~Australia Shipping for upcoming sales this weekend~

wanted to be super clear since i fear there might be some confusion.

-the Timed Prints (smaller and unframed) shipping is $30 for all international. Australia too!
-the Special Edition (larger and framed) is over the size limit for Australia and will cost $325 for shipping.
for everywhere else it is $45. (international and US.)

So if you reside in Australia i suggest you skip on the framed edition and stick with the timed one. ;)

you can log on to my shop and click the 'Want It' button,
and you will be guaranteed a print!!

"Audrey Kawasaki began her artistic career in her native Los Angeles while always holding ground in her Japanese heritage. Her current work centers round the ideas of finding one’s calm amidst a world of disorder, turmoil and frenzy. The young female character she depicts feels the intense energy of rushing and dashing through our modern world while beautifully, seductively finding her balance of calm & peace. The movement of Audrey’s pieces always pushing & pulling both literally & metaphorically, till one loses oneself in the process. Her sharp controlled lines conveying the possibility of the control & steadiness she seeks.'

~personal note~
looking back at this series,
i realize how strange it is, how unknowingly my work reflects my personal life and state of being.
the colors are monotone, and the expression feel a bit empty and distant,
and to me, there's a feeling of being out of focus. scattered. distracted.
i feel like the past few months,
my heart and mind were going back and forth from place to place. restless.
wanting not wanting. impatiently, desperately trying to find firm ground and confidence to stay strong.
i was constantly trying to keep busy and stay distracted, so time would go by faster.
and yes, time whizzed by, but i feel like i lost focus somewhere along the way.. and was becoming someone unfamiliar.
looking at these pieces now, i am surprised at how apparent it is.
this makes me feel perplexed and a bit sad, but find it necessary, as an artist, to have these phases and then to face them straight on.
im relieved though that my work is still intimately connected to me.
and i feel like i can move past this state.
i already have some ides for the next series. more vibrant more playful. more carefree.
am excited for that change and to explore a different chapter in my life..
