B Chehayeb

b chehayeb’s paintings, prints and drawings reconstruct failed memories and depict sensory experiences warped by nostalgia, gender, language and cultural hybridity. The artist’s compositions feature semi-abstract fields of luscious texture, gesture and color. These fields are perforated by chehayeb’s growing lexicon of symbols—including cowboy boots, stars, horses, snakes, ladders, furniture and the letter ñ—allowing anecdotes, spaces and emotions to emerge.
