Alexa Meade paints on living subjects. Instead of creating the illusion of 3-D on a 2-D canvas, she creates the illusion of a 2-D canvas on living 3-D subjects. She explores space, light, and surface- by painting on humans.
Keep in mind that these are photographs of people, painted on with real paint, to mimic paintings of people…
In her own words:
“as you’re willing to look beyond what’s already been brought to light, that you can see what’s below the surface, hiding in the shadows, and recognize that there can be more there than meets the eye”
