Biography

Influenced by manga comics and Art Nouveau, Audrey Kawasaki creates delicate figurative paintings that fuse innocence with erotica and fantasy. In each carefully rendered depiction, a beautiful young woman, lost in thought, becomes a visual manifestation of loneliness and longing. Studying Kawaski’s paintings is often like spying secretly through a keyhole, with perhaps a lurking suggestion that the girls are aware they are being watched. Working on smooth wood panels, Kawasaki allows the wood grain to merge with the image, giving the paintings an antique timelessness.
