Your Body Is My Canvas

Alexa Meade compresses 3-dimensional spaces into 2-dimensional planes in a fascinating series of painted installations

Jul 28, 2014 | By Staff Writer

Artist Alexa Meade creates painted installations by painting on her subjects. Literally. She paints on surfaces of the human body, architectural spaces and found objects with a technique that compresses 3-dimensional spaces to 2-dimensional planes when photographed. The result is a fascinating mix of portraits and spaces that blur the lines between painting and reality.
