Puzzle Montage Art by Tim Klein

Puzzle Montage Art by Tim Klein

A typical jigsaw puzzle manufacturer uses the same die-cut pattern for many different puzzles. This makes the pieces interchangeable, so I sometimes find that I can combine portions from two or more puzzles to make a surreal “puzzle montage” that the manufacturer never imagined. I take great pleasure in discovering such strange images lying shattered, sometimes for decades, within the cardboard boxes of ordinary mass-produced puzzles.
