Where do they come from? Why are they here? What are they looking for?

My name is Matt Dixon. I've been painting the 'Transmissions' series of robot pictures since 2006 and I still don't know the answers. In fact, I'm not sure there are any answers, and that suits me just fine.

When I sit down to paint a new picture, I'm exploring a new corner of the world my robots live in. With each image I learn a little more about that world but each piece brings more questions, and that's what keeps me coming back to the work. Questions keep us curious. Make us want to learn and explore. We don't need answers, we need more questions.

A Kickstarter campaign for Transmissions 4, my new book of robot art, is underway.

This one is my favourite. So soft. A blank face that shows much emotion.

Fascinating! It's not a road, it's a massive shadow, but of what? Hmmm ... I'm picturing the other painting of the robot and the flower on top of some kind of monolith and this guy's looking up and wondering how they'll get together.
