Artist's CV

Thalassoudis explores the sunset, taking clichéd subject matter and reinterpreting it as a meditation on life, death, beauty, myth and art.

Jim Thalassoudis has a mission statement that is concise enough to fit on the back of his business card: “The man who paints the sky”.

The allure of ‘magic hour’, the time before sunset to just after, where the sky shows off before the mystery of the night begins; where the days end and the marking of time sets in... . Capturing what normally is elusive and ever-changing, preserving it in paint and made still for all time, allows the viewer to identify meanings that resonate from within. Thalassoudis’s paintings are deeply considered homages to the majesty of the sky.
