BEAUTY: Art--Alexa Meade

Alexa Meade has found a startling way to exercise her painting skills. Instead of canvas, she paints directly onto her models and inserts them into painted tableaux. The result is a living piece of art.

Top to bottom: Natura Morta and installation view; two views of Transit; Curated and installation; Blueprint and in-progress view.

Her work reminds me of a fantastic David Bowie video for a song called "Look Back In Anger" in which a painting magically transfers itself to Bowie's face...
