  • Polarization, 2015 Animal and human, light and dark, earthly and spiritual, John Simpkins’s artwork is a study in contrasts and comparisons, and the edges between them. Simpkins is the sole human resident of an Oregon ghost town at the edge of Steens Mountain and the Alvord Desert. This 1000-piece jigsaw puzzle features a magical polar bear, replete with symbols and radiating a calming presence.

    By 2021, artist John Simpkins (American, b. 1951) had spent the better part of a decade as the sole human inhabitant of a ghost town in Oregon’s Alvord Desert. His radiant images of animals painted during that time are inspired by the magic he finds there—of light, shadow, and the drama of the changing weather as it blows across the nearby mountain. Living in such an open environment prompted him to create large paintings, some so tall he has to climb a ladder to reach the top. His Buddhist practice and his connection with the nearby flora and fauna help Simpkins to be present in the moment and paint whatever arises from his consciousness. Shapeshifting animals, both earthly and spiritual, reflect the spiritual dimension of his world.

    Pomegranate is proud to produce jigsaw puzzles with thoughtfully conceived, engagingly intricate, and aesthetically appealing images on a solid interlocking format. The sturdy construction combined with the wide image selection and vibrant color reproduction will delight everyone from experts to first-time puzzlers.
