Artist Zero Ball


I ran into artist Zero Ball the other day, at an exhibit of his work near my home in Theretra. He graciously showed me around, answering questions about his many works. Zero works in many mediums - sculpture, images, and many of his pieces are kinetic or interactive. The piece above is entitled "Vortex" and the picture just does not do it justice. It has a very lovely movement to it, and standing inside and using mouselook gives an entirely different experiential view. Zero and his partner Sylver Piccard, who is also an artist, call their brand of animated sculpture "Meta Dimensional Art", or Metilism, full of kinetic energy and motion.

I was intrigued and impressed enough with his work, that I actually agreed to sit for him. While I am not extremely shy about my pixels, I am a bit guarded about where I flash them. Ok, sometimes I am guarded about where I flash them. ;) I felt comfortable with Zero's work, and I was also curious to see what he would do with my image. A few days later, I got a call that the work was done and had been accepted into another gallery opening in Abitibi, at the Symposium gallery. I quickly ran over with a few close friends to see what had become of me ....

..... and I was quite pleased and intrigued with his work. Very heavily shaded, the single nude figure is both exposed and obscured. I find the portrait mesmerizing. I also readily admit that I may be slightly biased. It's titled "Lillie Guildenstern", you can't miss it.

Do come see his unique works at the Asgard gallery in Theretra, and at the Symposium gallery in Abitibi. Zero is available for commissions and portraits, and his art work is both beautiful and thought provoking. He's definitely worth the look!

I'm losing the battle to promote more MALE IMAGERY in SL art. I go to the opening of every gallery/envelope and am met with ranks of pictures of nake "MOTHERS". Where are the teenboys,the guys,the men? Hairy legs are worthy of glorification!!!! See the work of ROBBIE MIMISTROBEL. Join the MANART swell!!! Corrado Butoh(artist)

I forgot to tell you; I did think it was very beautiful. Maybe I should do something like this myself... but I'm not sure what the art market for a kitty would be.

I'm always in the market for a beautiful kitty! ;)

And yah, as far a male subjects, I saw a wonderful exhibit of all men at the Elysian Fields gallery in St. Martin. And who are you calling a "mother"? Perhaps you should advertise your work instead of trashing the work of others, and folks might go.

Give it thought.
