Oh Audrey...

At lunchtime, I walked down to Outre Gallery to check out the Audrey Kawasaki exhibition. It was, to state the bloody obvious, gorgeous!

Plenty of framed prints hung around the walls. And she'd painted one original piece (below) for the exhibition which I started at until my eyes started to ache. Her technique is flawless - such soft delicate lines and blends. I could look for hours.



I'm always amazed at how effective she makes a piece by leaving things out - like the birds' heads in this piece. I think if she'd included them they would have distracted from that beautifully serene face.

Anyway, I ended up buying a framed limited edition print of this piece - which I believe is only available in Australia at the moment), so 'Overlap' will be taking pride of place on my feature wall in a couple of weeks time (sorry Mark Ryden).

Oh Audrey - you are such an inspiration.
