Collection: GAMES 2020

This, the 10th dollarsandart collection Games2020  celebrates boardgames of yesteryear with a twist capturing the present surreal situation we found ourselves in from Spring 2020 that started with a teaser....

The idea originally was to hold an exhibition with a real collection of board games from the 1960's, 70's 80's and beyond and showcase aboard the QE2, permanently docked in Dubai and a dollarsandart residency venue for 2020 and beyond!

 

Then the Gorilla got busy getting his game on....

 

With a post-per-day on social media  leading this  online pop(-a-matic)art  print celebration of a health awareness meets gaming combo collection highlighting the perceived importance of social distancing and such like each with a unique twist on the pretty much Covid 19 global lockdown of March, April, May, June and into July 2020 as the show goes on.....


More people at home, more time at home - more, well - time for everything! 

Getting Jiggy with it!

It was via instagram as one post per day of each game came a couple of suggestions from locked down collectors in various parts of the world of 'Can we have this in a jigsaw format, please - great for keeping the family busy!'

So what started with a 500 piece jigsaw then moved onto a 1,000 piecer with a 2,000 one in full effect! To add that extra value there's the 'personalised boxed lid' option, at no extra cost, a dollar-doodle by the Artist so the inside lid of the jigsaw becomes the artwork!

Why GAMES 2020?

It's my duty to capture this time and I generally  feel good after a board game - unless it's tedious scrabble, trivial pursuits with high octane quizers and semi-clad twister!  To illustrate the point - the first in the series takes 'Mousetrap' to 'Housetrap' ....

 

Game playing stimulates brain areas that are responsible for complex thought and memory formation for both – kids and adults, it assists in practicing essential cognitive skills, such as problem solving and decision making.

 

What with the 2020 Olympic games being postponed for 12 months the show must go on so let the GAMES2020 commence! Compiling this collection has really helped focus on creative output and I hope will brighten up your day in dealing with the challenges this Brave New World now offers.....

 

This too shall pass, in the meantime, stay positive, don't stopping loving and never live in fear - it really doesn't matter especially when there are jigsaws to be done!

Happy gaming / happy jigging!
