new show by Audrey Kawasaki

New show by Audrey Kawasaki

 The incredibly talented and very popular Audrey Kawasaki has just opend her new show "Restlessly still".
like the name suggests the new works are quiet yet with an element of tension. I always enjoy the lightness of Audrys works, shapes merge and fade, figures are clear yet transparent and ethereal.
I especially like the otherworldly ambiance of the pictures below, it is a feeling I have often sort to create in my own work.
to see all of Audreys new work go to her art blog http://i-seldom-do.livejournal.com

(no subject)

HHurray I have finally finished this painting. I have been working on this of and on for two years. I kept leaveing it and doing other things, but now is finally done. I dont know what to call it yet. Youd think over the course of two years I'd have thought of a name but no. I'll call her "Lush green" for now. Here she is below, sorry details first then the full pic. The camerra dident pick up the blues or purpels well. I'll have to take some with the good old SLR. luv.

love Camille rose garcias new work

One of my all time fav artists is Camille rose garcia and while I was checking in at the "arrested motion" site (brilient site) I was very exitted to see that she has a new show up. Her new works are even brighter and more psychedelic than before. I love love the depth and colours.
