Daily Prompt: The Artist’s Eye
I recently discovered Audrey Kawasaki’s artworks through random Tumblr searches. I got instantly attracted to those innocent young girls’ faces in her paintings. Their lovely bedroom eyes depict a subtle melancholy that for some reason, the part of me that doesn’t want to grow up understands.
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. – from Audrey Kawasaki’s website.
