Trina Merry is fine art bodypainter who makes sculpture out of humans, because marble is for pussies apparently. You carve marble, and it stays that way. Naked, painted models tend to sweat, breathe, and scratch an itch. The image above is from her series “Human Motorcycle Project”. According to Terry, “Everyone has seen the pictures of scantily clad women next to motorbikes and cars, and it can look a bit trashy.”. True, that. So she turned the concept of trashy right around by making bikes entirely out of naked athletic models. The effect is surprisingly classy. She said: “My surface is living, breathing human beings making this a highly relevant & immediate medium. I use non-toxic hypoallergenic paint applied with a brush or airbrush. The painting is temporary, like a Tibetan sand painting, beginning to change into another work as soon as I stop painting, changing texture & color.”
I love my dogs, reading books, and taking great pictures with my battered but still functional digital camera. Taking great pictures with a high end camera is almost too easy, producing fantastic images with an outdated one is an accomplishment by itself.
