Daydreaming Girl Portraits
These Portraits by Erika Yamashiro are Lucid and Sublime

{SummaryTitle}

This set of illustrations by Japanese artist Erika Yamashiro captures the delicate features of the young female form within a fantasy-inspired dreamscape. The paintings portray young girls languorously wallowing within an Alice in Wonderland-esque fantasy world. The surrealist aspect of the surrounding landscape—over-sized mushrooms, the gathering of woodland critters—adds to a sense of blissful absorption rather than subconscious contemplation.

Erika Yamashiro beautifully uses soft colors and clearly defined features to elevate the sense of a delicate reverie. Looking at these paintings, one isn’t left trying to interpret a range of conflicting emotions and reactions, but rather is inclined to join in a momentary lapse from the present reality.

Articulate, gentle and soothing, these portraits by Erika Yamashiro are at once both sublime and enlightening.
