Based on a vintage jigsaw puzzle from the 1960's, Robert Lazzarini's puzzle 3 resides somewhere between attraction and repulsion. The application of a mathematical distortion displaces notions of corporeal beauty and the female ideal. puzzle 3 conjures the 1933 distortions of Andre Kertesz, whose female nudes come out of a fascination with reflection and mirrors. Irregular-shaped jigsaw puzzle pieces are made more unusual by the artist, expanding and contracting the space of the image. The process of assembling a jigsaw puzzle is the interplay between the complete and incomplete picture - here it presents the fragmentation of the body and bodily wholeness.
