Working with LUMMA was a new experience for artist Maryanne Pollock and an opportunity to see her work translated to a large scale environmental application. Pollock's art is typically displayed in a traditional wall setting; however, these LUMMA translucent murals allow art to merge with interiors in an application that's totally "off-the-wall".
The goal was to introduce a layer of art to subdivide space while still enabling light to pass through. This was achieved with translucent material, overlapping sections of panels to achieve a large frameless mural. By sliding different portions of the image, you can rearrange the artwork or "walk through" the canvas. The translucent resin allows viewing from front and rear, a great way to accentuate its immersive quality.
The artwork is reproduced in limited edition as hi-res translucent resin panels which are suspended on a sliding track system and hover just above the floor, leaving the surface completely intact. The scale and quality of these murals is stunning.
LUMMA and Maryanne Pollock connected through CODAworx to begin this collaboration. For more information, email email@example.com

Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
