Logos books hosts digital artist's work – Davis Enterprise

November’s exhibit at Logo Books will bring a surprising layering of digital media and old maps by Lauren Dineen Sullivan in “Map Musings.”
Sullivan has many art pieces reproduced in prominent places around Davis as well as work being shown in Yolo County exhibitions. Logos is pleased to have her work from Oct. 30 to Dec. 3, demonstrating a young digital artist who incorporates many interesting locations that may be familiar to Yolo County inhabitants.
“I have always delighted in the arts, and have been drawing ever since I could hold a pencil,” Sullivan wrote. “My love for art endured through the years, even as my studies led me to a formal education in speech-language pathology, psychology, and child development. I am grateful to have spent the majority of my years in Davis, which has proven to be a very nurturing environment for the aspiring artist.
“In early childhood, I enjoyed a somewhat nomadic lifestyle as a military brat, which sparked a lifelong love of travel. In my senior year of college, it occurred to me to merge my two loves, and so, ‘map art’ was born. Antique maps are of particular fascination to me; I enjoy discovering all their unique minutiae, such as stamps, small, handwritten details, and old notes.
“I especially like portraiture, and I’m generally seeking ways to entwine my subject with their environment. Topographical lines become hair, wrinkles, and bodily contours, rivers and streams become veins. Sometimes the subject interacts with the landmarks, swimming in the sea, painting rivers, resting a hand on a lakeshore.
“I will also sometimes draw on old sheet music, and have experimented with unusual mediums, such as red wine, though the bulk of my work is currently drawn digitally. I look forward to continuing my journey with art: the maps will show me the way.” You can reach her at [email protected]
Join Logos Books in welcoming her in an artist reception from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 12. Sullivan will have available copies of her work for purchase at this event.
