This homage to the iconic Marilyn Monroe honors her memory with the only appropriate building material for such a cultural giantess: light. Her skin is made entirely of collaged images of lighting fixtures and bulbs. The piece is made of hand cut and torn paper adhered to a cradled masonite panel with matte medium. She flaunts her sexy, sophisticated, fun-loving persona with one wrench thrown in the works: she's a robot. The sides are finished with a continuation of the background imagery. The work is ready to hang.

Getting to Know Diane

As a kid, Diane Flick often empathized with inanimate objects; she worried a Kleenex box on her headboard felt unloved because she never held it as she did her stuffed animals. Consequently, she would sometimes add it to her plush family for snuggling. Looking through the lenses of playfulness, emotional warmth, and scenes from a dramatic childlike imagination, the ‘bots series seeks to explore the sentience of non-sentient beings. Diane hasn’t owned a TV in 15 years, but she still loves watching Golden Girls DVD’s with her sister.
