"Almost all painters observe, inspect and analyze paintings all our life.
A puzzle gives everybody this prolonged view of an image and the interaction to build it piece by piece. I want it to make the piece of the puzzle in itself, the subject of the puzzle. The border lines, the scale the shadows and even the mood of the cognitive structures involved in the thinking process." Fabian Marcaccio
Artist Certificate: Each puzzle comes with an artist certificate.
Fabian Marcaccio’s work investigates whether the traditional medium of painting can survive in the digital age. He has used printmaking and transfer techniques to make paintings and became well known in the 1990s for his sculptural manipulations of the two-dimensional surface of canvas. More recently, he has infused his painting process with digital and industrial techniques. The results are environmental works, animations, and “Paintants” that combine digitally manipulated imagery, sculptural forms, and three-dimensionally painted surfaces.
