Thin Air
KMR Arts

Various

These large scale pieces in Thin Air begin as photographs that Erb takes out of airplane windows while traveling. The images are then printed on watercolor paper. After adhering the paper to board, the artist then adds as many as 20 layers of encaustic wax and additional pigment to create a gauzy almost hazy look. The magic of these pictures is that they combine opposing impressions: hazy with clear, impressionism with realism, dream with fact, solidity with transparency.
