Description

Welcome to the "Paint A'Licious Salon", where "dreams and fantasies come true with the simplicity of a brushstroke". Nothing is as it seems when renowned artist and photographer Joanne Gair embellishes, conceals, and camouflages her human subjects with paint. "Paint A 'Licious" will have everyone talking this season. We're all familiar with trompe l'oeil painting, art that fools the eye. Renowned body painter and artist Joanne Gair takes the art of trompe l'oeil to an entirely new level with "Paint A 'Licious". But instead of disguising walls or canvas, Gair completely redecorates her human subjects. In the fictional "Paint A'Licious" Salon, Gair invites us to experience our wildest dreams through paint. Washboard abs are achieved without sit-ups, and an hourglass figure requires no liposuction at this specialty salon. By painstakingly painting her subjects - a process that takes many hours - Gair blends them (nearly imperceptibly) into the background scene. You'll be scratching your head in amazement at the fantastic optical illusions Gair creates. A painted child "disappears" under the Christmas tree, barely discernible from the wrapped gifts. A naughty nurse in a uniform made only of paint arrives to cheer up a patient. And are those plaid biker shorts or just a tartan paint job under that Scotsman's kilt? "Paint A 'Licious" is the book everyone will want on their coffee tables.show more
