This painting depicts a memory of a night at a skate park, evoking the intense emotions of children attempting to fit in while others are left out. Featuring various shades of green, textural marks and fleeting objects, this work is reminiscent of both color field painting and gestural abstraction. The painting also represents the artist’s internal thoughts and anxieties, flattening them into a dialogue between artist and canvas. 

b chehayeb's work explores the reconstruction of memories and sensations warped by nostalgia, gender, language and cultural hybridity. The artist perforates her compositions' semi-abstract fields of luscious texture and color with an ever-growing lexicon of symbols—including cowboy boots, stars, horses, snakes, ladders, furniture and the letter ñ.
