Alexa Meade,Submerges Her Subject in a Pool of Milk

In collaboration with Sheila Vand, Alexa Meade explores what happens when the canvas becomes a pool of cream. Mixing borders, expressive artists compose an identity for each image.
The artist Alexa Meade has invented a technique of painting on the surfaces of objects, people and architectural spaces to optically compress 3D space in a 2D plane. It is known for its "tableaux vivants", where the bodies of his subjects become the canvas. Since 2012, she collaborated with the actress Sheila Vand performance on a range of projects covering various media.
In the spirit of artistic recreation, “MILK”: what will you make of me? Is their first album together. The work explores the fluidity of form over time and space.

In Installation of 4200 Strings of Rice Grains by Sayaka Ishizuka

The villagers of Inakadate aren’t the only ones getting creative with their rice. Japanese artist Sayaka Ishizuka is showing new work at Pearl Lam Gallery in Shanghai. “Life Threads” is a walk-in installation consisting of, among other things, 4200 handmade strings of rice grains hung from the ceiling. The work, which took 18 months to complete, looks like rain pouring down onto the earth and being collected in old antique bowls and jars. There is a strong sense of life and interconnectedness throughout the entire piece, given how closely rain, rice and life are intertwined with each other, especially in Asian cultures.

Life Threads is on display through August 23, 2014.
