(b.1942, Germany) Naim’s large-scale abstract paintings are monochromatic, tactile, and highly personal in nature. Working with plaster on wood, Naim opts to use her hands to apply ink, chalk, charcoal, graphite and pigments to the ‘breathing body’ of the painting surface. The result is organic, both in temperament and process. Shapes and lines are continually buried and excavated in order to reveal the dark and light, the visible and invisible.
