A Puzzle Picture is a piece of art formed through using wood mass on a small or large scale, cut into strips of variable lengths and widths all of a same dimension. The number of strips varies from picture to picture.
The wood is sanded and prepared to such a time that paint can be applied, or the wood is painted and then overpainted and re-sanded to form a colour mix typical of Mell'Arte.
The wood will be placed in rows and only the top surfaces will have a layer
of paint applied, waiting in-between coats for the paint to dry.Excess paint overlapping the sides is sanded down.
Puzzle Pictures dictate that each slat can be re-arranged to form another picture, in some cases of course this is not possible, the general idea is to work with simple images and shading.
Different colours and images have different meanings. And as we are people and ever changing , so do our realities of what a puzzle picture says to us.
