Audrey Kawasaki at Outré Gallery

November 3, 2010

Last Friday I went to the opening night of Audrey Kawasaki’s “Tangled” exhibition. I’ve been such a fan of her work for a few years now, but this was the first time I’d ever seen her work in person (I missed her show the last time she came to Sydney).

Kawasaki
“Just Like You” and “Stranger”

Even if you don’t know her name, you probably know her work. Seductive girls with heavy eyelids gazing out from wooden panels. I love that you can tell an Audrey Kawasaki just from looking at it. Her work is so distinctive.

The exhibition at Outré features a handful of original works, and some prints. It’s the original works that you must definitely go see. I bought one of Audrey’s giclée prints a few years ago (Mizuame) – but it just pales in comparison to seeing the genuine article (needless to say, none of these photos do her works justice)

The new Outré gallery! Much more gallery-like than the old one! I like it

I swear I don’t know how long I stared at these paintings trying to see the brush strokes. They’re imperceptible!

If you’re in Sydney, you definitely should go! “Tangled” runs at Outré Gallery until the 15th November (Hit the link below for more details)

    I went to Paddington on the weekend just to find that Outre gallery has moved 😦 I’ll have to go this weekend or sometimes soon..

    Beautiful photos as usual 😀

      I know! I was walking towards where I thought Outré was from my work, when I suddenly came across it on Crown Street! So crazy! If I hadn’t been walking down Crown, I would have kept walking and missed it altogether! It’s a much nicer/modern space though! And close to lots of cool shops and restaurants 🙂 It’s at the Oxford St end of Crown St.

      Definitely go before it finishes! So worth it!
