Wood Panel Art by Audrey Kawasaki.

audreykawasaki3Audrey Kawasaki, one of our favorite artists, is back with her latest series titled Hirari Hirari, which translates from Japanese as “the sound or movement of a petal, leaf, or flower slowly falling.”
Using her signature medium of oil, graphite, and ink on wood panels, the Los Angeles-based painter creates gorgeous depictions of dreamy and enigmatic young women.

Kawasaki’s newest work is inspired by kimonos given to the artist by her mother.
Borrowing the colors and natural motifs found in the traditional Japanese garments, the stunning paintings are filled with vibrant hues, striking flowers and birds, and the fluid lines found in wind and water.
Simultaneously contemporary and traditional, innocent and sensual, the young women’s graceful bodies and delicate features blend seamlessly with the flowing imagery, yet stand out with their bold outlines.
