For Seattle artist Gregory L. Blackstock, who is autistic,
the world is made up of countless things needing to
be identified, ordered, and arranged—be they bugs,
birds, vehicles, or landmark buildings. Creating art
has become his outlet for defining an unpredictable
world. Once he chooses a subject, he seeks to record
all the variations within that group, to make the artwork
"complete." Blackstock began drawing regularly in
his early forties. Since his first solo art show in 2004
at age fifty-eight, his list-like drawings have found a
place in museums and homes around the world.
Thoughtfully conceived and engagingly intricate, our 500-piece interlocking jigsaw puzzles combine superb color reproduction, stunning and unusual images, and sturdy construction to delight generations of novice and veteran puzzleworkers.
