ROBOT/Michael

Well here we are, you are leaving then-yes, I
can see that you are. I found a green space-very
small, but, enough. I will put you there, I can do that.
So human Michael, is that me, really? I forget, they
never do. Every triumph, tragedy, all nuance of
human, of you, I worked, I solved. I am the lion
in the zoo-I am lost. The sweet green pasture,
soon I will take you there.
Green, I know how it looks, can find all parts, but
I don't feel it. Father, red, it is heart, alone,
I can feel red. I love you, what color is that, red? So
many times you quizzed me. I know red.
Please!

the robot seems like it is losing it's one link to humanity with the death of it's human, very touching and hauntingly beautiful

Strong, beautiful and interesting is this from a movie or book?

This is so sad...it humanizes the robot in a way that's heartbreaking. I wonder how it will go on? Your work always seems to contain such a strong emotional depth, and this is no exception.

I really like the way you use light and shadow and your painterly style to create the eerie feeling.

The mood in the illo really goes w/ the words. Very Sad, I like all the colors you used, looks really neat up close.

I love the way the robot doesn't quite fit in the human chair. The colors are great...the deep purple bed...the light going out.

Hello Hardwax,

When I look at this picture, with out the narrative. . and even with out the subject matter ("robot").....

I am struck by the two figures. .
the one in the bed I am believing he is dying . .

the one in the chair. . is the one that loves the one in the bed. .

(my interpretation)

the one that is sitting up and will resume her life seems more dead than the one in the bed.

What I am trying to say is that the survivor (figure in the chair) ie. the "strong one," sitting up is really the one that is dying. . because the loss of the loved one is so great.

Strong image. One can explain it in several different ways, I can see of your text and the comments here. For me it's if death come, then only the robot's back - I can't explain it in another way. Besides, your technique is very talented and creative.

When a person die, a world disappears - that's not my words, but they are true.

Thank you for seeing this great image.
