the flower in her stomach
Posted on August 23, 2013 1 Comment
This was quite a production, from putting on the dress, laying out the black curtains and attaching my phone to a beam above. I was also a little distracted by my yearning for a loved one and a book that brought back memories of bygone days. The song is ‘Flirting With You All My Life’ […]
eve in a bottle

Today is cleaning day. But I can’t be bothered to clean. I’m feeling particularly downhearted and extremely weak. So I resorted to what I do best to console my spirit.
block print #2 } lino face

I’ve found the technique I’m comfortable with and I’ve just started to refine it. I love the serendipitous moments I get with these prints. Any time you have results that you are not totally in control of but which are interesting is a bonus!

Don’t worry. I’ll get tired of it soon enough.
kiss & cut } the scroll

This is my ‘countdown’ scroll. I’ll be working on this one perhaps until my works are due to be hung. It’s going to be fun.
the traveling tap } current location } barcelona

AJ, AJ, AJ. He just took the tap experience up a few notches. He and his partner in crime Carles (one shoots, the other hones) keep outdoing themselves with every photo. Funny thing is, I was in public every time I saw one of their posts. The first two times my jaw dropped (not literally […]

preparing for an exhibition in march } number one
Posted on December 9, 2012 5 Comments
I have a show coming up at the Tilal Gallery in March and I have just one work done. I think I can say with all confidence that I am in deep poopoo. I have no title for this exhibition, nor a specific direction. I’m currently working on the second piece and thinking: maybe I […]
the traveling tap
Posted on November 22, 2012 1 Comment
Last October I got an idea for an Instagram series: send my tapestries to different people around the world to be Instagrammed. Something about the idea of letting go of my work, eventually to total strangers four, five, six degrees separated from me, both enthralled me and terrified me. But I had to let go […]
just not the same without my mac
Posted on November 18, 2012 5 Comments
On October 12th, a little over three weeks before my PGB3 exhibition, my computer fell into a coma. I died. And after that I took it to the Mac doctor who gave me a bleak prognosis: the logic board needs to be replaced, 3-4 weeks. I died again. But like a phoenix (and thanks to […]
a visit from faisal the f
Posted on October 25, 2012 Leave a Comment
I find superlatives pointless. They’re hyperbolic and highly arguable. But I’m going to say this with complete conviction: Faisal Al Fouzan, aka Faisal the F, is the best Instagrammer this country has to offer. I am, mind you, prepared to be convinced otherwise. I just don’t see it happening. This morning on a visit to […]
homes | noor alzabin & lali al-sayer
Posted on August 14, 2012 Leave a Comment
I visited Noor Alzabin’s elegant home this morning to take some photos of her new acquisition, my painting ‘Girl Not Alone’. I think, however, I ended up taking more photos of Noor, Lali and their excitable doggy Balthazar!
t-shirts for my upcoming exhibition
Posted on July 31, 2012 1 Comment
I have finally started work on these t-shirts for my next PrettyGreenBullet exhibition in November. This is one, nineteen to go. Initially I wanted to paint twenty-one but have settled on twenty. I’d love to do more but I have to be realistic about time.
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.
packing for dar.nur } bye-bye, girls

My paintings were finally transported to dar.nur this morning. I have to say I was bubbling with energy, really happy they were going to a better place! Be good, girls. I’ll be visiting every now and then x
