Ilsabé von Dallwitz was born in 1945. She used to
teach languages, dance and art. At the same time,
her main interest was focused on photography and
the arrangement of images.
Ilsabé von Dallwitz works present images that thrive
on completely divergent manners of seeing. The artist’s
great enthusiasm for the aethetic, charm and expressive
power of nature and architecture is the source of an
unmistakable fascination which she, in turn, strives to
share with the viewer. In digital photography she seems
to have found the ideal medium for combining the natural
with the artificial as well as elements of the traditional
photography with the possibilities available in digital
techniques and thereby captivates the viewer.
Each of her DIGITAL-ART-works works is stunning in its unique charm and character, while
the ultimate effect of all of them must be atttributed to the breath-taking interaction of light,
color and their intense luminosity. The artist predominantly occupies herself with landscape, architecture and macrophotography. Extensive sojourns and stays in Europe, the USA and
Asia are continually providing new impulses and exciting motifs.
What might appear on first sight to be an image far removed from reality, proves, on closer inspection, as being ingeniously arranged. This gives way to an incomparably vast range of computer-generated motifs. Oriented on the concept of synaesthetics, primarily developed by Kandinsky, the artist seeks new kinds of perception and creation. That implies a free play with various meanings and contents that touch upon the field of abstraction. The focus lies on the fruitful interaction between impulses from photos and computer and the visual interpretation of our modern life experience.
„My works are based on digital photos that have a very special meaning to me. Not every photo is suitable for my work. The selection of an appropriate motif is carried by memories of moods, light and colour. By this almost impressionist approach I, despite all interpretations and changing, preserve the atmosphere and the light of the original.“
Her works are based on digital photographies, which are transformed on computer and
developed as Lambdaprint. The photos are covered with acrylic and mounted in shadow
frames. Most of her works are sold as originals, from time to time small editions are published.
