Rodin’s sculpture, Porte de l’Enfer, serves as a conceptual and structural framework for this painting. The original mythical and literary figures of Dante’s Inferno that Rodin brought to life are updated and replaced with characters from the universe of comic book super heroes. Porte de l’Enfer has haunted me since I was a student and saw it for the first time in front of the Stanford Art Museum. Gates of Heck is my homage to this great masterpiece.
