Alexandra Dillon is a surrealist artist from Los Angeles who paints portraits on such items as brushes, an ax, knives, iron, locks. The girl does not think through the drawings in advance, asserting that the objects themselves tell her who they want to be.
Working on each item for several days, she finds the emotions and personality of her characters. The results are beautiful and attractive faces, often reminiscent of portraits of a Roman-Egyptian mummy or baroque painting. “I am influenced by the art of each era,” she says.
