Official Opening Reception of the New BDSM Poetry Art Gallery

I am so very proud to announce the Official Opening Reception of the New BDSM Poetry Art Gallery:

Noon SLT Saturday 25th of February 2012 @ Art Galleries Body, Mind & Spirit
Click here for a cab.

It took a long time to get all the new work up, but I hope it was worth the wait for you. There have been several new poetry artworks added, some with totally new poetry written last year by either Odilia Oldrich or yours truly Zena Zemlja. All the poetry in the new collection is illustrated with photography by the most talented photographer Marcus J. Ranum. Thank you so much, Marcus xxx.

Those familiar to the D/s scene of Second Life and knowing my profile, know that these two Second Life Poetry Artists are one and same person in Real Life. Odilia writes her poetry inspired by the relationship with her Master, Zena writes her poetry inspired by the relationships with her subs.

New Poetry by Odilia are the works called 'Yours' and 'Rubber Fairy'. Odilia's poetry is expressing a deep longing to please her Master. Her first poem 'Desire' was written in 2009 and expresses the longing of wanting to please her Master's every desire.

The Poetry Artwork 'Yours' is about expressing how she longs for her body to always be His. The Poetry Artwork 'Rubber Fairy' expresses the longing to be all her Master ever wants her to be.

New Poetry by Zena is the work called 'Gifts from the heart', inspired by her current sub, and expressing how both sides of the D/s coin are a gift to the other, always to be treasured and never to be taken for granted. There is a Mistress' edition available from this Poetry Artwork on first floor of the gallery, and a Master's Edition on second floor.

Another new poem called 'Naked' has been written from both the sub's heart and the Domme's heart: Odilia was inspired by her Master and Zena by her current sub when this poem was written. The Mistress edition, written by Zena, is available on first floor, the Master's edition, written by Odilia, is available on second floor. The poem is about the depth of the D/s relationship in body, mind & spirit.

Next to the new poems, there are also three new editions of poems that have been exhibited before, but were illustrated with photograpy by other photographers. The whole new collection is now illustrated with photography by Marcus Ranum. I'm a huge fan of Marcus' work, and you can see his originals also exhibited in his own SL Gallery @ Body, Mind & Spirit, and also @ Roissy. Marcus has allowed me to use some of his photos for illustrating my poetry, and I'm so very proud being allowed to use his awesome work to complement my poetry.

So there is a new edition of the poem 'Free', which was one of the first D/s poems I wrote, back in 2007, and inspired by my first SL sub, who was called FreeSpirit. The photo by Marcus expresses the act of going into submission and how it makes you feel free to do so, which is also what the poem is about. This artwork is available in 3 languages: english, french and spanish. A french and a spanish sub translated the poem back in 2007, as they were touched by the depth of the poem and they wanted to translate it for their owners. I granted them permission to translate the poem in their language, and they granted me permission to use their translation for making the french and spanish poetry artworks. You will find the poem in all 3 languages at second floor of the gallery.

There are also new editions of the poetry artworks called 'Only in Your hands', and 'Make me Yours'. These both poetry artworks are also available in 3 languages. The photos by Marcus expresse perfectly what the poetry is saying. The artwork "Make me Yours' is also discussed in the D/s workshop series by Zena, what it means and how to get there in D/s.

All poetry artworks are available in two editions: black background with white letter, or white background with black letters. Each edition is available in 6 colors: original, black and white, natural, blue, pink and vintage. The colors pink and vintage are new added for the whole collection, so also for the poetry artworks called 'Pure', 'Desire', 'Story of O', 'Slavegirl', and 'The essence of submission, which you will all find on first floor of the gallery.

Last but not least I have added two new gifts for groupmembers of Body, Mind & Spirit: one dollarbie gift which you can buy for 1L by wearing your grouptag, and a picks gift which you receive for free for adding the gallery to your profile picks. These two artworks are special editions of the poems 'Only in Your hands' and 'Make me Yours' and as collectibles only available for members of group Body, Mind & Spirit. Be sure to get your copy :)

Of course the gallery is certified as a Legal Quality Art Gallery in Second Life!

The BDSM Poetry Art Gallery is located right at landing point of Art Galleries Body, Mind & Spirit, next to the main gallery of Marcus Ranum on the right and the Sensual Mystic Poetry Art Gallery on the left.

Today there will be Live Music at the reception from 12.30 PM till 01.30 PM by the talented Joaquin Gustav. If you never heard Joaquin play his guitar before, you are in for a treat! So put on your dancing shoes and come on over :)
