Anne Tanner
The Brilliance of Colour'
Ground Floor Gallery: 27 October - 22 November 2014


‘Nature and music are the essence of my life.’ Anne Tanner

Anne Tanner trained at the Manchester Royal College of Music as a singer, but ended up finding fame in the late seventies for her innovative kinetic sculptures. Partially inspired by one of her daughter’s school projects, she painted complex geometric designs on electrophoretically prepared aluminium constructions. Each remarkable piece had three possible patterns that only revealed themselves as the viewpoint changed.

Although these mathematical structures proved incredibly popular, Tanner felt gradually drawn back to freer ways of expression. These sculptural-paintings hang freely from poles; offered as bright sheets of music to be unraveled or decoded with the eye. The colours float over land like cumulus or cirrus clouds; warm and cool fronts collide, eddies, water spouts and dust devils move through space. Like satellite images of distant galaxies, the canvases are made up of swirling atmospheres and fantastic colours.
