(Robot) Sorrow is a continuing investigation I have with the theme of robots engaged in very human, empathetic moments. The loss of an adolescent child is one of the most painful moments I believe any one could endure, and wanted to project those emotions into a form of expression which stepped outside of contemporary politics. Over the years I have occasionally given an assignment to my students,The Last Human on Earth. It was with this content in mind that I entered into resolving the image. The theme of tragedy runs deep in much of my recent work as I believes true character reveals itself under moments of extreme duress. The works of Caravaggio, de Ribera, Velazquez, Waterhouse and Michelangelo all speak to these issues of a tormented and challenged humanity, creating timeless works of art which are deeply personal.
