Talking to Alexa Meade

What type of artist are you? I would not classify my art as belonging to a specific genre. In this project there is interplay among such diverse art media as painting, installation, performance, photography, and video.

Natural Morta, Live installation:Acrylic paint on found objects,walls and flesh

How long does painting take?The amount of time it takes to paint an installation has to do with the complexity of the scene. A simple head and shoulders portrait may take a couple of hours, while a full body portrait with a painted scene takes longer. The most challenging part of this project is that all of the painting and photography has to be completed within a day. It’s not like I can send my model home covered in paint and say, “see you tomorrow!”
