Reisha Perlmutter is an artist who was born in Naples, Florida, who has an incredible talent for creating stunning underwater paintings with extreme detail.

She focuses on human anatomy and figurative painting, making pieces that look like artfully taken high-definition photos. Her project, titled 'AQUA,' showcases her seemingly limitless skill, showing subjects immersed in water in different poses. The underwater paintings are hypnotic to look at, with Perlmutter defying boundaries and portraying her subjects in peaceful yet dangerous situations.

As the artist explains, "AQUA is about merging time, about memories becoming present experience. It is about weightlessness, and our deep connection to our senses beyond the confines of thought or intellect." A key component in Perlmutter's work is the strategic use of light, which is said to represent "internal illumination" metaphorically.
