Paula Metallo | Take and Give | frankensteins

The research led me to Mary Shelley, daughter of the pioneering feminist, Mary Wollstonecraft. Her novel Frankenstein (1818), written in the middle of the industrial revolution, is a key moment in my quandary over the risks of overreaching and how mans efforts to improve human existence can also result in tragedy. It interests me how Mary Shelley examines the imagination's monstrous possibilities. After all, Frankenstein is a collage! And a visual metaphor for forced assimilation.

These are stitched collages.
