Kayo Horaguchi

Jigsaw puzzles from Japan

Art by Kayo Horaguchi

Fantastic figures and colours

The silhouettes in Kayo Horaguchi's images must remind us of Fujishiro's paper cutouts, but her style is really quite different, and even more unrestrained (if that is possible). The pictures are all collages, often difficult to parse at first sight, but as you explore them, details start to pop out all over the place. They will make great puzzles, because you can puzzle out the picture as you put it together!
