This piece is made of hand cut and torn paper adhered to a cradled masonite panel with matte medium. With another avenue into the childlike imagination, these 'bots aren't backing down. Remember how convinced we were when we drew those plastic pistols that our evil and menacing adversaries would indeed be shot full of holes and our glory embedded forever in the fabric of history? Then the bad guy would pop up with vigor and run to the kitchen with us for fresh baked cookies. Scoff if you will at the glorification of violence. You would be just in doing so. But no kid I knew ever actually grew up and shot anyone. There must be strong moral compasses in the hearts of even the most vicious of imaginary killers, sauntering about in a jingling pair of size 4 boots n' spurs. These 'bots are just reenacting those roles. The sides are finished with randomly cut and collaged graphics of many different textures, but largely with imagery of puppy and kitten fur.

This piece is done on cradled masonite board with the sides finished. 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.
