Anna Campbell Bliss


Spectrum Squared

40.75 x 40 in. (103.505 x 101.6 cm)
Museum Purchase with the Charter Member Endowment Fund

Bliss’ background in mathematics inspired her to use her artwork to connect color, movement, science, and nature. An avid computer programmer, Bliss became a pioneer in the realm of computer-generated artwork. She often paired her work on computers with screenprinting, both of which she believed to be invaluable in her explorations of color because the technologies allowed her to mix colors with exactness. Until her death in 2015, Bliss took on several commissions for local Utah institutions, such as the Utah State Capitol Building, the University of Utah Cowles Mathematics Building, and the Salt Lake City International Airport. Bliss and her husband are credited with helping grow the Utah art scene and fostering what many described as a “family” of local artists, architects, and designers.
