Kiyoko Lerner

I love art that looks very innocent and old fashioned. Something that is soft and calming, and maybe not too deep in meaning. Although Kiyoko Lerner's work probably does have a deeper meaning, a lot of it looks like it was pulled straight out of a 19th century book of fairy tales or an ancient copy of Tarzan ... something like that.
She uses watercolors, and takes advantage of the imprecise qualities of the medium to give all her work a very intimate and sophomoric look.

She often paints these rather large pieces, and is known to actually trace characters from old books onto her work (I guess that explains why it looks like an old children's book sometimes ... ) Wow would I like something she has done ...
