Now showing at the Jonathan LeVine Gallery in New York are new works by Audrey Kawasaki. Her highly anticipated solo exhibition started with an opening reception this past Saturday, December 12th. The new series called, Hajimari, is just as beautiful and gorgeous as one would expect. Toeing the line between innocent and erotic, Audrey's paintings always keep us guessing.
As the gallery states, “Contradiction is a concept that also plays an important role in Audrey's provocative subject matter. The paradox of identity in the perception and allure of the unknown is what lies behind the direct gaze of her subjects–who remain a constant mystery, even to Audrey. Other issues include: coming of age, social pressure, inner-conflict, innocence, sexual maturity, idealizing, idolizing, femininity and desire.”
If you're in New York, make sure to check out her show which runs until January 9, 2010.
