until love } four hundred and seventy five

  Every now and then I consolidate two categories into one. I felt that it was apt to merge my journal entry with my Until Love project on this post.

the poly’s bid a grand farewell to CAP

What kind of a poly-mistress would I be if I didn’t allow my polyhedra to leave with somewhat of a bang? Naturally there was lots of play involved in packing my beloved ‘stars’, but lots of sweat too! I want to thank my new friend and sister-in-arms Azza for helping me out this morning.

until } reem algharabali’s photos

Months of work came to fruition last Wednesday with the opening of my latest show Until at the Contemporary Art Platform. It was a crazy night, a reunion of sorts. And what better way to share the event with those who couldn’t make it than with pictures. This first batch was taken by my very dear friend Reem Algharabali.

new painting } ice-cream and a ladybug

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?

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 […]

new painting } eve to eve

I started this painting before my trip to London beginning of this month and let it marinate for a while until two days ago. I have made a promise to never end a painting until I love it, and I’m crazy about this one.

the reincarnation of eve

I have been following Laura Bevan on Instagram for a while now. As I do with many artist friends I’ve ‘met’ on Instagram, I like a lot of her posts/artwork. But it’s her dolls I fell in love with. Because I’m always up for a collaboration, I asked her if she would create an Eve for me, […]
