On September 8, Jonathan Levine Gallery in New York will open three solo shows byAudrey Kawasaki, Jeff Soto and Judith Supine. Known for her ethereal paintings of delicate heroines, Audrey Kawasaki (Hi-Fructose Collected Edition 2 cover artist) appears to have taken a new direction in her work, creating darker pieces that show her female protagonists with a sense of authority and occult sensuality. Jeff Soto (Hi-Fructose Vol. 16 cover artist) and Judith Supine’s works display a different kind of edginess, with Soto’s paintings exploring the ideas of death and regeneration and Supine’s collages playing with the concept of gender identity. Take a look at our preview of the three shows, images courtesy of Jonathan Levine Gallery.
“I got this theme from the idea of a sperm bank. Sperm donations are classified according to educational background or appearance. Great expectations are entrusted to microscopic life which can be sucked up by syringes. From this point of view, I notice that my personality is breathing within each cell of my body.
