ALEXA MEADEALL LIFE IN COLORS

The Los Angeles-based artist Alexa Meade (b. 1986) has been cau­sing a world­wide sen­sa­tion since 2010 through her uni­que tech­ni­que of trans­for­ming objetcs and models into flat, two-dimensional images of them­sel­ves. Her third solo exhi­bi­tion at the Gal­lery for Con­tem­porary Pho­to­gra­phy, Munich, focu­ses on works from the years 2016–2017, but there are also a few fine art prints from her early work on exhi­bit, not yet shown in Munich.

ALEXA MEADEALL LIFE IN COLORS

The Los Angeles-based artist Alexa Meade (b. 1986, Washing­ton, DC) first sought a career on Capi­tol Hill after stu­dy­ing poli­ti­cal sci­ence and joi­ning the Obama cam­paign in 2008. She dis­co­vered by acci­dent in 2009 a new tech­ni­que for pain­ting on people and objects in such a way that the pho­to­gra­phic image gives the impres­sion of a con­ti­nuous pain­ted sur­face. She uses paint on the sur­faces of three-dimensional forms to rein­ter­pret them as flat, two-dimensional rep­re­sen­ta­ti­ons of them­sel­ves. Her art inte­gra­tes the gen­res of pain­ting, pho­to­gra­phy, per­for­mance and instal­la­tion. The result ques­ti­ons our view­ing hab­its and allows us to rethink our own per­cep­tion as well as the truth of images in gene­ral.
Alexa has had exhi­bi­ti­ons and per­for­man­ces in all inter­na­tio­nal art metro­po­li­ses. Her third solo exhi­bi­tion at the Gale­rie für Foto­gra­fie der Gegen­wart, Munich, focu­ses on works from the years 2016–2017, but there are also a few fine art prints from her early work on exhi­bit, not yet shown in Munich.
