Light blue, ochre and hints of crimson gust and billow through a palimpsest of plaster in this work on canvas. Marks pulled by hand through the plaster, thick and cracking dynamically in areas, create a lively yet balanced composition.

Naim's artwork explores the creative psychological state, a meditative place through which inspiration emerges and guides her mark-making.

"...I find myself marking the plaster, ever so indirectly, with ancient like symbols, perhaps to substantiate a sense of authenticity and balance to the images within the work. I believe that their presence offers a sense of nobility, a stability..."

Born in 1942 and raised in Germany, Naim has lived most of her life in Canada and Israel working as a psychoanalytic psychotherapist. Naim has exhibited in Israel since 1995 and in Canada since 2014. Her work is held in private collections in Israel and Canada.
