Description: My third painting of Classic Filmland Monsters. Phantom of the Opera and The Mummy.
This series is about combining images of classic cartoon, horror and unique images that appeal to me or mean something to me while having these images united together. My goal is for the view to see the two images in one relatively painless yet also seeing an entirely new image by itself. I like the idea of combining images because the idea of duality always intrigued me. Being Gemini and the battle of good vs. evil/order vs. chaos and the ever growing images we all see on a daily basis from advertisement and internet; it can be overwhelming. So my series is all about those things in one of the subjects I have chosen have been classic monsters. Mostly because the idea of who the monster really is left for us to know. I think Frankenstein has always been close to my heart so I did that one first. Here they are. The next one will be The Bride of Frankenstein and the Frankenstein Monster himself.
