Modern Lolita with Audrey Kawasaki


About ten years ago, I stumbled upon an image of one of Audrey Kawasaki’s paintings online. I have been in love with her ever since. The women in her paintings are light, sensual, innocent, slightly mysterious, and full of a pouty brooding that drags me in and keeps me.

Kawasaki’s integration of the panel’s woodgrain into the body of the paintings is a stylistic aspect that helps keep each piece light and flowing and helps to keep the subjects flowing within the painting. Keeping the subjects minimalist and light create an air of a modern-day Lolita, an ever so slightly older Dolores Haze with a happier ending.
