INTERVIEW WITH IMMO JALASS,

International Contemporary Artist on March 20th, 2015

Hello Immo

Here are a few questions that we can start with and please just answer in the way you feel most comfortable.

Were you creative as a child and if so how old were you and what do you remember from this experience?

At the age of fourteen, I started drawing with pencil and ink; all the old farm houses in Hamburg-Volksdorf and the landscapes around.

When did you realize that you were an artist?

At the age of twenty-six, on Ibiza working with pencils, color pencils, ink, gouache, water color and oil; working out themes oriented on the figuetrees, the rockets, the sandbeaches and the water.  Doing sketching and drawing sessions with a sculptor friend.

What has influenced your artworks. Other artists, Teachers, (I am referring to your artwork before you transitioned) ?

Jens Cords in Hamburg. He was preparing his own oil colors. My sculptor friend on Ibiza and many other artists around as Bechthold, David Walsh.

Did you have any formal training?

No, never. I am completely self taught. As such I have been working for the Famous Artists Schools in Amsterdam as an Art Instructor for more than a year.

When you began to transition to digital art, what led you to do this?

Already in 1972, I did some theoretical study on computer basics in Amsterdam.

In 1994, I started to work with my first own computer inspired by a friend in Hamburg, just for interest and

in 1998 I began my first artistical approaches with Corel Draw. It has been just the curiosity searching for new possibilities to express the feelings and thoughts of my life.

Can you explain the difference in media – one is very tactile and the other is created through technology – how does this affect your process?

I wouldn’t say that the difference in media affects or affected the process of creating. I am loving, for example, all the possibilities of getting a change in color and structure on a whole picture with a few mouse clicks. On the other hand, I am some times too lazy to work out more details.

 

Now I am creating digital art works since years and some of them makes me look at them again, again and again, wondering some times how have I been able to create this whatever. Associating the world around and reflecting my feelings, means giving my interpretation. Sometimes I feel like being some kind of an organism directed by the subconscious, by feelings, moments, situations, technical possibilities, wondering what will come out next.

Can you talk about your art making process a little bit in the transition work?

In most cases I started with one or two photos. In the meantime though, it has been a long time since I started with a completely new photo. In fact, today there is already a huge stock of existing digitally created art works and more often it happens that I go on working on already existing pictures, from which new pictures are created. Furthermore, I am more often copying an existing picture into another already-existing art work, giving transparency to it, and thus making a completely new picture, where new forms and colors appear as if they were coming out of infinity. These new forms and pictures can end up taking forms and shapes that I myself, have not even thought of. Fortunately, as a digital artist I am able to go on working on an existing picture without losing the original (the first) picture. In this situation a whole new motif-sequence can develop.

Do you choose a theme or series of art works or do you work one at a time.

I am working on all my art works one after the other, some times only just a few things, often until a new variation is created worth to be saved as a completely new art work or just a new piece in an existing series. Seldom having a certain theme, it is mostly a completely unconscious process choosing a theme to work on.

What is your greatest accomplishment that you are happy about in your career as a professional artist

In Progress: “Future Fun Conquest“ a digitally created art show by Immo Jalass at the Carl Benz Cloud University. A new kind of art meets a new kind of Gallery. The opening will be on the 30th of march this year.

Have you had any interviews or reviews and if so can we link this page to them so our readers can learn more about you?

  1. Solomon Walker writing about me on the occasion of my solo exhibition “Immos universe” at the MoDFA (autumn 2014):  http://galeriejalass.tripod.com
  2. ArticulAction’s interview with me on:  http://galeriejalass.tripod.com/interviewed.htm
  3. Several reviews on http://galeriejalass.tripod.com/rezensionen.htm

Do you have any comments or thoughts that may improve the current contemporary art world?

Generally needed is the development of facilities to show digital art works. For example galleries equipped with digital displays (best without a frame), public displays to show more digitally created art, displays for the office and nice private displays for the living rooms.

Do you have any thoughts or suggestions for emerging artists just beginning in digital art?

Should emerging artists have been working with pencil and ink before starting in digital art? The technical possibilities are developing. Should they start working on some kinds of drawing pads? Sketching their ideas on paper or digitally? Other possibilities? New possibilities?

Those are interesting suggestions for emerging artists!  I believe as you have suggested that both sketching first or going right to the digital program that allows for sketching are excellent possiblities.  Thank you Immo.

Thank you so much Immo. It is a pleasure to feature your amazing creativity as well as your successful international art career!

Thanks to Solomon Walker, I will now include an important quote regarding IMMO JALASS’ artworks:

Solomon Walker commenting on Immo Jalass: “Immo Jalass is an autodidact.; a self-taught extraordinary creative artist, whose vast body of captivating artwork journeys through several fertile decades, touching on nearly all the major art movements of the 20th century. And, given all that, the most surprising thing about Immo’s artistic output is, that the work remains unique and totally Immo Jalass, even in this early dawn of the 21st century. Teamed with an enthusiastic curiosity that fuels his vision, his creative input and output is tremendous. He is a thoughtful and generous being, who is always ready to share his knowledge and to lend assistance to his fellows. I highly recommend Immo Jalass for any artistic endeavours he pursues or that are proposed for him; and of course, I highly support and recommend his artist work to buyers and collectors at all levels.”
