In the Studio with Ghada Amer: Tools

“These are my stencils. I use them a lot for work. I’m working now on a series of word paintings. I’m working on feminist quotes—from men or women—that empower women but don’t critique men.

All painters use different paintbrushes for different effects. It is very personal; I cannot explain with words.

I like all my tools on the walls. It’s very practical for me, and it looks nice.”— Ghada Amer
