Sinking of the Robots

Sinking of the Robots
1950, oil/canvas, 20" x 26"


The robots reluctantly go over the edge as the Age of the Robots ends. The parent robots put on a good face for their son, though they feel and see danger. Meanwhile, their friend robot - who has unfortunately stayed the night - rebels at imminent demise, and his eyebulbs and ears spring from his head in rage. Belowdeck magnets try to hold things together, in vain. In the dreamy distance a mirage of ancient cultures appears.
