take a second look...

... and you'll see that you're not in fact looking at a painting, but rather a photograph of a live person painted into their surroundings. Alexa Meade, 23 year old artist from the Washington DC area, creates instillation pieces, wherein she uses acrylic paint to transform live models and objects into three dimensional paintings. i cannot stop looking at these images, what an innovative mind.

"I paint representational portraits directly on top of the people I am representing. The models are transformed into embodiments of the artist's interpretation of their essence. When captured on film, the living, breathing people underneath the paint disappear, overshadowed by the masks of themselves."
~ Alexa Meade
