Artist of the Week: Alexa Meade

These are not paintings of people.  They are paintings ON people.

“Alexa Meade is a 23-year-old artist based in the Washington, DC area. The reverse trompe l’oeil series is Alexa Meade’s spin on reality. Alexa has invented a painting technique that makes 3 dimensional space look flat, blurring the lines between illusion and reality. Typically a painting is an artist’s interpretation of the subject painted onto another surface. In Alexa’s paintings, she creates her artistic interpretation of the subject directly on top of the subject itself. Essentially, her art imitates life – on top of life. By wrapping her subject in a mask of paint, she skews the way that the core of the subject is perceived.”
