Jigsaw puzzles are the new coloringsdash;they slow us down, draw us in, hold our attention and still the noise around us. Now, to meet the need, are two new puzzles from Flowgeg;.
In Free to Just Be, Dutch-Egyptian artist Roeqiya Fris evokes the Cairo streets of her childhood, where the women would sing while hanging up the laundry in the morning. A work that verges on the abstract, with its patterned fabrics and pink-washed stucco walls, the puzzle invites us piece by piece to feel the breeze and sun of those mornings, to delight in the casual splashes of colour, and to sense a city teeming with life and mystery.
