Audrey Kawasaki

The themes in Audrey Kawasaki's work are contradictions within themselves. Her work is both innocent and erotic. Each subject is attractive yet disturbing. Audrey's precise technical style is at once influenced by both manga comics and Art Nouveau. Her sharp graphic imagery is combined with the natural grain of the wood panels she paints on, bringing an unexpected warmth to enigmatic subject matter.

The figures she paints are seductive and contain an air of melancholy. They exist in their own sensually esoteric realm, yet at the same time present a sense of accessibility that draws the observer to them. These mysterious young women captivate with the direct stare of their bedroom eyes.

She is most possibly my favourite artist ever. I hope to someday soon visit an exhibition of hers or something, damn her first exhibition in Japan when I am not there! Please go to her website, it’s worth the trip incase you haven’t already.

The Stella collaboration picture is possibly my favourite.
