“Turn soft and lovely anytime you have the chance.”
“Boredom makes you do crazy things.”
“You are a victim of the rules you live by.”
“SOME DAYS YOU WAKE AND
IMMEDIATELY START TO WORRY.
NOTHING IN PARTICULAR IS WRONG,
IT¹S JUST THE SUSPICION THAT
FORCES ARE ALIGNING QUIETLY
AND THERE WILL BE TROUBLE.”
“I try to excite myself so I stay crazy.”
“Ideals are replaced by conventional goals at a certain age.”
“YOU SHOULD LIMIT THE NUMBER OF TIMES
YOU ACT AGAINST YOUR NATURE,
LIKE SLEEPING WITH PEOPLE YOU HATE.
IT¹S INTERESTING TO TEST YOUR CAPABILITIES FOR A WHILE
BUT TOO MUCH WILL CAUSE DAMAGE.”
“MORE THAN ONCE I’VE AWAKENED WITH
TEARS RUNNING DOWN MY CHEEKS.
I HAVE HAD TO THINK WHETHER
I WAS CRYING OR WHETHER IT
IS INVOLUNTARY, LIKE DROOLING.”
“Sound doesn’t always have to be heard. Sound can also be created by how a pattern is set up on a surface- how it moves across the surface, how light reflects the surface [and] can generate a feeling. Sound can also be through feeling, through color, through texture.” – Nick Cave

Light sculptor Dorothy Tanner is one of 21 Colorado-based artists participating in MOA’s new exhibition, Reinventing The Image. She has created a self-contained light and sound installation in the Black Box Gallery featuring many of her new works entitled, Reinventing the Image With Light.
Dorothy Tanner was born in New York which is where she began her art career. Her main project for the past several decades has been Lumonics, a light and sound multi-sensory expression involving light sculptures, projection, electronics, and music. Lumonics has been presented in California, Maine, Florida, and Denver. She has most recently created the Lumonics Mind Spa downstairs at the newly opened The Scarlet, a former casino at 131 Main Street in Central City. The Scarlet combines the fine arts, healing arts, and live music. A work in progress, Ms. Tanner will be installing her art and that of her late husband, Mel Tanner (1925-1993) on all four stories of the building.
