Art: Robot Epidemic by Artist Nata ArtistaDonna
The Wizard of Oz is a children's novel. Dorothy is a young girl who lives on a Kansas farm with her aunt and uncle and dog Toto. One day the farmhouse, with Dorothy inside, is caught up in a cyclone and deposited in a field in the country of the Munchkins. The Good Witch of the North comes with the Munchkins to greet Dorothy and gives Dorothy the Silver Shoes that the Wicked Witch of the East had been wearing when she was killed. Dorothy has to go to the "Emerald City" and ask the Wizard of Oz to help her.On her way down the road paved with yellow brick, Dorothy sees the scarecrow, the Tin woodman, and the the cowardly lion. This is when I put a twist into the story and came up with my painting of the robot epidemic. As they walked the path of the yellow brick road, Dorothy, Toto, scarecrow, Tin woodman, and the the cowardly lion turned into robots. I started off with multiple wet washes and gradually built up the bodies and scenery. I made them all look robotic, and most of all the tin woodman is pictured without a heart. The painting directs our attention to the heartless tin woodman. I want to show a life without a heart is to live without emotion. As a finishing touch I dabbed a moist sponge with a dry wash to give a sense of light. A black pen & ink was used to outline .
