I really like this piece. There is a lot to explore here for what on the surface may appear straightforward!

My very first observation were the two faces, the subtle differences between the two was instantly apparent. I sense different emotions in each, the woman appears somber, self hating, almost defeated. The other face, the reflection feels at ease, free from her burdens. Studying the two was an enjoyable experience in this piece. I started to explore the lines connecting them, trying to understand their meaning searching for clarity.

While the turbulent lines connecting these faces offer a definitive edge to the second, floating, face, my mind yearns for something more in the space between the closed eyes and the lines themselves. I can't help but feel unsatisfied in that ambiguous border between face and air. This can offer different things to different viewers. While i may have found a mild discomfort in this confusion, the journey in exploring this was itself it's own welcome experience. One may also find the ambiguity of this border to be accurate to the emotional state of this face, free from the bonds of hard black edges, no longer held back. All in all any shortcomings in this particular aspect of the design can hardly be considered a clear set back and can reasonable be taken as beneficial to the overall emotion of the piece.

The very subtle use of color is very well applied and feels perfect for the piece. It tricks the mind when first viewing, inviting someone to make the mistake of assuming this is a monochrome piece. Once you discover the tones of red you look for more color only to find none. It becomes clear the choice was intentional and it's importance more apparent. My heart tells me the red is this woman's blood. One is left to question, is this her blood? Has she chosen a path of suicide, her spirit breaking free from her body it's face awash in the relief to be free of whatever pain she endured?

The bulk of the smaller details are in the faces, and this is where they offer the most. But the other details; the shading on her shoulders, the small errant strands of hair, her very lightly defined collar bone; they all add to the back bone of realism that make the faces feel real. That realism in turn only serves to strengthen the emotions on the faces. In the end all these things combined to make me legitimately sad for this woman and concerned for her well being.

This is a very beautiful piece, in all aspects. Artistic placement, technical skill and aesthetic appeal. I love it.

I interpreted this as me when it comes to choosing between my real image and my image of myself in the internet(more likely).

As part of the youth of this generation, I'm attached to the technology we have.

Of course, I don't want to neglect the real me, but neither also the other...

Another one, is when wishing for something impossible, something that is wanted to be in a state receiving it, something that is despised being taken away from you, etc., then thinking why you can't and or didn't have it and also the consequences, both negative and positive.

If the possibilities were mostly negative, you'll be disappointed knowing for the fact you'll regret in the end or suffer.

If it's the other way around, you're disappointed, well, it's not happening and probably never.

If in video game terms, both are sad endings..

Then again, its just interpretations, there's no right or wrong. Unless, you're making me guess what's the real meaning of this artwork, no?

Also, I'm still young, for the fact, in early teens, so this might seem a bit off topic. But hey, its good to start having appreciation and interpretation in art while still young, eh?

But it's sad that I have no one to talk to about this in my age group, but that's a thing for a different time, anyways, it's awesome~!

This piece caught my attention. The subject appears lost in thought, as if daydreaming. I maybe out of line on this but it looks to me like she is enjoying herself intimately. She appears lost in this moment of gratification. I also get the feeling she is not alone, she is staring down at someone, and that they are enjoying each others company. The hint of red symbolizing passion and lust leads me to believe a more  intimate moment is happening than we are being allowed to see.
