Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein
“Inspired by the cold bleakness of the far north where they meet one last time, I seek to portray the Monster with empathy denied him in life. Etched on his face is the pain of existence as foisted upon him by Frankenstein. I modeled his figure after the ideal male of antiquity, which I believe Frankenstein would have used as template, and arranged their poses for final rest: Frankenstein as pitiful as his true character; his Monster in dignified repose.”
