MATHILDE VHARGON - Artist Information 2019

A former classical musician, I began making sculpture in Second Life 10 years ago, and soon became more focused on digital painting, which I create using only Gimp and ArtRage programmes.

My paintings suggest themselves to me a little at a time without conscious planning. I often use small sections of them as materials to develop into new paintings. I also like to create kaleidoscope and mandala versions of some of my original paintings.

I love strong colours and flowing abstract forms. You will often find ambiguous suggestions that lead the viewer to imagine various possibilities and interpretations. I am most happy when my art creates a chain of associations and questions about life and humanity.

The possibility that we might touch someone with a common connection, making them think and feel in response to our work, is the most wonderful thing about making art.


ABOUT THE LEAF

A single leaf is my artist's mark and signature. After October 2011 I began to include one somewhere in every painting. My initials are now on the leaf. Sometimes the leaf looks different--a main focus or blending into the background. Its placement means something to me, and reflects the idea or mood, if only to say it was there--a part of the action or the scene.


Leaves Along the Path

On a pathway made of
Moments
special and mundane,
beautiful and ugly,
glorious and inglorious,
like strewn leaves along the way.
So are we.

-- Mathilde Vhargon

Until 2014 I was the owner of TWO SHORES GALLERY OF FINE ART in Second Life. I spent several years in another virtual world grid after that, and have now returned to Second LIfe. You can find current exhibit locations in my SL profile picks, and my ongoing exhibit LMs are below.
