Robot Invasion New Harmony Art Gallery article

Robot Mermaid was featured in this article where I was initially credited as Heather Landrey AKA Sandpaperdais (in case you came here from a search). I’ll update on here when my name/handle get updated, but in any case I was very happy to be included with all these awesome artists in what has turned out to be a truly amazing art show. The show closes this Saturday, so head on down to New Harmony Art Gallery if you get the chance!

As the article explains, my Robot Mermaid was created from fractals. I love the idea of math creating artistic forms, and math seemed the obvious approach for robot art since robots rely so heavily upon math to be designed and created and then go on to perform functions. In this case the fractals form speakers that the mermaid uses to project her enticing song and lure sailors.

The canvas from this show has found a new home, but anyone wishing to have their own Robot Mermaid can email me at sandpaperdaisy@gmail.com and I’ll get you set up with your own canvas or matte paper archival print!

I did her as part of a series of original “anime style” designs for Evillecon 2016! (Which, by the way, was incredibly fun.)

A couple of more previews of Nomadic Views art!

images from the upcoming October 4rth 2014 art opening at Corvidae Collective in Nashville

Check them out, don’t they look awesome?? This from Corvidae Collective’s facebook page. I’m also blown away that DIVE is honored to appear next to these awesome pieces. I just know that the overall show is going to be phenomenal. I can tell that the leftmost image is another one by Karen Short, but I’ll have to find out who did the middle one (which I also adore) so I can point you toward their page.

I did discover another awesome artist named Dolly Gode through this art show though. She’s freaking awesome!! I don’t know if she did the middle image or not, but I like her work a lot.

Stardust by Karen Short for Nomadic Views at Corvidae collective, Nashville

Coming from the amazing Corvidae Collective Gallery and Boutique in Nashville, TN is its latest show, Nomadic Views! Featuring “fantastical views from this world and Beyond,” it promises to be fantastic. I am very honored to have two pieces included in this show. Also, I’m sorry I couldn’t find a bigger image of “Stardust” by Karen Short for the feature image, I just used the one from the show description below. Looks freaking awesome though.

The exhibit they’re currently showing, LIT, featuring artwork inspired by banned and challenged classics, is amazing too. My favorite is the Catcher in the Rye piece but they’re all great.

As you may see in the “Upcoming Events” section below, I hope to be at The Arts Council of Doom‘s Space Madness II: There is No Cure group art show this summer.

The first Space Madness show was back in 2012 and was absolutely amazing. I was just becoming aware of the Arts Council of Doom’s activities when they were doing this show. Therefore, I missed it. So how do I know how stunning the show was?!

JEANNIE WORLEY’S AWESOME PHOTOS DOCUMENTING THE EVENT!!

You can see them two different places, on The Arts Council of Doom’s tumbr, and in this Facebook album. They give you some idea of how truly mindblowing this upcoming show promises to be. Check ’em out! And then come see the show. I’ll have more information on the 2014 show when I have a firm date, flyer and etc for it. Stay tuned!
