Introduction

Cousteau Tazuke's unconventional painting technique reveals intense (colorful and in the same time tactile) imaginary. Tazuke carves into clear acrylic panels, pours acid-colored paint in the resulting cavities and then exhibits these works backwards, thus subverting the opposition of the front and the rear -- the positive and negative -- of the picture and transcending the borderline between the process of carving and the work of drawing, the art of sculpture and that of painting.
