Superfine! Art Fair Bodypaint Portrait Session Giveaway
Congrats to Marissa Santillo, winner of our bodypaint portrait session giveaway at Superfine! Art Fair!
A big thank you to everyone for your interest and amazing conversations at Superfine! We loved meeting you. Some of the pieces found their ways into amazing homes including a custom embellished "$140,000,000 (Pollock)" joining the collection of "Hamilton's" Lin-Manuel Miranda.
Here are a few quick notable press mentions:
"Blurring the line between performance and immersion... she paints over her models to blend in with historically iconic works of art like Edvard Munch’s The Scream, or van Gogh’s Self Portrait, as a take on society’s materialist culture." - NY Magazine
"Her work celebrates body positivity and diversity" -NY Post
"Her “Lust of Currency” series which examines the role of art, commerce and society in a commoditized culture using a backdrop of famous paintings including the controversial Salvator Mundi." -Hamptons Art Hub
"The collection is a re-interpretation of the most expensive artworks ever sold, told through Merry’s perspective in today’s highly commoditized art economy. The series is an interdisciplinary experience by the artist that merges the viewer with the object of their gaze" -Pulp Lab
"Trina Merry’s unique combination of body painting and photography cleverly camouflaged painted models into the masterworks of geniuses like Van Gogh, Pollock, and Modigliani." -Musee Magazine
Some of our rare embellished works are still available and can be found for a couple more weeks at the Superfine! E-Fair
