Fairy Tales & Monsters
A fairy tale is a type of short story featuring fantastic forces and beings, such as goblins, elves, giants and mermaids that carry magical enchantments. However, only a small number of the stories refer to fairies.
A monster is a fictional creature, often of a threatening force, producing fear or physical harm by its appearance or its actions. The word "monster" derives from Latin monstrum, an aberrant occurrence, usually biological, that was taken as a sign that something was wrong within the natural order.
With the current trends in television and film that explore our childhood fables, we thought who better to capture these storybook characters through Contemporary Art than Patrick Maisano!
