Autism puzzle

About the theme of "autism"

After setting aside my series for nearly three years due to a sense
of incompleteness, a chance encounter at a flea market reignited my artistic inspiration.

It was there that I stumbled upon bags of puzzles, and at that moment, I knew
I had found the missing element I had been searching for.

Incorporating puzzle pieces into my compositions breathed new life into the series, adding an unexpected layer of depth and complexity that resonated deeply with me.  

As I completed the series, I realized the profound symbolism of the puzzle piece, particularly about the autism spectrum.

It became apparent that the puzzle piece represents more than just a physical component of a larger whole—it embodies the multifaceted nature of autism and the quest for acceptance and understanding within our society.

This revelation imbued my artwork with a newfound sense of purpose as
I aligned with the values of diversity, tolerance, and community support
that the puzzle symbolizes.  

In embracing the symbolism of the puzzle piece, I found myself drawn
to use art as advocacy and support for the autism community.

Through my intuitive and humble approach to incorporating puzzle pieces
I strive to foster greater inclusivity and empathy in my artwork.

By celebrating diversity and embracing the complexities of the human experience, I hope to contribute to a more compassionate and understanding society for individuals with autism and their families.
