Arc of Light: A Portrait of Anna Campbell Bliss

by Cid Collins Walker

ARC OF LIGHT: A Portrait of Anna Campbell Bliss is a documentary film about a pioneering artist, architect and designer who has devoted her life to the creation of works of art that explore the complex intersections between art, technology, science, nature, poetry, mathematics and architecture. The film looks at the astonishing range of Bliss’s work, from small painterly and digitally based studies of color and light to architectural site commissions of immense scale. It also puts her work in art-historical context and traces her Modernist influences, including the Bauhaus school artists of the 1920s.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
ARC OF LIGHT: Portrait of Anna Campbell Bliss is a documentary film that tells the powerful and poignant story of an American artist who has devoted her life to the expression of color and light, and to the creation of works of art that explore the complex intersections between art, technology, science, nature, poetry, mathematics and architecture. The film looks at the astonishing range of Bliss's work, from small painterly and digitally based studies to architectural site commissions of immense scale.
Through on-screen interviews with Bliss, her husband, architect and academician Robert Lewis Bliss, filmmaker Judy Hallet, architectural professor Stanley Hallet, and other colleagues the documentary illuminates the artist’s life and work. The narrative covers the aesthetic influences of her early childhood in New Jersey, her ground-breaking career as a Harvard- trained architect and her emergence as a leading-edge Modernist.
ARC OF LIGHT places Anna Campbell Bliss in art-historical context, portraying her as one the last living links to the Bauhaus, whose modest beginning in the 1920s as a school of art in Germany flowered into a movement that would have a profound and wide- reaching impact on the development of Modern art, architecture and design in the West.
When Anna Campbell Bliss looks at the world through her work, she doesn’t see boundaries. She sees connectedness. But there was a time when Bliss couldn’t see anything at all. ARC OF LIGHT touches on the most challenging period in her life when she discovers that she is losing her sight but miraculously overcomes the condition. At age 87, Bliss is still taking on museum exhibitions, site commissions and creating smaller works of art in her studio in Salt Lake City, where she has lived and worked for nearly 50 years.
The film includes compelling interviews with the artist’s husband, architect and furniture designer
Robert Bliss, filmmaker Judy Hallet, professor of architecture Stanley Hallet, former Salt Lake
Art Center director Ric Collier, and author Klancy DeNevers,. The production team for
