Assuming everything you observe is intentional isn't the way, man, because the simple fact of the matter is that not everything is. The entire piece could just be a series of impulse decisions with little thought as to "the meaning" of it. The choices could entirely be technically motivated, or as simple as "idk, I thought it looked cool".

Art speaks for itself because what it means to you can be completely different from what it means to the artist, and there's no obligation for either to validate how they see it.
