Audrey Kawasaki - “The Drawing Room”- 11.09.08

kawasaki1.jpgAs promised, here’s a look into the “THE DRAWING ROOM” curated by Audrey Kawasaki at Thinkspace that opened last night. As can be expected ~ extremely packed, people flowing onto the streets, drinking and clutching their limited edition prints like gold, inside people following audrey around in hopes of taking their picture with her… all her works sold out instantly… really, amazing show… and you can see all of my random pics in the notcot gallery ~ and all of the pieces at the thinkspace site, but what was really above and beyond any normal gallery showing was Audrey’s display in the front window space.

She basically recreated her studio in the window, like a dreamy lifesize diorama or creative goodness ~ filled with vintage finds and half finished sketches, it was like stepping into the world behind the works within the gallery, and it was beautiful! As she says on her blog, “i’ve been working on the front room installation for the past couple nights… it is suppose to represent an artist’s workspace/studio/nook, and it pretty much turned out to be a duplicate of my own. i can practically live there!” I wouldn’t be able to resist watching, pressed against the window, if she were to really “move in” and do some sketching in that adorable space!

Oh, I am so envious you got to go to this! I love the hanging birdcages and skeleton keys. Great aesthetic she has. It WOULD have been cool if she did some live work in that space, I bet people would have paid for it :]

----- Kaleb 10.11.08 06:56

I was totally there! :D It was such an awe-inspiring show. And (as evidenced by the tremendous crowd outside) I am not the only one who thinks so. Audrey’s such a brilliant artist, and yet so warm and approachable. :)
