With influences from manga and Art Nouveau, Audrey Kawasaki paints delicate portraits of seductive females and languid lovers against the background of the always highly-visible grain of the wooden panels she uses. Nature and animals surround these surreal figures with splayed hair, expressive hands, often truncated/cut-off bodies, and yearning expressions. The contrast is between innocence and eroticism, the beauty and morbidity that these figures represent.
