The last of my #100daysnastywomen is back up...I've missed the company of these beautiful women. Because this project was inspired by the #metoo movement, it makes me think of something I read recently by @amberheard, "Silence is complacency...my sexuality, my femininity in whatever way I want to express it, is mine." On the radio the past few days the local police have been urging parents to talk to their teens about what they share online as it can all have negative and long term consequences. Apparently that even applies to what each of us follows, likes, and comments on and even snapchat has admitted (quietly) that anything shared doesn't actually disappear as they originally claimed. It can be difficult to recognize & understand healthy boundaries. A portrait painter said it perfectly, I think, when he discussed how even a simple selfie can appear voyeuristic and make a viewer feel very uncomfortable, that there are ways to feel beautiful & strong without sacrificing who you truly are. Anyway, looking at these strong, beautiful, inspiring women in my studio helps me to feel stronger, more beautiful, and inspiring, too. I really like that.
Exhibition by Riyad Nemah at Boushari Gallery.Riyad is an Iraqi painter currently living in Lebanon. His inspiration is closely related to his awareness of the brevity of our lives, and the desire to leave behind a memory. But these ‘memories’ as he calls them are those of anonymous characters that he randomly meets. A singer, a happy old man, represented in orange, a painter with his face filled by colorful scratches , children going to school and so on. Figures that often are fused with the walls , walls he liked to watch as a child growing up in Bagdad , walls that told him old stories of the people that once sat, stood, or passed near them. The exhibit is currently on until January 31.
