Had a fantastic time at opening of Audrey Kawasaki’s Tangled exhibition here at Outre’ in Melbourne last night – was fantastic finally getting to see some of her originals close up. The colours of the originals are just that much more breathtaking, richer and brighter. And it was actually really reassuring to see the occasional tiny paint drops, flicks and indentations where a hair had come out of her brush and later been removed – these little imperfections don’t show up in the prints; Or that her beautiful curvy line-work is actually made up of a lot of smaller brush strokes. Apologies for the slight blurryness of the above pic, was a cheeky snap w the iphone, but has picked up the warm sunset colours pretty well. So here are the others that were at the show :
We arrived a little late as to miss the major part of the crowd, so sadly didn’t get to hear if Audrey gave a talk. Also meant all the rare prints had been snapped up, as well as all the originals except Tangled… which would set you back a good ten grand. But we were lucky enough to score one of the prints of Tangled – Yuss, get to pick it up this week. Can’t wait to get to hang it in the lounge and enjoy… Yay for having a boyfriend who makes impulse purchases, even if it means we have a week of eating two minute noodles and soup before next pay!
Sort of wishing I was getting to see the Sydney show too, but will have to settle with urging friend there to go and snap pics…. They get five more new originals, plus a whole other set of rare prints *Sigh*
More info about Audrey can be found over on her website : http://www.audrey-kawasaki.com/ and she updates her blogs really frequently, i-seldom-do even has a couple of pics up from the show today : http://i-seldom-do.livejournal.com/ http://baibai-matane.livejournal.com/
