Naima Neidre

Light Between Stones


Light Between Stones is Naima Neidre’s densest and “heaviest” watercolour painting in this exhibition. It resembles an underwater cave with an opening in one wall which allows in daylight that shines like a gemstone. Perhaps the jagged lines delimiting the watercolour into individual shapes are caused by the high absorbency of blotting paper, or maybe a fine brush was used to draw contour lines around the areas of dried paint… The independent effects of blue, green, pink and yellow tones are perfectly present and recognisable among their fused surroundings. In any case, it is a powerfully associative gem of a watercolour.
