The Classics

In this, my most recent series of sculpture, classic literature is the inspiration and the common theme.  Thus far, all the pieces are of the Horror or Science Fiction genres.  This was not necessarily my intent but I have come to realize just how prophetic many of these literary works were.  I do, however, plan to branch out into other genres.  These sculptures represent modern, and sometimes disturbing, interpretations of their namesakes.
