The other day whilst searching Art Nouveau prints on the internet, I paid attention to a special one – a Manga style woman with voluptuous hair and butterflies and insects tangled in it. Overall it was sensuous, melancholic, beautiful and innocent. So I clicked it and navigated through artwork from this peculiar artist.
The themes in Audrey Kawasaki‘s work are contradictions within themselves. Her work combines innocence and eroticism. Audrey’s technical style is influenced by both Manga comics and Art Nouveau. The natural grain of the wood panels she paints on brings an unexpected warmth to her subject matter. I particularly liked the design entitled “It’s So Empty Here” as the textures give the sensation of hearing the water bubbles in opposition to her dreaming stillness. The figures she paints are seductive and contain an air of melancholy.
