"Puzzle" is exactly what the title says: I aimed to play with multiple styles and textures in a single image, specially experimenting with clashing color schemes, to create a puzzle-like picture. I believe that, in the end, it became an abstract representation of the multiple sides of a person's mind, the turmoil of clashing thoughts and beliefs that shape our very being. For example, the grey side represents the downsides of life, the red and yellows represent the intense moments, the cool tones represent calmness, while the blue lips and hair colours/accessories represent our tendency to experiment with our own body image in order to express our inner self.
