I love that we can turn sheets of paper into an afternoon of soaring adventures over tropical islands, with terrible beasts and beautiful waterfalls, with our trusty wingmen by our sides. These are not just robots, machines built by man and equipped with only computational abilities. They have souls and boundless imaginations and they yearn for friendship and fun!  They exhibit only the purest expression of companionship here by enjoying a timeless game of "let's pretend'.

This wood panel was blanketed first with the torn, yellowed pages of a novel, then painted over with transparent blue/purple acrylic so that the text is readily visible on all sides, as well as in some more transparent areas of the painting.  The image itself is done in oil.  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.
