Miles Bair
"As in the Spring" , Oil Painting on Canvas with Gold Leaf

2015

About

Bair is the director of the School of Art at Illinois Wesleyan University. Although the influence of Japanese artistic tradition is evident in his work, the Northern Wisconsin landscape informs the paintings most intimately. The brush handling technique Bair uses is not pointillism; instead, the deliberate and considerate placement of the thousands of dots that compose his visions provide rich contrast to the black underpainting and ethereal, shimmering metallic leaf.
