Frankenstein is one of my favorite stories ever. The Monster is such a complex and philosophical creature. This was my first sgraffito piece in years. It kicked off the exploration of this process that lead to all the others in this series. Here The Monster reflects on a moment when his eagerness to connect with another led him to accidentally murder the only person who ever treated him will kindness. In the 1931 film version, a young girl named Maria offers The Monster a daisy. She tosses them the heads of the flowers into the water to show him how they float. Excited, The Monster throws Maria into the pond, and she drowns. He wanted to play, he was excited, he did not know his actions would kill her. Here, he faces his regrets.
I cover the pastel in black, submerging that original effort in darkness. Once the image is lost, slowly the rediscovery process begins. Scratching away the shadows I begin to reveal complexity, create texture and find a richness that was not possible without darkness. Each of these pieces is a leap of faith, a surrender. This process connects me to eternal emergence. Knowing what could have destroyed us actually gives us access to wholeness. Confrontation with the dark makes the light more powerful. It welcomes us into dynamic balance.
