Rene Magritte, The Lovers, 1928

I was deeply attracted to the gloomy yet beautiful art style Rene Magritte created in his painting "The Lovers." Upon trying to figure out what he wanted to express, I decided to create my own piece that illustrates my guess. The original oil painting shows a couple kissing with their faces wrapped in white fabric; the surrounding grayish blue and brownish red has a depressing effect on the viewer. Despite the fact that Magritte denied to most interpretations of his paintings, "The Lovers" symbolizes the phenomenon where people cannot open their hearts even to their beloved ones. People get used to protecting themselves by hiding their faces, as facial expressions can't lie about their emotions.
