The dark background shifting into white going outwards; seems like light leaving the situation. Like darkness is arriving and removing the light; good overtaking evil. The cuts might make it seem like any other emo piece of artwork.
If it weren't for the bruises and bloody nose.
It seems like the person here has been beaten by not only themselves, but by others. The neutral expression reveals just that; a lack of emotion. The purple eyes caught me a bit off guard, I'd have to say.
But they aren't without translation.
In most (if not all) mood rings, purple means calm. This person has accepted the darkness of everything, accepts the punishment and has no drive to leave it.
A person lost in the welcoming dark.
