Quote from Man Ray

"When I discovered the airbrush, it was a revelation - it was wonderful to be able to paint a picture without touching the canvas;
this was a pure cerebral activity. It was also like painting in 3-D;
to obtain the desired effects you had to move the airbrush nearer or farther from the canvas."
