"Light has the power to create, define, and solidify; or leave in shadow that which we believe to be real."The major challenge for me in art is to keep under control the tyranny of a logical mind."Dorothy Tanner ." The spirit that moves me is capricious, unruly and irreverent. Most of my work grows out of intuitive impulse the rest gets underway by just playing.Artist Dorothy Tanner uses light as her medium along with water, plastic, fabric and her imagination. The sculptures adorning the walls and fountains on display at Lumonics are psychedelic and mesmerizing. When Tanner and her talented crew open up Lumonics for an event (which is at least every weekend), there's almost always a light show filling an entire wall, courtesy of guest videographers and designers or the Lumonics experts themselves. The space contains several rooms and display areas, with secure spots to stash coats, shoes and jaw-dropping art (don't miss the pyramid installation). Shows range from intimate world-music journeys to bass-heavy dubstep lineups to DJ workshops to ecstatic chant and dance. For an illuminating experience, there's no substitute for Lumonics.While experimenting with a vast array of media in her career as an artist, Dorothy Tanner has found acrylic to be the most rewarding. It is a material that she may sculpt, paint, sandblast, or bake and shape. Some are wall sculptures, some free-standing or hang from the ceiling, while others are water sculptures. Light is an intrinsic element of the art form. LEDs have been the primary source of lighting the works in recent years.In 1965, after traveling extensively in Europe, they established a studio in Miami. Their interest in plexiglas and its unique light transmitting quality engaged both Dorothy and Mel in experimentation that led to the major element of the Lumonics art formight. Go here for info
