Flesh on Flesh: Multiple Exposure Paintings by Shaina Craft

The artist’s brush strokes define the final picture on canvas. Strong lines come alive with every hard swoosh of the brush and the gentle swings of the artist’s wrists create a smooth flow on the artwork. Artist Shaina Craft uses the human body as the subject for her amazing picturesque overlaps.

Focus on the human body is evident in the works of *Shaina Craft* and her stunning technique is showcased in oil, pastel and canvas. Her works are reminiscent of long exposure shots as well as overlapping multiple frames to create an almost abstract image out of the human form in her large scale paintings.

Her projects _Experiments in Flesh_ and _Identities Like Onions_ explore the territory of the human body as a medium for magnificent imagery. Craft’s use of the human form interpreted thru overlapping images anchor the surrealist effect of the paintings. This overlapping of colors and the human shape hint an effect of fluid motion that is also reminiscent of photography stills.
