As children, many of us would bring objects to life using our imagination. We would repurpose objects whose purpose was not to entertain children and we would use them for our amusement. My series, titled “Impossible Machines,” will attempt to capture that child-like imagination with a dystopian twist. “Impossible Machines” is a series of 4 oil paintings featuring hostile robots made up of various metal objects. Viewers will experience the most prominent environmental colors reflecting off the machine’s surfaces while also identifying familiar objects within these robots.
This series explores the advances of technology and receding natural environments through a metaphoric lens. Grayscale Frankenstein-esque machines take over the canvas of a planet’s natural environment. Similar to how advancements in technology have led to an increasingly grayer world at the expense of our natural environment.
