Electric Sheep

approx. 15" x 18", watercolour and wires, 1989, private collection

The title is a shortening of the Philip K. Dick novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? (which I've read only once but was the basis for Blade Runner, one of my favourite movies). The inclusion of the wires was inspired by the amazing mixed media work of Bill Sienkiewicz, who is still a great inspiration to me (I included wires in something like six or seven paintings from '89-'93 and haven't really mixed media/materials since).

I apologize for the blurry quality of this photo, but my documentation skills weren't very consistent at the time...but it's good enough for posterity, though...which is why I'm posting these oldies anyway.
