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.

Erlich plays with an audience’s visual senses. 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.
