The March/April exhibit in The Scrap Exchange was titled “The Artful Robot“, and contained fantastic examples of robot art from artists throughout the Triangle NC region. I created and submitted two pieces for this show. Both pieces feature a metal mosaic or assemblage technique. I introduce to you, Mr and Mrs. Roboto.
I started with 11×14 canvases. Then I decoupaged sewing pattern tissue paper mixed with paint to the base of each canvas. Mr. Roboto is created with an old metal picture frame, metal laminate sample chips, machine parts, buttons and old jewelry. Mrs. Roboto is created primarily with vintage metal buttons and old or broken jewelry pieces.
