Fairuz & Me|Fooling Around on March 11 AM

round you go

A few days ago I received a comment about the platform Fairuz is placed upon. I disagreed with what the person wrote even though initially I ultimately pictured her to be floating. I haven’t fully changed my mind but I’m tinkering with the idea of meeting the two ideas half-way, perhaps having her blend into the platform. I don’t know, I’ll see how it works out. Meanwhile, there’s no harm in having a little bit of fun and experimentation (which are two of art’s biggest components for me) in the process.

to achieve the blending, i had to turn the canvas on its head

adding a bit of perspective. many people were shocked at how small she looks on canvas. I wanted her to appear tiny and frail because that's how i saw her, no matter how big her voice was

  1. Hello Ghada,

    Interesting painting of Fayrouz. This is the first I see her on an artist canvas other than Mahmoud Zibawi’s canvases … beautiful work!
