Primtings is a prim'd paintings gallery.

We are a museum dedicated to the interactive exploration of famous paintings and artwork brought to virtual life via 3D prims and other techniques.

A web preview of our exhibits is available on the panel to the right. Each display is also available for view in Second Life, an immersive open-ended 3d virtual world. Some exhibits also have 3d previews in SketchUp.

2d: Andrea Pozzo | 3d: Ina Centaur | Primtings Gallery: Baroque
“A primting is a painting ‘interpreted into 3d' with prims—the idea of the Primtings Trompe l'oeil Gallery is to work this magic of prims to turn Pinocchio into a real boy—via a whole bunch of 2d perspective—illusion paintings, given life and (more)
Death of Marat Death of Marat
2d: Jacques-Louis David | 3d: AM Radio | Primtings Gallery: Neoclassicism
I built this recreation of David's Death of Marat as an excercise. What started as a recreation of the fabric draped over the tub became a challenge to recreate the entire mood of the original work. David sought not only to depict an event, but to define (more)

2d: Georges Braque | 3d: zephyru Zapedzki | Primtings Gallery: Modernism
We all know that everything in SL starts with a cube, so now I tribute one of the two fathers of Cubism, Georges Braque, the other father is the well known Picasso. This work is all inside a black cube, I tried to give a cubistic look to all pieces wi (more)
Don Quixote Don Quixote
2d: Pablo Picasso | 3d: Ub Yifu | Primtings Gallery: Surrealism
That original ink drawing by Picasso must have been made very quickly with a free hand and a lot of spontaneity that gives that special feeling to it. So i tried to reproduce it in 3D and keep the same feeling but my work was much more long and hard to (more)
Exit Exit
2d: Ed Ruscha | 3d: Wyatt Wellman | Primtings Gallery: Contemporary
"Sometimes found words are the most pure because they have nothing to do with you. I take things as I find them. A lot of these things come from the noise of everyday life." —Ed Ruscha, cited in: Ed Ruscha, (Ed.), They Called Her Styrene, London 2000 (more)
Space Elephant Space Elephant
2d: Salvador Dali | 3d: Ub Yifu | Primtings Gallery: Surrealism
"It is moving through space towards the heavens, legs stretched out and more delicate in the weightless atmosphere, the space elephant carries an obelisk, symbol of the progress of technology." Surealistic figures are a great inspiration for SL where (more)
Shuttlecocks Shuttlecocks
2d: Claes Oldenburg | 3d: Gatz Morang | Primtings Gallery: Contemporary
The RL setting plays an important role for these sculptures, where the main museum building is a large, rectangular Beaux Arts building centered on a large green lawn. Coosje van Bruggen envisioned the lawn as a badminton court, with the building as the n (more)
The Human Condition The Human Condition
2d: Rene Magritte | 3d: zephyru Zapedzki | Primtings Gallery: Surrealism
I decided to build an InWorld tribute to one of my favourite Painters of all time, Rene Magritte, so I chosed the “The Human Condition” (1935) cause I want to bring the concept of those distinctive features of human existence to SL, “Why was I born? Why a (more)
The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living
2d: Damien Hirst | 3d: Ina Centaur | Primtings Gallery: Contemporary
Like its RL grandfather, this virtual version did not actually create the submerged shark, but illustrates a profound conceptualization; in this case, it is an interactive extension, where the viewer can either join or replace the shark (by taking a copy (more)
Persistence of Memory Persistence of Memory
2d: Salvador Dali | 3d: Voodoo Shilton | Primtings Gallery: Surrealism
I've long been a fan of surrealist artists (M. C. Escher and Salvador Dali in particular) and thought a SL interpretation of Dali's classic was long overdue. For me the melting watches are a metaphor for the relativity of time and space, a relatively new (more)
Controlled Substances Key Painting 3'' Spot Controlled Substances Key Painting 3'' Spot
2d: Damien Hirst | 3d: Dekka Raymaker | Primtings Gallery: Contemporary
At first I considered doing one of his vitrines with an animal suspended in formaldehyde, but thought that would just look like direct copy from real life into Second Life. Then in a review about the vitrines I read "seducing the viewer into the work visu (more)
Time Transfixed Time Transfixed
2d: Rene Magritte | 3d: Blue Tsuki | Primtings Gallery: Surrealism
Rene Magritte practiced a particularly elegant flavor of surrealism that influenced me long ago and resonates to this day. I chose this particular image not only because it is one of my favorites, but also because it exemplifies that simplicity of strange (more)
Stars Stars
2d: MC Escher | 3d: Wizard Gynoid | Primtings Gallery: Surrealism
I have always dreamed of being able to fly into M.C. Escher's paintings, and in particular into Escher's "Stars" with its enigmatic chameleons floating through infinite black space. Sometimes in my real life dreams I think that I accomplished that wish, (more)
The Elephant Celebes The Elephant Celebes
2d: Max Ernst | 3d: Kacy Despres | Primtings Gallery: Surrealism
I loved the dark whimsy of this piece. The mammoth, clanking metal elephant, looking like Tim Burton's version of Dumbo, in stark contrast to the pale naked bust created such an intense energy in the piece. The dark, brooding sky and landscape lent an alm (more)
Seascape Seascape
2d: Max Ernst | 3d: Kacy Despres | Primtings Gallery: Surrealism
I was drawn to the calm serenity of this painting, an idyllic seaside landscape, with Ernst's usual dose of the surreal. This piece contrasted nicely with my others, I loved the colors and the airy feel of the scene. This was another I build I chose to ta (more)
Ambiguous Figures Ambiguous Figures
2d: Max Ernst | 3d: Kacy Despres | Primtings Gallery: Surrealism
There is something so mischievous, almost childlike in this painting. To me it's the quintessential pair of bad guys, who aren't really bad at all, constantly plotting and scheming, with rarely a desired outcome. The shapes in this painting were reflecte (more)
Synchronization... Synchronization...
2d: Jose Pedro | 3d: zephyru Zapedzki | Primtings Gallery: Surrealism
Second Life has the capacity to allow that the most bold Surrealistic/metaphysical concept in Real life, become an In—World triviality. Thus, gave me the amazing oportunity to touch (or avatouch) the interior of my canvas. This Art Installation is based o (more)
Rotoreliefs Rotoreliefs
2d: Marcel Duchamp | 3d: Paula Dix | Primtings Gallery: Op Art
After giving up painting, Duchamp was very interested in 3D representation, a way that, combined with his linking of humor, would take him to the creation of the Ready Mades and things that looked to be something else (well, thats all what art is about, (more)
Oedipus Rex Oedipus Rex
2d: Max Ernst | 3d: Kacy Despres | Primtings Gallery: Surrealism
This painting spoke to me as soon as I saw it, and I just had to try to make it come to life. It presented definite challenges as I tried to use as few sculpted prims in these works as possible. I created the majority of the textures by hand, wanting to t (more)
At The First Clear Word At The First Clear Word
2d: Max Ernst | 3d: Kacy Despres | Primtings Gallery: Surrealism
This was the first piece I built and I was struck by the clean lines and vivid colors of the original painting. I love Ernst's work, his version of surrealism speaks to me, and conveys such emotion, even when the canvas is filled with what seems to be a r (more)
Son of Man Son of Man
2d: Rene Magritte | 3d: Dekka Raymaker | Primtings Gallery: Surrealism
I could have chosen any number of surrealist paintings for interpretation in SL, but this is one of my favorite ones, Son of Man, 1964 by René Magritte (1898–1967). I think many surrealists would have loved the concept of Second Life. Magritte was a B (more)
Vincent's Room Vincent's Room
2d: Vincent van Gogh | 3d: Dekka Raymaker | Primtings Gallery: Post-Impressionism
Created to illustrate the dimension and ratios approximate to its real life size and an attempt to capture its essence with colour and minimal use of textures mostly available in Second Life. It became evident during the build, of the brilliance of Van Go (more)
Fountain Fountain
2d: Marcel Duchamp | 3d: Paula Dix | Primtings Gallery: Dada
What called my attention to Duchamp was the way he works the ideas and not just the image or shape; he actually play with ideas, mixing the plastic and the literary, making a very rich way of doing art that, even if not exactly popular, has many many foll (more)
Algenib Algenib
2d: Victor Vasarely | 3d: Shellina Winkler | Primtings Gallery: Op Art
“The art of tomorrow will be a collective treasure or it will not be ART at all” “L'art de demain sera tresor commun ou ne sera pas.”

Relativity Relativity
2d: MC Escher | 3d: Solkide Auer | Primtings Gallery: Surrealism
“It is impossible for the inhabitants of different worlds to walk or sit or stand on the same floor, because they have differing perceptions of what is horizontal and what is vertical. Yet they may well share the use of the same stai (more)
Black Square Black Square
2d: Kasimir Malevich | 3d: Cel Edman | Primtings Gallery: Suprematism
Malevich somehow pushed Cubism to Suprematism, with his black square, an icon for that period and abstract art. Expressing myself with the computergraphics medium, I slowly seem to move from abstract towards a kind of realism again. And used a lot of litt (more)
Steam Stag at Sharkey's Steam Stag at Sharkey's
2d: George Bellows | 3d: Bryn Oh | Primtings Gallery: Realism
This piece is based on “Stag at Sharkey's,” a painting by George Bellows. The strong use of line in the composition and his ability to create a dynamic sense of movement in the figures is what drew me to this work. When creating “Steam Stag at Sharke (more)
A Lawn Being Sprinkled A Lawn Being Sprinkled
2d: David Hockney | 3d: Ina Centaur | Primtings Gallery: Pop Art
In making the 3d version of this original 2d painting by David Hockney, I took the liberty of using a number of technological toys at my disposal, including remants of an unofficial undergrad thesis. Image processing has always been a hobby for me, and, n (more)

Paul Klee — “Twittering Machine”, German Bauhaus movement. Highly influential piece of work in my RL painting ‘career'... apart form very appealing color scheme and the conceptul brilliance of simple form — I fell in love with this piece immidiately as I (more)
Nighthawks Nighthawks
2d: Edward Hopper | 3d: Tezcatlipoca Bisiani | Primtings Gallery: Realism
The counter in Hopper's iconic American painting is mysterious. Triangle or lopsided square? Where, exactly, do the coffee urns go? In at least one other rendition (a stage set for a play) the placement is completely different than mine, and yet it “works (more)
