Imminent Deception is an image that both comes from dreams and touches on an aspect of humanity that only in the last hundred years has become reality. The merger of man and machine has become so common that we often fail to see how reliant we are on one another. Machines are built by man and yet we depend so highly on those machines that they may as well be us. This painting was done in conjunction with a sculpture that, using found objects, created an artificial arm as seen within the real arm here. Here we see the skin pulled away revealing the imminent deception that we may just become that which we now rely on.
This painting is acrylic on canvas and measures 18″ by 36″
