The work of Salvador Dali has always been a huge influence on my surrealistic style. His piece "Allegory of the Soul" has always spoken to me from another level of consciousness. I see the caterpillar of the Soul, which burrows into the warm, mortal cocoon of physical existence, where it incubates in the brainpan. That is, until the now-mature, metamorphosed spirit gains inertia and rips through the doughy illusions of the everyday mundane. The Shadow, the projection of this experience, captured on canvas for the observation and education of all, is what we label as "Art". I call this, my re-creation of Dali's sketch, "Parable of the Artist".
