Portraits and Narratives in Second Life

A new Blog post by Inara Pey about the Itakos Art Gallery.

The Stolen Child

A new story is told at the Itakos Art Gallery. The Stolen Child was born from the meeting between CybeleMoon and Akim Alonzo, sharing a passion for Celtic legends and the magical scenarios they evoke. Photos of CybeleMoon and Akim Alonzo’s scenic installation interpret the poem The Stolen Child (1889) by W.B. Yeats, in which it is said that Fairies are not benevolent creatures at all, attracted by strength and

Portraits and some Other Circumstances

Already hosted at the Austin Gallery on Second Life in June, this revamped Akim Alonzo exhibition will reside again for the summer in the Itakos Gallery’ s Black Pavilion.  Akim shows us some of his revisited or unpublished female portraits, united by a sensual look. The Circumstances are particular moments, captured by the artist, in which something unique and unrepeatable happens like in a virtual instant and charged for Akim

The Edgy World of M

Maloe Vansant returns to the Itakos Art Gallery with a collection of 18 photos that want to tell us about an unusual and hidden side of her imaginary world. A dark tale, with deep blacks, passionate and sharp reds that show perhaps fears and unconscious desires mixed with sensuality.  As the Artist says : “Always been attracted to the freaky and edgy things in life, i try to see the

Water and a Matrix: Reflections on life by Akim Alonzo – article by Inara Pey

It may seem a little unfair presenting two reviews of exhibitions at the same gallery space in such short order, but the fact is the Itakos Project, curated by Akim Alonzo, is currently hosting exhibitions by Awesome Fallen and Akim himself which I personally feel should not be missed. Having covered Awesome’s Simply Dreaming just a day ago (see Awesome Fallen at the Itakos Project in Second Life), with this piece, I’m diving into the what

A Look on Secondlife Women

With this exhibition we celebrate 4 years of life of the Soul Portraits-Itakos Art Gallery group on the Flickr platform, with more than 5700 photos published by about 250 photographers registered in the group. A collective exposition that focuses on female portraits, and the selected artists all have a particular and personal eye on the emotions that a second life avatar can express. Feminine looks that touch, sometimes deep and

Inara Pey Modemworld Review

In 2017, Akim Alonzo launched the Itakos Project as a Linden Endowment for the Arts installation with the aim of presenting the work of SL photographers who, through their images, engage upon story-telling or presenting the ideas of stories, or who seek to present beauty and emotion through their study of the avatar and the worlds around it (see The Itakos Project in Second Life). However, I confess I lost track

Awesome Fallen Simply Dreaming

When I asked Awesome Fallen to describe her art to me, she replied: simply dreaming. In fact, this multi-faceted Spanish artist embodies an essential dreamlike feature in her photography. Images between the surreal and the ironic that are made of the matter of dreams, quoting Shakespeare. A dream-like, sometimes candid and tender, sometimes disturbing and gloomy, sometimes with dark colors, sometimes pastel and shaded tones, like the visions imagined in
