One’s first bath is an adorable and memorable mark in a new life. I have just become a mother, and am so thoroughly enjoying moments like this with my new little boy. For a robot, bathing comes with the added complication of avoiding rust and material degradation. However, that is not a problem for this family, equipped with the necessary preventative fluids. Baby shows surprise, but will soon sink into the luxury of being adored in so many ways...one of which is the process of being lovingly cleaned. This piece is made of hand cut and torn paper adhered to a cradled wood panel with matte medium. The sides are finished with imagery of various colorful quilts. The work comes wired and ready to hang.

Artist Diane Flick depicts surrealist scenes that explore human experiences through inanimate objects. She shows sentience to non-sentient beings through the lenses of playfulness, emotional warmth, and dramatic childlike imagination. "Each piece makes me feel really happy," shares Diane. "First in concept, then in execution, then in the flow of sending it out for someone else to enjoy." She relishes animating her subjects in her works, bringing newness and segues into disparate themes from the same intention and philosophy. She pursued her MA at California State University to sharpen her craft. She then worked as a graphic designer, moved to San Francisco, and answered an ad to teach art. Today, she lets her imagination run free at her home studio, built by her husband, with her help. The wonderful sunshine and fresh air offer the perfect environment for her to paint with ease. Diane continues to teach at an after-school art program, sharing her knowledge while keeping her inspired. Relaxing and unwinding mean she gets to spend her spare time with her husband and two sons. Diane enjoys traveling the world with her family and looks forward to making it a habit.
