I met French pastel artist Silas Merlin (RL: Jean-François Le Saint) several years ago through my friend Zephyr Zabelin, who then owned the artists’ community sim called Artemisia where I was a resident. When Zep left SL I acquired the sim and sought to populate it with the work of both residents and other interesting artists. I offered Silas a small space and I was happy to have a selection of his beautiful pastels on display.
Silas and his doppelganger
Silas has been in and out of SL over the years, but has recently come back stronger than ever. Most recently, he has been working on rendering some of his 2D pastel work into 3D digital sculptures, which he has imported into SL and has also had RL 3D printed editions made. This afternoon was the opening of an exhibition of his new work at the MBK Gallery, curated by Asmita Duranjaya (SLURL below).
