girls explore } eves discover caitley symons textile & design

Christmas time is upon us, it’s snowing on prettygreenbullet and I’m in the mood for a bit of shopping. As much as I’ve always appreciated hand-crafted items, my last trip to London, specifically the Contemporary Crafts & Design Fair in Chelsea, intensified my desire for all things handmade with passion and love. So in the spirit of Christmas […]

uk days } part one

I am finding being in the UK rather difficult this time. I don’t know if it’s my long stay (two weeks) when I’m missing my kids already, Naz leaving tonight or the loneliness I’m feeling without *him*. It’s not like I hadn’t been here before without him in my life, but somehow it’s sadder this […]

stories of eves } creating eves

I’m creating thirty eves that I’m going to be sending off to a select number of individuals who I feel are going to take an active part in her story. Of course it’s an arduous process of drawing, cutting (hate the cutting!) and writing details on the back. Then there’s the posting which I actually look forward to. […]

girls explore } the old monkey

Of course I had to take my little Eves to the countryside with me. Actually, these three were created in the cottage. I guess I can call them my Hadleigh girls. Or my Old Monkeys. This is a tour of the cottage through their playful antics.

Eve Shreds the Note|From Nothing to an Angry Bride

This is a video I made with my son, Khaled, from footage I had taken of myself painting Eve Shreds the Note. Actually, he did most of the work; I just sat there trying to be helpful but ended up hindering his efforts to get on with it. Music by (in order): Elbow/The Birds, Aimee […]

Stories of Eves Exhibition Photos|Mohammed Alkandari

And another opening passes by. I wish I could have enjoyed it more but I was (and still am) in the midst of nursing what feels like a stomach virus again. For someone who takes pleasure in food, that sucks. I hope, however, that for those of you who didn’t attend, you enjoy the photos […]

Ghadah Alkandari|Stories of Eves

Ten days left. Or is it nine? I’m starting to feel a bit of the buzz I usually get a few weeks before any exhibition. The butterflies I usually reserve for opening day. That’s when I can’t sit still and it’s best to avoid me. Cross the bridge for a map to Gallery Tilal.

Photographing Eves on a Monday

          Jana came in this morning to photograph the complete Stories of Eves collection. I tried to set up the studio the best way I could to achieve maximum efficiency. I love to feel that I can win over time, so I’m always finding ways to reduce it. So much that […]

eve passes a note

I think she’s finished. I put a note in her hand because her expression and intent gaze reminded me of how as children, in class, we would focus on the teacher’s face while subtly flicking the note to its intended recipient.

Gallery Tilal|Stories of Eves|Six Eves Play Hide-and-Go-Seek

As a child, I always played hide-and-go-seek with a little trepidation and absolutely no sense of fun and game. How could anyone enjoy a game where you had to hide in a lonely, isolated place while someone sought you out? It’s far from pleasant. As for the seeker, how terrifying and just as existentially creepy. […]

Struggle in the Studio|Ghadah Vs. Eve

Two of the three paintings I’m currently working on are giving me hell. If I could, I’d punch them both and get it over with. I’m struggling to get them out of the rut they’re in. But I know we’ll all pull through. Trust and patience.
