a blast from the very near past } a behind-the-scenes look at pgb3

Here are some PGB3 preparation pictures that I didn’t print with the first onslaught of PGB3 photos. I just figured that people had ODed on the show. So a few behind-the-scenes shots taken by Faisal Al Fouzan who was kind enough to come and promote my exhibition through his brilliant photos. There are a couple […]

Every year, a vital part of my PGB exhibitions are my brother Mohammed’s photos and Mohammed himself. He flew in early from Bahrain to be at the exhibition, and that means the world to me. Thanks, Mo.

pgb3 perspectives } ahmad al shammeri

Above is a series of photos sent to me by another pgb3 guest Ahmad Al Shammeri. His photos made me smile because a. I thought that I had seen every single angle the works could be photographed from and b. the series includes photos of people who are really dear to me (my brothers Mohammed […]

Art Musings by Ayesha Kamal

After every pgb event, I enjoy getting feedback from my guests, whether verbal or photographic. This, however, is a first: a written documentation of the evening by a guest who emailed me a couple of days ago with her thoughts, feelings and a dream about a murderer lurking behind a wall of tapestries. Here is […]

a big fat thank you and a whole lotta instagrams!

Well, the show has finally come and gone. I want to thank every single person who helped me with this show whether setting up (Yasmine, Alex, William, Ehsan), taking care of sales (Jana, Yousef, Yasmine), giving me moral support (my family, friends and fellow Intagrammers), getting desperately lost and giving up (Thuraya), wishing me good […]

Last Chair

  The last chair is finally complete! You may have noticed that my posts have not been as regular as usual. The reason for this is that my main computer slipped into a coma and now my laptop’s decided to conk out on me. So I’ve been using my handy little phone.

Chair

I’ve been keen to start on the furniture bit of my upcoming exhibition and I finally got round to it today! My plan is to have four chairs with the theme ‘red ball’. It’s going to be fun and as always, a learning experience.

tapestry } grandmother, daughter and child

I am so incredibly behind schedule. There is so much to do outside the actual artwork itself, it’s not even funny. I’m anxious, worried, nauseous…and I’ve just used ellipses. I know it will work in the end, but at the expense of my mental and physical health over the next few weeks.

an apology

This is an apology to you, my PGB. I feel I have neglected you in the past few weeks. It’s just that I’ve been quite busy with something I feel is a little repetitive, and I don’t want to tire you. And here’s the proof.

t-shirts three and four on august 2nd

I’m all out of T-shirts. I have to replenish my supply soon. The exhibition is coming up and I’ve got billions of things to do. But I’m starting to get that feeling that I’m on track rather than lost. And that fills me with renewed excitement for my projects.

postcards and feet

This is the progression of my postcards over the past few weeks. And in true Instagram fashion, my feet just had to be in the shots.

meem’s t

A couple of weeks ago I got an e-mail from Kuwaiti fashion doyen (a more apt term would be ‘fashion scientist’) Maha Alessa. She wrote that she was in the mood to wear Eve. The sentiment was a little bizarre which was right up my alley as far as sentiments go. So I thought, let […]
