Fleur de Lys presents artist Treb Larkham

Please join us for the opening reception of TREB LARKHAM’s show of paintings of flowers.

Opening reception,
Tuesday, 22 April 2008,
at noon 12:00 SL time, or 21:00 CET (in Europe).

I promise you will be surprised. The paintings of TREB LARKHAM bear an incredible expressive realism, hard to be described. There are many tales that may be told about them: the painter spends months on one image, she uses her own photographs, and in some paintings a very old technique, Encaustic painting. However, all this doesn’t tell anything about the intensity, and the impression, given, of being contemporary and timeless at the same time. Plus, the work does not seem to lose this when presented in Second Life. It may change, it might not be the same, but it creates a new illusive reality.

The artists LOOP LOU and MAXXO KLAAR will join and provide us with us for ambient sounds and our traditional after party dance music tunes with an experiment in sound and music mixes. We are happy to welcome the two Pomodoro Bolzano artists.

The Fleur de Lys owners, Olga Wunderlich and Anderson Philbin are proud to host this show on Buyeo 99, 206, 22
