Naen

Having graduated with a degree oriented towards international commerce, Naen began a long career in management and marketing expertise with large companies in France. Her affection for the arts, and in particular painting, made itself known rather early on, but it was only at the beginning of the 2000s that she decided to begin her pictorial work.

Resorting to her Cartesian mind on a daily basis to carry out her professional tasks, yet on the contrary, Naen calls upon her intuition and spontaneity when producing her canvases. Equipped with paintbrushes, knives, fabric or even her fingers, the artist proceeds by affixing and juxtaposing powerfully coloured pictorial layers – made up on acrylic paints associated with Indian ink and sometimes enriched with marble powder. This technique allows the artist to play with the effects of materials, light, transparency and thus reveals new nuances whilst removing others.

In 2012, Naen gave up her wage-earning job to take over the management of a communications agency in the Var department. At the same time, she pursued her painting activity at home in her house built in La Londe-les-Maures. Profoundly moved by the work of the painter and engraver Zao Wou-Ki (1920-2013), she goes around exhibitions to feed off of the most diverse colours and forms. Moreover, Naen has a very demanding eye on her work, continually seeking to reach perfection both in the harmony of colours and the balance of the final composition. Thought “like dreams where everyone sees what he wants to see”, her abstract works offer the viewer the opportunity to claim each canvas for himself by projecting his own imagination into it.
