Alexa Meade uses a convincing painting technique which makes real people look like they are part of a flat painting. She covers her subjects with acrylic paints in such a way that it tampers with the viewers’ ability to separate ‘painting’ from ‘subject’. The artist elaborates on her project by saying that:
My painting technique pushes the boundaries of perception, compressing 3D space into a 2D plane, effectively blurring the lines between art and life. The living paintings series is my spin on reality. By wrapping my subject in a mask of paint, I skew the way that the core of the subject is perceived.
