Maker Faire - How To

Art History - Social Media

This series started with the idea of making a painting that could light itself. And continued the question: can something other than my hands make a painting?

Painting uses standard and UV acrylics. Every stroke is painted by a small robot that is dabbed with a bit of paint and set free to roam again and again.

Montage: CoMix - comic book images are juxtaposed with speaking bubbles and/or onomatopoeia to present a single priciple in a hero’s story. Each composition represents the psycology of a Dream, Nightmare or Reality on the painted surface.

Assemblage: UV LEDs & on/off switch are mounted into the surface of the paintings. Individual robot artist is part of the composition.


  • Biomorphic: the mark making and process are organic.
  • A.I.: I’ve dubbed the robots “Cavebots”, because they are the first robot artists. Spirit Animals that each have a unique personality and symbiotically dérive (French philosophy) a composition.
  • Abstract: paint is laid down without intention of representation.
  • Fauve: wild colors include UV fluorescence.
  • Blue Riders: The Cavebots literally ride the pigment.
  • Fluxus: “Make a robot painting.” One never knows what one will get until after it is over.
  • POP!: comic book and black light.
  • Technology: It is my thesis that all great art has utilized the latest gadget or principle.
  • Keyed On/Off switch unlocks Duality of white or black lighting --- transforms us thru veil of consciousness.
  • Juan Miro – dreams. Franscico Goya – nightmares & current events.
  • Joeseph Campbell – universal hero story.
  • Jackson Pollock’s drip & splash.
  • Bob Rauschenberg’s painted/assemblage of layered inkblots for decoding.
