Feature: Audrey Kawasaki

Juxtapoz // Sunday, June 10, 2007
Pleasure: in the moment of. Audrey Kawasaki's girls stare stonily, giving way to listless abandon. In their certain sadness, in their cooling reserve, there is still a sweet charm to these tousled enchantresses, who are both ethereal and vulgar. "I think it's the struggle that appeals to me," says Kawasaki, "Of youth and innocence and life as anew." She's discussing the subject matter of her work, how she often depicts very young-faced girls erotically. "And then the inner turmoil. The conflicting self," she says of the social pressure and the idealization of sex at the coming of age. "It's so fragile and beautiful to me. The delicacy and vulnerability of that time."

Audrey Kawasaki posted some in-process photos of a new painting she's working on. Like a too-long Haiku, she writes, "i like her best in the first few minutes of painting her. when she's just barely there. like a ghost, slowly creeping up to surface." Be sure to look over the rest of her blog. Lots of beautiful images including her piece for the Venus group show that opens on June 8th at Roq La Rue in Seattle, and her exquisuite central piece, titled "Oiran", that she contributed to Smitten, which just wrapped up at Thinkspace in LA. Her blog: {moscomment}
