Kawasaki creates queer women in art

As I first saw on 1234 Tell Me You Love Me More, Audrey Kawasaki’s work is beautiful and breathtaking. The forms and figures are ethereal, a mix of manga comics and Art Nouveau. According to the artist’s Web site: “The themes in Audrey Kawasaki’s work are contradictions within themselves. Her work is both innocent and erotic.” The canvas for her paintings is wood, and the artist incorporates the grain of the wood into the imagery presented in the painting, causing the two to interact. The figures in Kawasaki’s works are of nebulous nymphs, with an air of spirituality, sensualness, sadness and seduction.

While I am not sure of Kawasaki’s sexual orientation, some of her work features pairs of women who seemingly meld together or who are presented in erotic positions together, including kissing. So at least her work is somewhat queer, besides being beautiful.

I have included some samples of the work for you. Enjoy!

Warning: Tame nudity ahead.
