Bryce Wilner’s 500 piece Gradient Puzzle challenges your ability to sense differences in color and your jigsaw prowess.

Not only does the jigsaw depict no representative image, but there are no defined lines in the artwork at all. The hue gradually sweeps from a vibrant blue to a verdant green (or a rich black to a bright white) as it subtly shifts across the length of the puzzle. The design is a celebration of color, a meditation on nuance, and a whole lot of fun to put together.

Even the box is a work of minimalist art, having a gradient printed on each outside wall of the two-part box with text only on the bottom face.

A jigsaw puzzle is a challenge that gradually reveals itself as you solve it. The Gradient Puzzle is an even more extreme undertaking since the gradually revealed image is actually a subtle change from one solid color to another. Solving this puzzle is maddeningly fun.

500 pieces and uncountable colors

Each Gradient Puzzle is an 18” by 24” swatch of two-tone fun. While a 500 piece puzzle might not be described as a huge puzzle, finding the right spot for each particular piece of blue-green or white-black is hugely challenging.
