XOXO: every single dot with O represents a hug and the X a kiss.
This particular work has one big hug in white. Do you see the huge circle on this work? It represents a big hug! There are many more circles in this work. They all represent hugs and kisses.

This particular work is painted on a high-quality woodpanel canvas which is 3.5cm deep and collaged with book pages on all 4 sides.
It is part of her new series hugs and kisses: XOXO

The book pages are on some parts still visible. I love how it turned out.
