Looking back at the beauty of robots

Today’s piece is something of a first (well, for us at least) and I’m proud to present our first double sided picture. It’s on a 60 x 40cm wood panel and features laser engraving, stencils, spraypaint, paint pens, acrylic paint and laser cutouts. If that’s not enough I even managed to come up with my own patented industrial-looking hanging contraption from the hardware shop so it can be easily flipped to give your walls a new lease of life. Drop us a line if you’re interested.

One side features an austere looking lady robot with the words ‘Morrigun combat unit v1.7’ engraved on her metallic skin and the crow insignia of the Death’s Head battalion on her forehead. She doesn’t look entirely pleased to see you. All this under the legend ‘We can see beauty in robots but it remains to be seen whether they will be able to see beauty in us’. I’ve got to admit it doesn’t look good for humanity. I, for one, welcome our new robotic overlords…

The other side was inspired by the Massive Attack song ‘Safe from harm’ and features a man with lilac hair and eyebrows and his not-so-subtle stare which he’s been flashing at a certain somebody for a good while now across the crowded dancefloor. He’s giving it his best to re-enact the bit of the song summarised in the line ‘I was lookin’ back to see if you were lookin’ back at me to see me lookin’ back at you’ which is handily engraved into the side of the piece just to clarify issues.

I really enjoyed making this so there’ll hopefully be more to come in the way of 2 sided pictures…

Darren the moth

Darren was a just a moth like any other until the day he flew into an MOD research wing and quaffed some of the brightly coloured sugary liquid he found sitting on a lab desk. This seemed to displease a nearby lab assistant and after being chased around the lab for almost an hour he somehow managed to escape despite feeling very tired and somewhat ill. He wisely decided to retire to his little moth bed for the night.

In the morning he looked in the mirror and emitted a loud squeak (for that is what Death’s Head moth’s do) in surprise at what he saw. He was twice the size – with bulging wing muscles, had grown wing mounted cannons and a new sensor array and now looked resplendent in his strange new black and yellow livery. A strange feeling washed over him that perhaps this was his destiny. He decided there and then to raise an insect army and seize control of the state. We have a new enemy amongst us…

Mixed media piece on 24×30″ canvas. My favourite touch which doesn’t really come across too well on the photo is the crystal resin I’ve poured over the top which makes it look like there’s water dripping down the piece. If you’re interested in it then drop us a line…
