Naveh employs an interesting medium to express herself, plaster spackle on wooden panels. Large open spaces give new meaning to the power of simplicity in composition. Women engrossed in thought, caught in a soft simple pose, highlighted by a background of common objects. Naveh's intimate and private subjects are inspired from everyday life.
