This painting uses dizzying brushstrokes, randomized letters and an assortment of symbols to describe the artist’s childhood move to Abilene, Texas. The work features blurred objects, evoking the confusion and isolation that comes from integrating into a new community—especially attempts to blend in while struggling to understand one’s own identity. As with all her work, chehayeb’s use of color highlights the emotions and innocence of childhood consciousness.

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.
