I think the theme you are trying to portray could be visualized in a more abstract way. The theme itself is interesting and broad, but you could have explored it more, added symbolism so the piece would be a little more abstract and a little less literal. The mirror itself is an overused symbol itself, and the magazine cutouts are a portrayal of society, but its not your own, and its not fresh. There are too many words and less visual juxtapostions of interesting symbols, or abstractness. I think if you devoloped your theme more, you could come up with a more orginal, fresh piece that is also not too literal in its symbolism which could make the piece more interesting.

I like how your work is very "pop-art," and how the materials you've used directly relate to your theme, "Got Beauty?"

You've conveyed the irony of the harsh criticism and demand of beauty through the universal source of beauty: magazines, and i really like it.

But the work seems a bit "unpolished," as some bits of wood of the frame are showing. Also, could you try painting the words on, then shatter the mirror? - so the words wouldn't look too well-organized and lose the sense of chaotic and mad demands of beauty.
