Jean-Pierre Weill Paints On Multiple Levels Of Glass To Create Stunning 3D Paintings

When art has been around for thousands of years, it’s not easy to come up with something truly original. In 1992, Jean-Pierre Weill hit on an innovative idea: painting in three dimensions by arranging different parts of a single image on multiple levels of glass. Each painting includes several layers of glass separated by interior frames. The depth creates a game of hide-and-go-seek. Light and shadow create the illusion of movement. Jean-Pierre Weill discovered that he could use this technique, which he called ‘vitreography’â„¢ on a variety of motifs. The more positive feedback he received, the more he expanded his repertoire, from portraits and still-lifes to landscapes, fantasy, and Judaica. You need to watch the videos below to fully understand the concept, execution and optical illusion.
