Three-Dimensional Clouds Appear in Layered Glass


Buenos Aires-based artist Leandro Erlich's Single Cloud Collection gives us a surreal taste of what capturing a cloud in glass would look like. Using the artistic method of layering, Erlich's sculptural pieces are given a three-dimensionality. Each “captured cloud” is the illusionary result of numerous panes of glass that are individually embellished with acrylics.

As a self-proclaimed “architect of the uncertain,” Erlich plays with an audience's visual senses. Time and time again, the artist forces viewers to rethink the way they see things. Like a true magician, he leaves one to question the impossibility of something. What appears to be a three-dimensional anomaly seems to be true based on sensory observation, but, ultimately, is just an illusion.
