I really like the effect the different layers have: the beautiful yet strangely subdued frame being the most forward, then the two flat black layers, and finally the print. But because of its contrast and central position, the print sticks out the most despite its size. The concentration of the beads too: there's less closer to the centre, and more outside. All of this makes for an interesting visual push and pull throughout the whole piece - somehow it helps the staring eye of the print be more direct towards the viewer, although on its own it doesn't feel like an intense stare. At the same time the beads help integrate the different layers together so there isn't a disconnect between them.
