A young 'bot, wearing only underwear and colorful galoshes, looks out at a rainy morning with his best buddy. The mood is deliberately ambiguous. Looking out a rainy window is often a sad thing, but his brightly colored underthings and boots signify his excitement over a fun day ahead, ironically because of the inclement weather.

The piece is made of hand cut and torn paper adhered to a cradled masonite panel with matte medium. The sides are finished with torn scraps of different shades of solid, nearly black colors. The work comes wired 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.
