My goal is quite simple: To induce a state of awe in our patrons (like saying “WOW!!” each time they see it) – made especially for their large and high ceiling walls in homes, lobbies, and offices. My offerings for AnthonyDJones Gallery of Fine Wall Art currently come in two art forms for wall spaces:
1 – Light Sculptures; and, 2 – Light Ray Photography.
That art is a necessity, is a fact. Creativity is central to every great culture – and especially the arts – keepers of that culture’s values, the very glue of “together.”
Anthony Dallmann-Jones’ art reflects a strong relationship with ancient forms and color – made possible by new technology. The most ancient of physically regulated forms is the circle or ellipse – the orbits of the planets, the spinning of a galaxy. In a Light Sculpture we have the most primeval presence of all: Light. The first four words from God’s mouth, Grandma Jones said, were, “Let there be light!” Is there a deeper archetypal form than that?? On the other hand, there is modern NASA technology that invented dichroic film – the same film that makes possible Light Sculptures and Light Ray Photographs. NASA utilized dichroic film to coat astronauts’ helmets to protect them from – what else? – but, LIGHT – forming yet another circle. Light Art appeals to our deepest nature revealed by the involuntary, reflexive exclamation, “****!” upon seeing it.
Within this framework, Dr. DJ strives to enrich each project with breath-taking beauty that arouses a sense of primitive human longing for visible light externally, and dynamically arousing the drive for enlightenment internally, all curiously and creatively embedded in a matrix … oh, just watch these short vids.
