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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.)
The title for this baby is technically Taylor’s World (I did it for a special guy of that name) but I will forever think of it as “Joseph” because that was the name I knew him by when I conceived the idea.
I made it for the Space Madness 3: Planet Doom show back in August, where it premiered.
Works from my August 2015 solo show “Atomic Shuffle” at the IUPUI Gallery.
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.
