two new paintings } silence of noise | the hardness (and softness) of sex

I created The Hardness (and Softness) of Sex a few weeks ago in an attempt to deconstruct (and possibly destruct) Eve. I wanted to experiment with unfamiliar shapes while further exploring my curiosity about colors and their relationship with each other. But also, it was a reaction to a book I had just finished: Resistance: […]

A year ago I bought a gorgeous ring from my friend jewelry designer Sylvette Blaimont. This painting is an homage to it and the wonderful Sylvette.

This painting started with the eponymous ice-cream and ladybug. I was babysitting my nephew Khaldoun, had three empty canvases prepped for painting and thought: why not let him play a little?
new painting } the eves and thilo
Posted on October 23, 2016 3 Comments
I finished this painting around ten days ago, and instead of photographing myself with it as I usually do with my finished paintings, I wanted to share that fun with a few of the special women in my life. Thanks to my sister Yasmine for thinking about asking her colleague photographer Thilo Mayer to take […]
new painting } eves at the forum

I started this painting in late July, and until I finished it two days ago, it had been driving me mad. For the longest time I kept denying that the painting felt wrong, that I even hated it. I put it away for weeks, in avoidance and resentment for the subjects it portrayed. It’s the worst feeling […]

For the past couple of days I’ve had a nagging itch for being on an island. For now, I’ll just fantasize about it.

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.

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.

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.

new painting } d’s message in her hand

I just got back from London. There, I almost met a man. This man presented me with a beautiful face and an online personality so compatible with mine. And I filled in the rest to create a new muse for myself. He has no idea how much he has inspired me to paint like a curious child […]
