This particular piece was inspired by the work of Salvador Dali, one of the greatest surrealists. The starting image was a photograph of a glass head which one sees often in Hi-Fi shops, usually wearing a set of headphones.
As so often happens when one works in Photoshop without a specific brief one’s imagination can run riot, which can lead down many unforeseen paths. Once hooked on the surreal idea I just let rip with Dali’s work. I always find great delight in making glass transparent and refractive in Photoshop.
