This painting was inspired by an intriguing conversation I was having with a friend. We were discussing the chances of there being a second form of life somewhere out there, we both agreed of course there is! But, she said something that caused me to ponder about the subject all night.- "What if humans so sickly advance and evolve that - we end up becoming these emotionless technology tombs made of skin . What if we become the 'aliens'? What if we become the 'Invaders'? "
