‘Your Body is My Canvas’ …. “🎨 Alexa Meade, American Installation Artist 🎨 …. “!!

ALEXA MEADE

WHAT A DISCOVERY!

I just found Alexa Meade today. It’s a treat for my senses.

A reprieve from daily life.

Amazing talent!

RedLineBAlexa Meade (born 1986) is an American Installation Artist best known for her portraits painted directly onto the human body and inanimate objects in a way that collapses depth and makes her models appear two-dimensional when photographed. What remains is “a photo of a painting of a person, and the real person hidden somewhere underneath.”

She takes a classical concept – trompe l’oeil, the art of making a two-dimensional representational painting look like a real three-dimensional space – and turns it on its head by doing the opposite, making real life appear to be a painting.

~~Published on Sep 6, 2013~~

Alexa Meade takes an innovative approach to art. Not for her a life of sketching and stretching canvases. Instead, she selects a topic and then paints it – literally. She covers everything in a scene – people, chairs, food, you name it – in a mask of paint that mimics what’s below it.

In this eye-opening talk Meade shows off photographs of some of the more outlandish results and shares a new project involving people, paint and milk.

BEAUTIFUL HOMAGE TO IMMIGRANTS

In need of something uplifting and inspiring.

Something to lift up the soul.

My heart, my soul are raw … sometimes I feel I can’t breathe.

Today is one of those days!

~THE BACKBONE OF AMERICA~

The dance world already knows that Keone and Mari Madrid are brilliant storytellers, choreographers who can create narrative movement that moves us. But we especially love it when they use their choreographic voices to highlight important causes.

For this year’s VIBE Dance Competition exhibition performance, the husband-and-wife duo created a beautiful homage to the immigrants who form the backbone of America.

Inspired by their grandparents, “who came to America to make a new life for their families,” and by “the many displaced humans around the world who are trying to do the same,” We Are is an emotional exploration of the trials immigrants have faced – and continue to face today.

Its message hits even more powerfully thanks to its innovative use of video projections (by Vibrvncy/Nick Kim) and some ingenious set design (by Brandon and John Arii).

A Picture Says a Thousand Words …. “😥 This one, a cartoon, screams, #69 …. My Heart and Soul Ache for My Country 😥 …. “!!

Need I say more?

I was in Puerto Rico last week.

I returned on Tuesday, May 29, that was the day when I became aware of the results of this study.

I knew this was true even after the first few days after Hurricane María battered the Island.

I will never forget or forgive the current American administration or the current Puerto Rican administration for the totally inadequate response to this disaster.

The conditions back home aren’t adequate still.

Uncle Sam, there’s Puerto Rican blood on your hands. 

The mighty, imperialistic US of A doesn’t care about it’s colony.

The Puerto Rican government is as corrupt as the American one.

4,645 Puerto Ricans, (so far), paid the ultimate price!

Marlette received a priceless editorial cartoon education while living with his uncle and Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist Doug Marlette in Hillsborough, N.C. Doug’s tragic death in July of 2007 made evermore poignant the elder Marlette’s fierce and faithful devotion to the art form of editorial cartooning as a cornerstone of American free speech.

With this in mind, Andy works daily to learn and uphold the disciplines and values passed on to him by his late uncle. Andy’s editorial cartoons have become both hated and adored by daily readers.

“WE DEMAND TO LIVE”

Joaquín Oliver

“The last day I saw my son was Valentine’s Day, so he was bringing flowers for his girlfriend.

We all have the right to react however we want. But the way we react will also be part of who you are. I lost my son and my best friend which is very painful. I can just be sad or fight.

It shouldn’t be the ‘new normal‘ to think that our kids could be targets.

This is not about me. This is not about how I feel. This is about my son. He’s part of what the kids are asking for.

Those kids you saw in Washington now have a new member.

Joaquín has a voice.”

Composite Photo Update, #3 …. 🇵🇷 Honoring my Country, Puerto Rico 🇵🇷 …. ‘Proud Boricua Woman’ …. “!!

HONORING PUERTO RICO

PERSONAL PHOTOGRAPH MADE WITH ‘LIVE COLLAGE’

“That looks like a Puerto Rican statue of liberty on steroids.”

(a friend told me)

Some of you may know, others not.

I am a fan of tattoos, having a few of them myself.

I’m also Puerto Rican, born and raised, living in the mainland.

Since September 20, 2017, when Hurricane María battered and almost flattened my country, my personal feelings have come to the surface.

My heart and soul ache for Puerto Rico.

It’s been a week today since I visited my tattoo artist for add ons, updates, coloring and completion.

Colors, shading, The ‘cemí’, the hibiscus flowers, the ‘Taíno coquí’ and the ‘Taíno sun‘ were completed.

The process is almost totally done.

Only minor details for the last sitting.

My tattoo artist, Barefoot Stacy, is amazing!

Here it is!

RedLineBSTatt

This is a proud Boricua woman, holding her head up high, ready to hold her stand and give the good fight.

This happens in Puerto Rico every minute of every day.

The fortitude of the Puerto Rican woman has been tested during the trying times since Hurricane María battered the Island on September 20, 2018, a bit beyond six months ago today.

I wanted to share another ‘almost complete’ result with you today.

 More will follow as it’s totally done.
