Super Kawaii – Series 2016

This series was created for the Super Kawaii show, hosted by Matchbox Studios in Wellington, New Zealand. Since the overall theme was Kawaii (Japanese for “cute”), I had drawn girls sporting brightly coloured hair, wearing Japanese fashion such as Gothic Lolita, woodland animals such as Foxes, Rabbits, and Birds in compositions that convey the idea of “cute”. The composition and bright colours of the works is to convey a sort of Dream or Wonderland-like feel; objects are jumbling together, falling or bunched up with paint splattering around. Everything is a mess, nothing is quite right or what it seems – the hints of drug use in some of the works add to a darker, psychedelic feel as well as raise questions.
