New York City artists, Chadwick Gray and Laura Spector
, currently residing in Chiang Mai, Thailand. After receiving permission from museums around the world, the artists look for an elaborate painting that will cover Chadwick’s body.
Once the painting begins, the original 19th century painting of a woman, which was painted by a man, is now repainted by a female on a male body in the 21st century. Chadwick admits the 12 to 15 hour process is painful, especially because he has to pose completely still, almost in a meditative trance. The resulting photographs reveal a unification of art combining antiquity, history and technology in a contemporary context.
It is really cool to see those visually confusing creation, and it make me dizzy for a while.
