World Silhouette Museum
Finds the much-loved elder statesman of Japanese art cutting cutesy figures and elaborate, doily-dainty backgrounds out of paper colored in rainbow-bright hues. Each panel is backlit by light boxes in the darkened gallery. The net effect crosses stained glass with televised cartoons. Fujishiro Seiji has been making these Kage-e, or paper-cut pictures, since the 1940s; his wide-eyed mermaids, mischievous kitties and elves shod in go-go boots set precedents for much of the ecstatic, helium-filled Japanese art we see today.
