The painting depicted in this puzzle is part of the current series entitled, Contemplation. This series focuses on people in museums and galleries in moments of serious contemplation, with an appreciation for the quiet joy of looking and seeing. The series furthers Fig’s exploration of the creative process and of artist’s in their studios, often depicted contemplating works in progress. This series takes those art works out of the studio and into the public realm. The evolution of an artwork from the studio to a public space then makes it part of the record and opens it to broader critique, criticism and contemplation. For those involved in the art world, there is no greater joy than the appreciation of experiencing art in person. Unfortunately, during this time of COVID, it really has become evident how much that is missed.
