About the Work

Incised curved lines and dents delineated by pooled pigments of reflective gold and Payne's gray emerge from a plaster palimpsest surface on wood panel. The suggestive marks in the dynamic, burnished ground soaked in light ochre brings to mind ancient, fossilized spines, bones and shells. 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.
