The human figure is able of doing anything and also adapting to anything. Artist Trina Merry uses the malleable nature of the body to create visual illusions and surreal imagery.

The conceptual artist’s canvas include the human body and surrounding environments. She paints people’s full body and manages to incorporate them into the many kids of landscapes around her. By doing so she makes the body almost invisible. She can either blend her art with the environment or, by putting together an athletic group, she forms figures ranging from scorpions to motorcycles. “I am a conceptual artist and often I am inspired by the bodies themselves—by what they can and can’t do.” Says the artist.

When looking at some of her work, at first glance you might think you’re looking at something normal but in closer examination one starts to notice that the Fiat car, for instance, is actually made out of real people. It’s really interesting how Trina manages to blend these models into the background and into each other, I mean they look like they are actually part of the real thing.

Her work is equally at ease in avant-garde performance works in museums as well as in commercial advertising campaigns. Visit the artist’s website to see more of her work. Love the work? You can get your own print at the artist’s online shop.
