Vivid with mo­tion and color, Naomie Kremer’s im­agery is based in the real world, whether it’s na­ture, ar­chi­tec­ture, lan­guage and let­ter­forms, or the hu­man fig­ure. Her work comes from a wide range of sources and in­spi­ra­tions, in­clud­ing art his­tory, mu­sic, po­etry and lit­er­a­ture. Kremer speaks of it us­ing the some­what con­tra­dic­tory phrase “Ab­stract Sur­re­al­ism”. Trans­lat­ing her ex­pe­ri­ence through the lan­guage of ab­strac­tion, she cre­ates worlds that are more real than re­al­ity – “sur­real”. She brings the work to that ra­zor sharp edge be­tween ab­strac­tion (e.g. De Koon­ing, Joan Mitchell) and na­ture (e.g. Monet).

Al­ways seek­ing to push the bound­aries of her work, Kremer will present her first 3-D hy­brid, “Earth­born,” a bas-re­lief trans­la­tion of one of her paint­ings, carved by a CNC ma­chine dur­ing her artist res­i­dency at Power Art Cen­ter (PAC) in New Jersey in 2017. Ex­plor­ing “Time and Ma­te­ri­als”, which was the ti­tle of her talk at PAC, the work re­flects her on­go­ing multi-me­dia re­search in the way per­cep­tion is me­di­ated through time.

Com­pleted in late 2017, a 40-minute

ex­per­i­men­tal doc­u­men­tary “In the Be­gin­ning was De­sire” (with NY based film­maker David Gru­bin) ex­plores the story of Adam and Eve. Kremer’s work in con­ceiv­ing and cre­at­ing the multiple vis­ual di­rec­tions for the en­tire film—from He­brew text to an­i­ma­tion of the Gar­den of Eden—has closely in­formed the paint­ings and hy­brids in this ex­hi­bi­tion, par­tic­u­larly the hy­brid work Earth­born.

Paint­ing con­tin­ues to ground all of Kremer’s prac­tice, gen­er­at­ing in­for­ma­tion that re­ver­ber­ates through ev­ery medium she uses.
