Those were the days. The ones that were so entrenched in rich, slow, crooning songs, served alongside dark, textured side dishes of love, simple pleasures and hard luck.

To know how much a robot can suffer and love! Sing it Frankie. Sing it to a newly diverse audience, at once timeless and also firing like a shot into an uncertain future full of wishful thinking and good luck.  

This piece is made of hand-cut and torn paper adhered to a cradled plywood panel with matte medium then glazed with oil paint.  The sides are finished with the torn, yellowed pages of a novel. The work comes wired and 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.
