The Mechanical Horror

Ink, pencil, watercolor, marker and colored pencil

This one is hard to explain. I am not sure that I should try. Maybe it is the influence of the video game world with its sometimes bizarre visions. Or, perhaps a feeling of someone thinking that I am something that can be run by motors and controls. I am sure that it makes noise when it moves and that it can’t be stopped.

As are a good number of my works, this one is small, 4 x 6 originally. And, the image came to me as I was attempting to solve a serious problem. I made several other versions.

About mmgilbert

I have been drawing and painting all my life. Now part of the “New Symbolist” movement which encompasses both Goth, fantasy and tattoo art as well as the century-old work of Odilon Redon, I focus on archetypal and mythic imagery to evoke emotional themes and to reference darker fantasies. I have an abiding interest in figurative drawing, working on paper and exploring new ways to handle traditional materials. I studied with Edward Millman, a WPA muralist; at Purchase College; and at the Art Students League in New York.
