500 piece jigsaw puzzle
Publisher: Art & Fable Puzzle Company, LLC
Betsy Silverman, a Boston based collage artist, creates realist artworks out of recycled magazines. Working in her own collage style, which she coins fragmented realism, Silverman trains her eye upon discarded magazines. She selects, cuts, and glues the recycled paper remnants to canvas, transforming the old images and text into multidimensional portraits, still lifes, and cityscapes. She delights in the challenge of fashioning a new image while preserving bits of the former representations from their original forms. Silverman carefully constructs her artworks with consideration to hue, value, saturation, image content, and textual relationship to the subjects of her work. Each piece comprises of many layers both literal and figurative. The Art & Fable printing process produces richly colored puzzle pieces with a soft, velvety feel, and absolutely no distracting puzzle glare. Looking beyond the beautifully designed (and reasonably sized!) box, each puzzle contains 3 bonus features. First, is a sturdy, Velvet-Touch print, suitable for framing. The print provides maximum enjoyment of the artwork during puzzling, and long after. Second, we provide a very handy box-top stand. And third, we include a re-closeable bag to prevent lost pieces. Art & Fable Puzzle Company gives back with every puzzle sold. Donations based on the sale of this puzzle, will go to The Humane society, in the Boston area were the artist resides.
