Fake Painting Photography

A friend posted this link on Facebook, and when I went to the website it took me a solid minute to realize what I was seeing. Through the link is a series of photographs by Washington, DC artist Alexa Meade in which acrylic paint has been applied to subjects. The resulting images are look uncannily like paintings on canvas but are actually installation pieces.

I've included a few of my favourites here, but definitely check out the full gallery over at Bored Panda. This is the most effective realization of a "living painting" that I've seen since What Dreams May Come (say what you will about that movie, it was visually stunning). This is one of the most interesting and unique concepts I've encountered in recent memory, and I'm very curious to see what else Meade can come up with.

Thanks to Bekky for the link.
