collected Works of Eves Rodenberger
Opening Sunday, August 29 at 11:00AM and showing through October
Galerie de la Vie (SLURL)
Eves and Galerie curator Apollo Reinard have installed a wonderful selection of the artist’s inworld landscape and still life portraits. Many of the scenes are familiar to long-time SL residents — from AM Radio’s Far Away to Sextan Shepherd’s Nemo sims — but the images are manipulated to give a feeling that is at once both more true-to-life and yet more strange and remote.
Eves Rodenberger’s childhood was filled with intense wonder of the world around her. She found a creative joy in taking pictures to capture the beauty in that world. Her passion for expression developed into a desire to tell stories and show everyone how amazing things are when viewed through the perspective of her own personal lens.
She entered the world of SL with that same passion of exploration. After some time, it became clear that there were stories to tell which were only possible in this world of dreamy virtual landscapes. Exploration once again has infused her with a desire to tell stories.
Eves’s work can be seen in several galleries in SL, as well as on Flickr.
Galerie de la Vie is provided as a service to art by the residents of Artemisia.
