new painting } zeri girls

A week ago I got a call from my dear friend Laila Al-Hamad, letting me know that she was going to put on display, along with her Zeri handicrafts, a painting I did for her a while back, Drinks & Cigarettes. This was for an upcoming event, Kuwait Modern Heritage, to be held at Al Shaheed […]

eve, me & the polyhedra

A few days ago I trekked to Muji at the Avenues to restock on color origami paper. Of course, as expected, they were out. But I found these square notepads with ecru-colored paper, ready and perfect for being stamped and folded. The new polyhedra are smaller, which I actually like. And I don’t think that Muji Kuwait […]

the well-dressed, well-coifed bulgarian lady who occasionally cheated

Listen as you watch: When I started this picture earlier this evening, I was stuck. I knew I wanted to put something on this woman’s head, I just wasn’t sure what. A little ways in I posted my progress on Instagram. Minutes later, my friend Lubna Saif Abbas left a comment: I imagine her with a set of […]

for instagram

Every now and then I put a little effort into an Instagram shot. This isn’t perfect, but the thing I like about Instagram is its ‘homemade’ aspect, and I’m a homemade kind of girly.

video illustration } one week on

I want to cry. I started this video a week ago. This morning I had twenty seconds. I still have twenty seconds. But my PowerPoint crashed and I lost fifty frames. I want to cry. But I won’t.

new painting on a friday morning

Sometimes I just want to paint. It was one of those days (yesterday) that I actually went through my storeroom rummaging for stretched canvases. I found this one. There was a painting of an apple on it, which wasn’t pretty enough to render it worthy of not being painted over. This morning I finished the painting. I’m not completely ecstatic […]

new ‘painting’ } the centerfold I

The closest thing I’ve ever come to feeling in love without being in love is this. I’m excited, giddy, nervous and I’m laughing out loud because I’m happy. I wasn’t sure where I was going with this one but I think it’s finally worked and I’ll use it for my upcoming exhibition. Which means I […]

new painting } five companions } nearly complete

    I’m so nearly done with this one, which I started a few weeks ago. I’m just not completely happy with it. One particular companion. I also think that I’ll paint five additional companions on another canvas. I’d like this to be a multi-paneled work.

because i have to stop thinking

Have you ever thought so much it drove you insane? I think I just reached that point; the point where I no longer want things to make sense because they’re just not going to. Ever. Not as long as I’m thinking about them. I feel I’ve reached a level of madness where I just want […]

kiss & cut } the last one } scroll (after)

So I finally had my panic dream this morning. I dreamt that my show was tonight and I hadn’t even brought my works to the gallery, which had changed without anyone telling me. My show was in an hour and I hadn’t even selected my outfit. And I didn’t have a car and everyone who […]

an apology

This is an apology to you, my PGB. I feel I have neglected you in the past few weeks. It’s just that I’ve been quite busy with something I feel is a little repetitive, and I don’t want to tire you. And here’s the proof.
