Square Portrait #3, 2016, acrylic on canvas, 30 x 30 cm

I have decided to include these  portraits in my upcoming exhibition at CAP. I like their modularity and feel they’ll compliment my polyhedra quite nicely. Read More

Holding Tight to the Week’s End } Some (including myself) may refer to my watercolors as being over-worked. I prefer to think of them as being anguished.

I was strict this time about filming the whole process start to finish. Music is Cough Coughing by Menomena. I use this song pretty often because its tempo matches mine.

Until Love } A Hundred and Seventy-Four

It’s funny how the purpose and drive behind creating these wonderful structures keeps shifting. They are no longer individual polyhedra, but each one a part of a whole. The idea is slowly evolving in my head. Who knows what I’ll settle on come January 2017. Will it still be about finding love? All I know is that what I’m looking for, what I need and want, has already changed.

new painting at CAP’s artist studio

cap08

This is how I left her last Sunday.

So I have officially started work on my upcoming exhibition, tentatively titled Until Love, at the Contemporary Art Platform in Kuwait, January 2017. To paint my first four large scale paintings, they are kindly allowing me to use their ‘artist’s studio’. I’ll do the rest of the paintings at home. Read More

new watercolor sketchbook } twin and a half

When I traveled to London last April I decided to keep my watercolor sketchbook and paints behind. That was a mistake, because as soon as I had a bit of time alone in my hotel room I got the urge to paint. So I think by now you can guess the rest: trip to Green & Stone’s, stock up on a new sketchbook (larger format), paints (this time Russian), and paintbrushes.

In this post I’m including two watercolors I published previously. Read More

Happy Birthday, Anna Dora! A great way to kick off this trip is cocktails at Cahoots with Anna and her friends. Of course Anna can’t help being Anna here and I love her for it.

This trip has been packed. For someone who has made it her mission this time to ‘chill’, I’ve done a lot, met new friends and caught up with old ones. This sojourn has, however, been a bit of a challenge, at moments even regretful…I don’t know why…well, I do but I won’t tell, for various reasons. Funny enough, though, it has also been strewn with pleasurable moments, in all senses of the word, and this is what I like to celebrate. Read More

My friend Deena introduced me to the coolest photo editing app ever, Image Blender, and I’ve been playing with it ever since. Here are some images and a video I made using the app last night and this morning. Read More

playing with the machina

Machina, me and headgear. This photo was arranged and filtered by Deena.

Deena ‘Machina’ Qabazard and I have been planning a playdate for ages. This morning we finally got together for a morning of creativity, gossip and general antics. We sipped our tea and ate our oranges, almonds and dates like good girls and made these funky fascinators. Every human should be able to wear one of these without being gawked at. If it were a world of Deena’s and mine, then they would be. Read More

Until Love } A Hundred and Thirty-Eight

I started this endeavor a few months ago. I’m still obsessively creating these little structures and I won’t stop until I find love. Here I’ve added a bonus session from this afternoon. It’s getting more challenging as these polyhedra take over my living space. Also, setting up these shoots is literally a pain in the neck. Clearing up is worse. But the spectacle is completely worth it. Read More
