I often wonder as I browse through your art pieces. Do you have a vision of what you want to create or do you gather materials to create around? I usually start with the materials, but some of your pieces like this one seem to have a very definite theme or maybe just the viewer reflecting his or her ideas on the piece. I see this as a quest for a religious goal.
To begin with I'm a collector of images and stickers. Since I always work on several pieces at a time to get my momentum and to not dwell or think too much about what I am about to create, my pieces evolve out of intuition. But hey, we all have stuff in our sub-conscience that just loves to percolate to the surface.
