ARTSY: The End Of The Innocents


In her recent work Audrey Kawasaki continues to captivate her viewers with voyeuristic images of young women caught in seemingly very private moments. She explores (and challenges) the innocence of her subjects by placing them in suggestive environments and provocative poses. At first glance they seem harmless and innocent but upon further investigation they can also appear to be mischievous and naughty. These stylized figures often seduce viewers with their “melancholy” expressions and “bedroom eyes.” This mixed with Kawasaki’s soft and subtle style creates a tension in her work and makes her paintings irresistible to anyone who encounters them.
