On the Frontier Facebook Page Claudia has introduced us to the work of 25 year old artist Alexa Meade.

Now, we like Alexa Meade because she is young and interesting and rather than creating representational paintings on a flat canvas, she 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.
