Daddy Loves Dali

A double meaning, since I’m both a fan of Salvador Dali and also the father of a boy named Dali.

Daddy-Loves-Dali-01I don’t usually do self-portraits or makes cameos in my work but given the personal meaning behind this one I had to make an exception.

Under the watchful gaze of Creepy Uncle Salvador, I appear as an astronaut helping his son explore a strange new world of wonderment. And that’s a good a definition of the responsibility of fatherhood as any, don’t you think?

The little blue alien represents my son (I cite artistic license for the fact that there are three of them!) and has appeared in other fatherhood-themed collages such as ‘Space Tourists’.
