Trina Merry – Body Paintings

Trina Merry resides in NYC’s East Village, creating art in a studio at Chelsea, but her pieces are very unique in “performance” art. She uses models as a canvas for her pieces, and documents them at a specific location, creating a relationship between the subject and the location. What she creates in the connection is what she describes as a “human experience”. How Merry uses the subject in her pieces is that she makes them almost invisible. She paints them into the background, have them pose, and documents them into a photograph, having them blend into their surroundings. Although, she has also done pieces where she uses models and creates an illusion of buildings or animals out of them.
