Alexa Meade

31. Januar 2012 - 11:53 Uhr

Alexa Meade is a 25-year-old artist whose work lies at the intersection of painting, photography, performance and installation.





Rather than creating representational paintings on a flat canvas, Alexa Meade creates her representational paintings directly on top of the physical subjects that she is referencing. When photographed, the representational painting and the subject being referenced appear to be one and the same as the 3D space of her painted scenes becomes optically compressed into a 2D plane.

Art Installation „Blackfield“

12. Januar 2012 - 11:24 Uhr

London-based artist Zadok Ben David created this incredible installation using cut steel botanical specimens modeled from old textbook illustrations, each embedded in a thin layer of sand. On first encountering the sprawling array of plants they appear completely black, thus the installation’s title: Blackfield. However when viewed from the opposite side, a field of black turns into a wall of color. (artclub)

20000 plants made of stainless steel, hand painted during the past 3 years, planted on the floor, covered by sand:
