10 x 7.5 inches (closed)

This series was born during the COVID lockdown. In the spring of 2020, our family of three (including my husband and our 18-year-old son) spent 7 weeks in isolation in a rural village Upstate New York. The last time we stayed so close together was when our son was little. It turned out to be a blessing in disguise considering that Philippe was going away to university that coming fall.

In My Inner Frankenstein books Volume 1 & 2, I played with memories, the idea of a family as ever changing organism, its fragility and mortality. The faces and body parts used in paper dolls are of my husband, my son, and myself. The animals in the mix come partially from Russian folklore, where a bear – an anthropomorphic deity, also known as Misha (Mikhail), shares the name with my husband.
