Incised scaffolding of lines, scratches and dents delineated by pigment in reflective gold, ochre black and Payne's gray, emerge from a layered plaster ground. The dynamic, burnished surface with suggestive marks, brings to mind ancient fresco walls. 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 Canada since 2014. Her work is held in private collections in Israel and Canada.
