The Boy Doesn't Always Get the Girl in the Real World

Regular price $300.00

My "Science Lab" series features 3-D assemblages created in reclaimed science lab drawers. I collaged vintage maps and children's science books, then painted and arranged them into shapes inspired by video games to create my backgrounds. I arranged a collection of toys and mechanical parts into mechanical flower shapes, and scroll-cut my robot characters from wood to take center stage.  Each piece in the series is one of a kind, signed by me front and back, and wired to hang on a wall or stand on a surface. Pieces include my signed Certificate of Authenticity.

I have taken to writing down snippets of text or lyrics as I see them or hear them, if I think they might serve me later as painting titles.  I heard a song with lyrics like this at a pool party in the summer and thought it was perfect for this piece with Cotton Candy Girl.  It's not about feeling sorry for the boy--it's about her flying free and not wanting to be "gotten" at all. 

Size is approximately 18 x 13.75 x 4 inches.
