The One Page Comic Show

'On A Day Like This'
oil, graphite, and ink on wood panel

Piece for 'The One Page Comic Show' where artists were asked to tell a story in one page.
I was intrigued by this, since I grew up reading Japanese manga, and once dreamed of becoming a manga artist.
Though it was definitely challenging I enjoyed it.
This group show will be held at Roq La Rue Gallery in Seattle.
Curated by Robbie Lowery.
3/27-3/30 during Emerald City Comic Con.

See everyone's piece HERE.

my 'Hirari Hirari' show at Merry Karnosky Gallery
along with talented Tara McPherson and DeeDee Cheriel
August 2 ~August 30, 2014

Audrey Kawasaki began her artistic career in her native Los Angeles, after some schooling at Pratt Institute in NY. Moments in the artist’s personal life inform both subject matter and context for her paintings, with strong line work and delicate oils blending seamlessly onto naturally grained wood panels. The artists' newest series of paintings entitled Hirari Hirari, which translates from Japanese as the sound or movement of a petal, leaf or feather slowly falling, is inspired by kimonos given to Kawasaki by her mother and draws from natural motifs such as flowers, birds, and flowing lines found in wind and water. Kawasaki's paintings are comprised of dreamy yet enigmatic portraits of women that exist in moments of tension between idealized innocence and sensuality. The compositions are sometimes melancholic, yet are ultimately resolved in their beauty and balance.
