Inspired by a lot of youngsters that find it very hip to marry these days, I thought of the enormous puzzle that love is in life. I wanted to make a metaphor out of that concept. So I bought a puzzle and painted all the pieces.  It was now completely impossible to get the puzzle done. 

It became a 3D artwork and a metaphor at the same time.  I've made a whole series and the way the puzzle pieces are glued on the canvas is alway a surprise, as is the way the paint comes out.
