Smoky Kawaii - Yoshitomo Nara, Art Gallery of WA

At Claire's suggestion, I visited the Yoshitomo Nara exhibition Reach Out to The Moon, Even If We Can’t this week.

Nara is best known for his sculptures and drawings of big-headed girls whose expressions denote both cuteness (kawaii) and darkness.

The subject matter here is Nara's reaction to the Fukushima disaster of 11 March 2011.

Here's the exhibition's draw card - Girl with eyepatch.

Some of the large sculptures.

A sketch for the sculptures.

Some of the drawings.
