3 – 17 Views Cutouts

17 cutout views of the J.R. Line, Tokyo

After 17 views in watercolor and 17 views in oil, I develop each view of the JR Line, Tokyo, in three dimensions.


Foregrounds and backgrounds are separated, painted on canvas, cut along their silhouette and stretched on wood. A few figures or details are isolated and highlighted with their own cut outs. The views placed side by side recall the old 19th century Dioramas. I call them in French “Planches Dessinées”.
