Alexa Meade (born 1986) is an American installation player best known for her portraits painted directly onto the human body and inanimate objects in a showing off that collapses intensity and makes her models appear two-dimensional subsequently photographed. What remains is “a photo of a painting of a person, and the genuine person hidden somewhere underneath.” She takes a classical concept – trompe-l’œil, the art of making a two-dimensional representational painting look like a genuine three-dimensional space – and does the opposite, making genuine life appear to be a painting.
