crazy for ROBOTS: robot #43

Speakerbot
9X12 inches • acrylic, collage and resin on wood • 2008


As I was looking through recent posts by my contacts on flickr, I came across this gem of a piece by David "Netherland" van Alphen. Netherland's pieces have always caught my eye, so when I saw this Speakerbot, I knew I had to post it. I love the great mix of collage in his pieces and this one is no exception. Hmm... we actually have some old speakers in our basement. Maybe I should make our very own 3D Speakerbot. Somehow, I don't think my husband would appreciate me using his old speakers to make a robot. But then again, ya never know.

Be sure to check out the wonderful show that Netherland recently had with McBess at Rotofugi, in Chicago. Although the show is over, the artwork is still available online. Rats! Speakerbot is SOLD!
