bluey taiwanI 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.
