ROBOTS Capture Art Of Toys!
Robots capture Art Of Toys and hold hostage for entire month of May! Featured artists are Cinder, CyberCraft Robots, Garry Gay and Robert Gordon… along with all kinds of fun robot stuff!
Featured Art is the cardstock originals of Sacramento artist Chris Cinder and his original fun quirky paintings of robots at play. Better known as “Cinder” , he is a true born doodler-dreamer turned artist-gamer. His influences are: music, sci-fi movies, comic books, anime, hobby games and video games. Ultimately, his work focuses on story and the characters in that story. Many of the pieces will follow a character through its adventures and discoveries.
CyberCraft Robots work aboard an Orbiting Laboratory, under the leadership of their Primary Robot Creator, Sarah Thee Campagna. The Laboratory’s planetside base is in the Tampa Bay area of Florida. CyberCraft Robots’ award winning sculptures are currently part of two traveling museum exhibitions. They are also in private and corporate collections nationwide. Art Of Toys is happy to be able to include these wonderful whimsical creations in this show!
Garry Gay not only is a fabulous photographer but collects toy robots which reflect in his unique perspective captured in his photos. Garry has worked in Northern California as a professional photographer for over 37 years. He began his career in Marin County as a studio photographer before becoming an advertising photographer in San Francisco. He has been shooting stock for the Image Bank, now Getty Images, for over 28 years. He is currently represented world wide by nine stock photo agencies.
Robert Gordon has been a Sacramento Legend for years by recycling pieces into art years before it was trendy to do so. He has some really fun one of a kind robot paintings for this show. Over the years Gordon’s work has adorned a good portion of Midtown’s small business window fronts, and their interiors, seasonally splashing businesses for the holidays with his wet colors. He is known for recyling everyday products into his sustainable art. He has combined his eccletic style of Folk Art with the contemporary modren robot art for a unique look at the robot as art.
