If we could shed the layers of influence and experience we have gathered throughout our lives, we would metaphorically look something like this. This 'bot celebrates the raw, untainted innocence with which we are born, and can choose to hold onto through life. This work was blanketed first with the torn, yellowed pages of a novel, then painted over with very transparent yellow/orange acrylic. The image itself is done in oil.

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.
