ROBOTIC INTERCOURSE by connett
Acrylic on Canvas. Original is an oval 9 X 12. Painted in September 2004
A rare Figurative-abstract painting, (for me)
I was at first interested in developing the background then simply let other forms emerge in paint in the foreground. Eventually I saw that this was two automatons re-creating themselves. The penetration is a funny afterthought that developed as the painting evolved, but after I had already thought of the title. It seems to me that the smaller figure is both the female and the newly created machine. I get pleasure from it for its form, color and the absurdity in it. One of the few paintings that I do that I thought would qualify under the classification of Sci-Fi.
At the time of this writing this piece is up for auction on Ebay, (I hope I can say that!) My user ID at Ebay is vmaximus if you want to check it out.
