Catalogue Note

The work was given to Williams by Chris Wedge, the director of Robots (20th Century Fox, 2005), in appreciation for his work on the film.  "Holy Crap," Wedge's letter to Williams begins. "Working with you on Robots was fantastically rewarding. You are a genius...This painting was always my favorite bit of artwork done for Robots...It was one of the first pieces we [Wedge and Couch] did. Talking about this moment with Greg and watching the painting develop convinced me that we could imbue these metal characters with heart and soul. Your performance helped prove me right."
