Imitating Life On Top of Life

Alexa Meade has innovated a Trompe-L’Oeil painting technique that can perceptually compress three-dimensional space into a two-dimensional plane. Her work is a fusion of installation, painting, performance, photography, and video art.

Meade coats her models with a mask of paint, obscuring the body while intimately exposing it, creating an unflinchingly raw account of the person. – Alexa Meade

She puts acrylic paint directly on live models, so they appear to be two-dimensional paintings of themselves. –A Cup of Jo
