Preview: Audrey Kawasaki "Midnight Reverie" @ Jonathan LeVine Gallery, NYC

Juxtapoz // Thursday, August 30, 2012
Our friends at Boing Boing just posted an exclusive preview of January 2012 cover artist, Audrey Kawasaki's Midnight Reverie exhibition opening at Jonathan LeVine Gallery in NYC on September 8, 2012. Audrey said of the work, "Some of the pieces have windows, like passage-ways into another world, yet it can also feel like limbo or static—wanting to walk through to the other side, but not being able to. Others are deep in the make believe, magical, mystical realm." More after the jump. . .
