Artwork Description

Acrylic Paint on stretched canvas, ready to hang.

Signed with a certificate of authenticity.

This still life is nostalgic painting in which I reflect on my childhood as an Arab-Australian. Summer afternoons were sometimes spent looking forward to one of my mum's dishes in which lemon, olive oil and garlic were staple ingredients. In this painting tall gum trees peek in through the lace and a bunch of natives decorates the table where someone has been preparing a meal. Two iconic cans of Cortas Hummus stand on the table.

The painting is titled after a poem by Palestinian poet By Naomi Shihab Nye which starts:
"In the corner of every Arab kitchen,
an enormous plastic container
of olives is waiting for another meal."

This painting was produced during my Incubarte Residency in early 2019 and was part of my exhibition Malike/Queen of the Home at Bankstown Arts Centre.
