Marian Zazeela is one of the first contemporary artists to use light as a medium of expression. In over three decades of work, she has exhibited a unique iconographic vision in a variety of media encompassing painting, calligraphic drawing, graphics, film, light projection, sculpture, and environment. Marian Zazeela has developed a unique visual language in the medium of light by combining colored light mixtures with sculptural forms to create seemingly three-dimensional colored shadows in radiant vibrational fields. As artistic director of The Theatre of Eternal Music she created the works that form the visual components of Dream House, a sound and light environment in which she collaborated with composer La Monte Young. She also studied music and singing with her mentor Pandit Pran Nath and accompanied him in concert for 26 years until his death in 1996. In February 1999, she and La Monte Young reinstalled the Dream House for an exhibition at the Musée Art Contemporain in Lyon.
