It is a semi-nocturnal world that Jim Thalassoudis’s art lives. When viewing his works, we walk the streets, drive past the motels and wonder at the light that conjures more than the zenith’s transparency. Thalassoudis invites us to rediscern the ‘real’—painting worldly portals that illuminate the netherworld of our subconscious.
Thalassoudis's paintings translate beautifully on paper as giclee prints. The highest quality pigment inks convey unmistakably the artists hand that has painted the glowing neon lines. His work signifies our obsession with bright, shiny objects.
Jim Thalassoudis has exhibited extensively over the past thirty years. His work is held in very significant public and corporate collections including the Art Gallery of South Australia, Gold Coast City Art Gallery, Ballarat Art Gallery, Geelong Art Gallery, Victoria Parliament House Collection, United Airlines, Singapore, Southcorp Collection, ANA Hotel, Sydney, J.B. Were & Son, Crown Casino, Melbourne and many others.
