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.

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.
