I want to share this amazing artwork by a young artist named Alexa Meade
Rather than creating representational paintings on a flat canvas, Alexa Meade creates her representational paintings directly on top of the physical subjects that she is referencing.
When photographed, the representational painting and the subject being referenced appear to be one and the same as the 3D space of her painted scenes becomes optically compressed into a 2D plane.
Alexa Meade art is playful as well as skillful combing paint, portraiture, photography and performance.
The finalized work is one that is beautifully engaging, temporary and colorfully alive.
