Original artwork description:

"Muriel Was Good At Pretending" - oil on unstretched canvas, 18 x 18 inches. This item is sold unmounted and unframed.

“Pretending bad things aren’t happening is not a great survival strategy.”
― MURDERBOT, Martha Wells, Rogue Protocol

In the search to capture emotion in art, I found myself deep into a series of bots...bots in ballgowns, bots in petticoats, bots in kimonos, bots with orb heads. The question is: can an emotionless thing evoke emotion? In fiction (i.e. MURDERBOT) the answer is yes. And in art? Well, the group of emoting bots in my studio also say yes. Sometimes being an artist is the greatest possible adventure. :)

This piece is sold unframed. It will be carefully packaged in mostly repurposed shipping materials. Customs fees and duties are the responsibility of the recipient.
