September 6th, 2011: this is not a painting



Sure looks like a painting....



Isn't.






Alexa Meade uses acrylics to make real people look like paintings, an displays them live to be photographed in front of matching backdrops.

It's cool because its backwards



Aliantha  Tuesday Sep 6 04:51 AM

performance art almost...but not quite.

Awesome!



DanaC  Tuesday Sep 6 07:06 AM

That's so fucking cool! How cool is that?



infinite monkey  Tuesday Sep 6 08:02 AM

That's pretty freakin' cool, is how cool that is!

Oh, to have any talent whatsoever...

lol

Yah. I'm not bad if I have something simple to copy, but I have like zero artistic talent. That all went to Our Kid. He can sketch, paint, sculpt or build anything. Ridiculously talented.

Mind, mum's very artistic. The pair of them have an eye for shape and colour and stuff that just passes me by entirely :p They come up with these plans for redecorating or rebuilding a room or a piece of furniture, and I just can't see it. Can't visualise it at all. I just nod along. Then they show me the finished product and it's gorgeous.

'Xactly.



CaliforniaMama  Tuesday Sep 6 08:43 AM

It's like an inverted trompe l'oeil. I love it when artists come up with something so completely unique. Thanks for sharing this!

Now someone needs to take one of those photographs and make a painting that looks just like a photograph of a painting.



Sundae  Tuesday Sep 6 10:07 AM

Oh to have talent, perseverance, luck, ambition, drive, self-belief, luck and the right contacts.

I tell you, by this time next year I'd be a millionaire!

because we're all viewing them on lcd screens, right? It's not a painting. It's not a photograph. It's a video display.


Then it's a memory.

That's awesome! But....he doesn't do their hands... looks kind of weird.

Wow, I didn't even notice that! Now that you mention it, it looks so obvious.

It's that hint that artists give us about their art.

You have to leave a spot to let the skin breathe.
Otherwise they die.
It's true, I saw it on Goldfinger.

I remember that! I was struck by it, at the time.
