Yasuragi by Audrey Kawasaki, oil and graphite on wood, 2007 - click for details

Attenzione lettori italiani!

Audrey Kawasaki is coming to adorn your beautiful capital with her lascivious nymphettas and their tentacled & skeletal friends.

Kakurenbou opens at Mondo Bizzarro this Thursday and will be on show until early October. Further details below.

Admitting my ambiguous love/hate, fascination/boredom relationship with Audrey's work has made me a lot of teenage iEnemies in the past - but I'm sure that an artist who's constantly inundated with praise can sometimes deal with a tiny bit of constructive criticism, nope?

However, when it comes to certain pieces like Yasuragi (above) and Umi no Yami no Jyoou (below - which probably translates to: "Who reads this is stupid."), the love factor definitely outweighs.

So yes, even though I still prefer your earlier works back when your girls' torsi seemed to float in a Bellmeresque state of constant morpholysis, I do like the presence of more and more skulls and skeletal remains in your works, so all is well, everyone's a winner, no baby seals were clubbed and I'm gonna shut up now. o_O

In other news, I just swallowed a piece of orange plastic I found on the floor thinking it was a piece of a carrot. I can't recommend it.
