During daytime hours next week on Tuesday, August 4 and Wednesday, August 5 and evening hours on Thursday, August artist Alexa Meade will bring her performative and illusory painting techniques to our exhibition floor.
Los Angeles-based artist Alexa Meade has made a name for herself by turing real people into walking, talking works of art. Using acrylic paints, she paints on the skin of human subjects in a way that optically flattens them into two-dimensional paintings.
- Painted people by Alexa Meade. Meade's unique process takes the real life body and creates an illusion that it is a form. By carefully observing the body and it's contours she paints the model and the environment to simulate a painting.
