Noah Becker's paintings are impossible to "pin down", as it were. The expression of "pin down" is apt: many of Mr. Becker's works, representing "floating" or "lost" continents adrift in the clouds, resemble not dioramas so much as individual butterflies from a collection, suspended in the ether. And each butterfly, if you will, contains all of the wonder and beauty (and, of course, being "pinned down" and dead, all of the horror) of the entire world.
