The rich colors in the Gallery 7 build were a must when it serves as the backdrop to equally power art. Tallulah’s work can never go unobserved. No on is going to pass from the exhibition hall on their way to Gallery 8 without stopping short. Her work is that powerful.
When you visit. Take the time to study the subtle layers. Talullah says every painting is a story. What will you read in these rich splashes of color and commanding images?
In the Artist’s Words
Since as far back as I remember, it seems I have had a pencil in my hand marking whatever paper I had available with the strange goings-on in my head.
I have been painting and drawing all my life– but have never exhibited any of my actual “art” before doing so in Second Life. I was trained in art college, in fashion design, and for a while had my own fashion design business. Currently, I am working in photography.
My inspiration comes from many sources, but the common thread in all my creative works–be it fashion, a photograph, or a painting–tells a story in some form or another. Some of the stories are deeply autobiographical; others could be inspired by a chance snippet of conversation, a captured unintended moment caught in a random photograph, a memory, or a line in a song or book…
A lot of my work explores childhood memories, feelings,or dreams and contains much of the surrealism and symbolism found there, but each one contains an emotion I was feeling strongly at the time. I have tried to capture that feeling in the images., and in doing so have realized that the very effect of layering the image and textures is suggestive of the way our memories are layered on top of each other and each whole is the sum of many parts.
I work in a variety of mediums. This exhibition is image layering , which I use as an inspiration for paintings.
I hope you enjoy exploring each piece, and thank you for your appreciation!
