About

Miles Bair's paintings are beautiful and lush landscapes done through a technique of pointillism combined with perfectly applied gold leafing. The reflective quality of the metallic leaf gives the impression of being within the landscape as the sun shines from behind the trees and off the surface of the water.

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.
