Despite the inconvenience and discomfort involved in modern day air travel, there is still a hint of romance about being almost magically transported from one point to another. Arriving at dawn or dusk just adds to the mystery - for a moment, it seems that anything can happen. Such are the feelings captured by Frank Bauer whose airport paintings may appear empty at first glance, but the immenseness of the sky evokes a promise of adventure to come. The title of Bauer's new series, Jet Set, seems more suited to his usual style of party paintings, rather than to a literal interpretation of the subjects of these oils.
