DescriptionThe original is available. You can find my available originals, learn about my artistic process, and more, at my website: rudypavlina.comThank you for looking. Please tell your friends about me!About this piece: This autoanimated ancient relic has just finished creating himself. He is composed of cloth, a mask, a glove, stuffing, glue, thread, and some tools from a tool shed. His legs may seem awkward, but their length gives him surprising speed. The hoe and broom provide extraordinary stability. However, the autoanimation police are on his tail. To complicate things further, he is experiencing spontaneous internal combustion. Better go check your tool shed for missing tools.

I have no formal training as an artist. I admire the works of Dali, Max Ernst, Dorothea Tanning, Giorgio De Chirico, and Rene Magritte, among others. Usually, I paint it first; then think about what it all means to me. I think my current fascination with creation and re-birth is somehow connected to an increasing awareness of my own mortality. African masks interest me, and their beautiful/grotesque features often appear in my paintings. My work is usually humorous, sometimes sad, and sometimes both. Thank you for your interest.
