Oh sorry, I misunderstood. The hole was actually unintentional - I was removing a section of the sky on photoshop using the magic wand tool, and ended up losing some of the figure. I could have easily undone it, but decided it was more interesting with the hole (I suppose it could represent emptiness or lack of feeling). Most of my work is just a series of such unplanned accidents. As with life itself, what you end up with is never even close to what you started out to achieve.
