Plantimal 2 (Robot 30): Title: “Plantimal 2, The Living Machines Series”.

Art Print of an original graphite drawing by Andrew Lincoln Nelson.

Standard print sizes: 8" by 10", 12" by 16", 18" by 24". Custom sizes for most frames available upon request.


This is a print one of the most visually direct renderings in the “Living Machine” series. As with other works in this series, the original drawing explores themes of mimetic evolution, Lamarckian evolution and self-construction. The central focus of the work, a large organic spheroid creature, is a mainly biological entity, with no explicit machine elements. This entity has both plant-like and animal-like components, and might fancifully be called a Plantimal. Exploring the theme of mimetic evolution, this “plantimal” might be in the process of taking on the form of a smaller more machine-like creature which it is carrying. The background is taken largely from a view of low mountains north of Interstate 8 near the Arizona-California border.

This print is available in a variety of sizes. Any size listed with a ** is available for purchase framed in a separate listing. All prints are high resolution and professionally printed on HP glossy archival paper with HP archival inks. Paperweight ranges from 70 - 80 lb cover depending on the size of the print.
