We’ve all heard of body painting. What we might be used to seeing is a sexy expression of nude bodies painted with intricate detail to give the impression the model is wearing clothes. I recently came across an artist profile on PBS, Alexa Meade who uses the reverse of the trompe l’oeil technique in her art work. It is amazing and inspiring. I love how she challenges our perception through her installations, painting, and photography.
Her work can be seen here on her website as well: http://www.alexameade.com
