Dieselpunk Mammoth whale – Digital print on archival paper,594mm X 841mm, edition of 10

The retro flying mammoth whale is a huge dieselpunk machine designed and built by Yute (front sit) and Tocuyo (directing its tail for direction) to fly long extensions of the Imachinarium’s territory.

“The Retro-Orion dieselpunk Mechamorph”

Digital print on archival paper,420mm X 594mm, edition of 20

This is a painting in revolt, demanding from itself its own meaning. The bird figure stands, seemingly indifferent to the chaos around it, content to look at the stars and chirp its song through the morning.

Circles create a background in juxtaposition to the familiar bird character. The curves help highlight the sharp angles of the subject, whose grin is a discombobulation of teeth shown against the passing of time. The body seems to be reacting to the background — taking on the circles as if growing boils.

“Tocuyo Dieselpunk robot”

Digital print on archival paper,297mm X 420mm, edition of 40

Youth springs are eternal for the bird who radiates with possibility. No line is set, no color is static. This is the ongoing bloom, the unceasing becoming. The bird stands starry-eyed and eager for the present, though the sun continues to rise and set.

“Dieselpunk Flying Retro Whale”

Digital print on archival paper, 297mm X 420mm, edition of 40

Across cultures, the bird is a symbol of freedom. Its effervescent path through the sky has always signified the hopes of humanity — to be unencumbered by gravity’s pull. Alive with text and scribbled passions, this painting sings that freedom.

“The Retro-truck Dieselpunk mechamorph”

Digital print on archival paper,420mm X 594mm, edition of 20

This mixed media birdie is framed in the format of a magazine — celebrating the key image of the series in the way our culture does best. The hijacking of the cover model motif transforms the bird, taking on collage elements like plastic surgery.

“The dieselpunk Retro Plane mechamorph”

Digital print on archival paper,420mm X 594mm, edition of 20

Here we have a change of pace. The patchwork of red broods under the mint green feathers of an exhausted bird. Robin is worn out, weary, coming in from a long flight. The bird almost melts, ready to drop into the nest and sleep off the miles. While Robin might be cruising, he is ready for rest.

“Yute Dieselpunk robot”

Digital print on archival paper,297mm X 420mm, edition of 40

We see Robin beleaguered by some heavy-weighted knowledge. The body is made up of black squares that pile inside like the leaden bodies of hard lessons. Learning is not always easy and does not always bring joy. And those things that cannot be healed or cast off must be carried.

Digital print on archival paper,297mm X 420mm, edition of 40

Birds are colorful creatures. Seen through the avian visible light spectrum, even the sparrow appears resplendent. And so, Robin can teach us how to bring color to people’s lives, especially when the grey has come, as it always has and always will.

These colorful birds line up before a gold background. Reminiscent of Ferdinand Hodler’s parallelism, this painting leaves open many questions for the viewer. Are the birds walking in a procession? Lined up on a branch? These brothers hold secrets, but they hold them in common.
