S&S GALLERY presents Dulcis Taurog

Dulcis Taurog's Fine Art now dresses the S&S Gallery of Fine Arts. She creates her art primarily within Second Life. All of the colors and shapes are taken snapshots she has taken in SL. No Photoshop and any Paint Programs... Come check out her unique works.

Artist's Statement:

My 'paintings' are primarily created within Second Life. All of the colors and shapes are from snapshots I have taken of objects I created in SL. Sometimes I use a simple program to take cuttings to layer into collage-like paintings. I don't use Photoshop, or any paint programs, any textures taken from outside SL, or any physical painting or drawing tools.

I was motivated to find ways to create images in Second Life by two factors. I had a number of visual ideas I wanted to pursue, and I had no training, experience, or tools in real life to express them. 

I love Japanese and Chinese gardens, calligraphy and landscape paintings. I have seen some abstract paintings that evoke similar feelings, and wished I could express that combination of color, and calligraphic feel of a landscape. I did not have the opportunity until I found the tools within Second Life.

I make objects, color them, then play with lighting and refraction in the Environmentl Settings menu, then I take snapshots when I see the 'painting' that I want.

I hope you enjoy my work. I'd be happy to talk to anyone about what I do, or how I do it.
