About this work

As my interpretation of Gaia, inspired by already existing folklores, I’ve created my own fictitious tale about two goddesses.

Chi ruled the earth/soil/ground and Ku ruled the sky/heaven/air/water. The two fell madly in love with each other. But the other gods forbade their union, and turned Chi into a static dead tree form. Ku, in hopes of reuniting with Chi, and bringing life back into her lover, accepts her fate, sacrifices herself/body/being, and is preparing to entangle herself with Chi, to become one with her. From this, the union of earth, air, and water is born, giving life to all that exists now on this planet.

Bio

Audrey Kawasaki is a Japanese-American artist, born and raised in Los Angeles, where she currently lives and works. 
Kawasaki grew up reading Japanese manga comics, which inspired her to draw from an early age. She started taking after-school fine art classes at Mission Renaissance in her late teenage years. There she learned the basic foundation of drawing and painting. She attended Pratt Institute in New York after graduating high school, but left after two years without completion of degree. She started professionally showing at various art galleries in the US and internationally since 2005. 
Kawasaki’s work contains contrasting themes of innocence and eroticism, conveying the mysterious intrigue of feminine sensuality. Her sharp imagery is painted with precision onto wooden panels, the natural grain adding warmth to her enigmatic subject matter. The artist’s creative influences include eastern as well as western traditions such as Art Nouveau and Japanese Manga comics. She paints sultry, seductive and uninhibited female subjects with delicate beauty and provocative, direct eye contact. Their graceful gestures and ghost-like features carry mysterious expressions of melancholy and longing. 
Audrey likes noodles, broth, lime, lemonade, video games, dancing, Jack Russell Terriers, and white wine.
