Jeffrey Paclipan's puzzle relief works are experiences of undulations and movement.  When one views the works, wave-like surfaces ebb and flow with the energy of swirling pieces.  Made from puzzle pieces swirled and massed into forms, the works are more sculptural then paintings.  Breaking out the two-dimensional surface they appear to be alive, like topographic models of mountains being formed and reformed or as eternally restless bodies of water.  

Jeff's paintings are on a level a metaphor for the experience of overturning marginalization.  Using puzzles pieces, which are usually made to fit in a confined order, he flips the concept of the jigsaw puzzle from an association with logic and order to express intuitive, chaotic energy and exuberant freedom.
