Drop Shadow

Just finished this new piece. And I'm pretty pleased with it. It has a surreal quality about it that blends with the more mundane aspects of the room that it takes place in. It is about shadows, this idea I had that shadows existed. Existed apart from the objects that create them. As if we ourselves might be a shadow of something purer or diabolical. My first fascination with shadows was Plato's allegory of the cave, when the things of this world are seen to be the mere reflections/shadows of ideals. And those ideals find their source in an even greater absolute. Anyway, read Plato, not me.
