In case you didn’t notice, there’s a lot more to these works of art by Washington-based Alexa Meade than meets the eye. The 25 year old artist has created these works of art that are not just 2D brushstrokes of paint on canvas, instead, Meade paints directly on top of physical subjects and then photographs the staged scene. When photographed, the representational painting and the subject matter appear to be one and the same as the 3D space becomes optically compressed into a 2D plane. Pretty cool, huh?
This young artist has incredible vision and an outstanding amount of creativity that make us say WHOA!
