« Great things are not done by impulse, but always by a series of small things that are brought together. » Vincent Van Gogh
The Tangram prints draw inspiration from a chinese puzzle known as „the seven boards of skill“, an ancient dissection puzzle consisting of seven flat shapes, called tans. The tans, put together, are meant to form a specific shape using all seven pieces. Legend has it that a monk instructed his student to paint the beauty of the world on a single ceramic tile. The tile, of course, broke, thus inspiring the student to find true beauty and diversity within the seven parts of the broken tile. These prints are both an illustration of those tangram shapes and, being scaled to the size of the paper sheet, an arrangement of abstract solids that transforms the figurative idea.
