Unpuzzling the Tangram

Radesky tangramSukeforth tangramThe exhibit featured individual artistic expressions based on the universal dimensions of a tangram.

Each artist designed and created an entity that embraced the most liberal concepts of collage, using the seven geometric shapes found in a traditional tangram.

Sizes of the individual creations varied.

Each artist was free to conceive of her own colors, things, and textures that were attached to the art work and later defined the geometric shapes.
