Now I get it and again...How cool?! Alexa Meade, from USA, has created a new art form it seems. She likes to blend people into her creations in a pretty unusual way. With her aesthetic, she manages to play around skillfully combing paint, portraiture, photography and performance.
Meade is an installation artist based in the Washington, DC area. Her innovative use of paint on the three dimensional surfaces of found objects, live models, and architectural spaces has been incorporated into a series of installations that create a perceptual shift in how we experience and interpret spatial relationships.
When asked about her about her thought process. Here is what she said:
"I paint representational portraits directly on top of the people I am representing. The models are transformed into embodiments of the artist's interpretation of their essence. When captured on film, the living, breathing people underneath the paint disappear, overshadowed by the masks of themselves."
