My work is an attempt to challenge the audience’s customary modes of visual perception and notions associated with the permanence of art. I wanted to create a visual illusion, replacing the traditional use of a canvas in painting by applying paint directly onto living models. My technique exaggerates the physical surfaces of the body, leaving only unpainted eyes to reveal that the images are not traditional paintings. In doing so 3D objects are collapsed into 2D elements, appearing as living and moving portraiture, captured by photography and video.
