Puzzle Remix

I've been buying up all kinds of art for our home which explains my art-themed posts of late. This one came to me through Jen Bekman's 20x200 and as a puzzle + art lover I thought this was really spectacular:

Untitled #10 by Kent Rogowski - [via]

Love=Love is a series of surreal and spectacular landscape photographs that were created using pieces from over 60 store-bought jigsaw puzzles. Since manufacturers occasionally use the same die to cut more than one puzzle, I was able to use each piece in its proper position within the grid of the puzzle. I deconstructed the original idyllic images first by removing flowers and skies from each puzzle and then by re-combining them to form disorienting and fractured montages.

Read more about Kent on & his website - his bears project is another that's been making the blog rounds - definitely worth checking out if you haven't seen it!
