My goal is quite simple: To induce a state of awe in our patrons each time they see a piece – made especially for their large and high ceiling walls in homes, lobbies, and offices. My offerings for the A2Z Gallery of Fine Wall Art currently come in four art forms for wall spaces:
Art being a necessity is a fact. Creativity is central to every great culture. The arts are the obvious keepers of that culture’s values, the very glue of “together.” The arts begin to crumble shortly before the culture does, dissolving into the listless dust of history.
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 (also called Light Paintings). NASA utilized dichroic film to coat astronauts’ helmets to protect them from – what else? – sun LIGHT – forming yet another circle. Light Art appeals to our deepest nature revealed by an involuntary and reflexive exclamation, “WOW!” upon seeing it.
Within this framework, Dr. DJ strives to enrich each wall art 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.

He was co-owner of State Street Gallery in Madison, Wisconsin, and co-founder, as well as a member, of the infamous Awarehouse Art Colony.

I create by digesting the significant events encountered in my life and exploring the deepest recesses of my rarely reachable subconscious. The goal of my artistic interpretations is for the viewer to share in the magnitude of these experiences for themselves the same way I have.
