Hyper-Realistic Paintings by Alyssa Monks
Stunning photorealistic paintings by Brooklyn-based artist Alyssa Monks.
Here’s an interesting excerpt of her interview with Flavorwire:
“There are all these ways that water can act on the body. I liked how it added distortion and abstraction, how it could create new texture. It allowed me to use the paint in a more lose, fresh way. The danger with working from a photograph is to flatten things and be really tight; with the water you can’t paint that way. You have to invent water out of paint.”Art Posted on February 7, 2013
