This piece is made of hand cut and torn paper adhered to a cradled wood panel with matte medium. It was inspired by the many pouty-mouthed selfies floating about the internet. I find humor in a robot indulging in vanity. This piece, in particular, dons many small faces or parts of faces, making up the larger 'bot face. This is mostly a side-effect of needing various skin tones to make up the piece, but also conveniently, as subtext to the theme of the self portrait. The sides are finished with photos of white and yellow flowers and it comes ready to hang.

Diane Flick is a Bay Area artist who paints quirky portraits of robots with a playful color palette and masterful realism. Each of Diane’s robots expresses its own humanlike and idiosyncratic personality. From an early age, she had a fascination with inanimate objects and often imagined what they would be like with human characteristics. Her portfolio explores the human experience through non-human subjects.
