Alexa Meade

15 Jan

There’s hope. Alexa Meade is 25 and has never been to art school. Many artists use people as models but Alexa uses them as canvas. She plays with acrylic paint and broad brushstrokes to create a living, breathing oil painting. In a two-dimensional photograph they really do look lifeless and incorporeal but as one of her works of art saunters through the aisle of a subway train you have to concede…you have been deceived. Like The Picture of Dorian Gray, Meade’s bodies are works of art that age and interact and question your perception. She claims that what we experience should not always be interpreted at face value, seeing is not always believing.
