Alexa Meade’s photographs that look like paintings

From her website:

Rather than creating representational paintings on a flat canvas, Alexa Meade 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.

I've either seen her works somewhere else or someone else is doing this too. (Wouldn't surprise me)

At any rate, this is a large step up from the last "artist" that was featured. You know, the one who's work was so good she had to die to get recognized.

There's nothing like a good trompe l'oeil to make you question reality.

Interesting but not much purpose to it.

I really like this work. I've also been creating my own photos that look like paintings, albeit in a very different WAY.
