Oil paintings by Alyssa Monks

hyper-realistic oil painting by New York based artist Alyssa Monks, who uses filters such as glass, vinyl, water, and steam to distort her subjects.

I chased realism until it began to unravel and deconstruct itself. I am exploring the possibility and potential where representational painting and abstraction meet – if both can coexist in the same moment – A. Monks
