Puzzle - I Thought the Streets Were Paved With Gold
Experience the tactile and aesthetic joy of the velvet-touch puzzle surface!
1000-pc Velvet-Touch Puzzle featuring the artwork of Pacita Abad. The work of Pacita Abad encapsulates the fighting spirit of US immigrant populations. Her empathic representation is striking for its thematic juxtaposition of universal, systemic struggle with triumphant hope and immutable vibrancy in the face of insurmountable odds. Born in the Philippines in 1946, Abad emigrated to the United States to study at the Corcoran School of Art in Washington, D.C where she developed her singular technique of trapunto painting -a hybridization of quilting and collage that rendered her canvases into three-dimensional landscapes that both support and interact with her uniquely abstract application of paint, bearing whole new worlds as naturally as life itself. Her subjects were primarily the unseen actors in the ecosystem of American economics that, despite barriers of language, education, and social capital, comprised the very fabric of a nation’s way of life. Following her death in 2004, Abad’s stature in the international arena of fine art continues to flourish.
