Born in 1978 - Morocco
biography under completion
Najoua is born in the middle of august of 1978 in Tangier (Morocco), where she is still living. After tourism studies, she becomes a travel agent. Her inclination for travelling, exploring countries and landscapes, led her to explore the ones of human beings through sophrology and energy field therapies studies.
Then came her discovery of painting, the painter in her, sourced like an impetus from the inner being who has found its way.
In its extreme sincerity Najoua’s journeying reminds me the far away echo of some Rûmi’s verses :
« Sur le Feu, comme un chaudron, cherche toi toi-même
Fait toi bouillir toi-même, et ne t’échappe pas partout
Son but est la pierre précieuse, va, cherche là
C’est par ce Feu que tu seras transmué en pierre précieuse »
Her painting itinerary is recent but it is already of a great variety, resembling the inner richness and the multitude which passes by this young woman.
Najoua leads her life as a quest to gather a vibrant world of traditions where sacred and modernity melt. Her paintings result in the temerity of forms where the light of letters slides inside her paintings sometimes revealing the discreet presence of all manifestations matrix.
The world language unifies and mirrors itself inside her paintings. Inside the rippling colors, to vibrations, hides her subtle love for the living and all the art sourced from it, inside the interweaving of curves and letters, the body keeps quiet and the spirit settles.
When Najoua is painting, all her body is suspended as in an intimate conversation. What her heart then sees, she gives it for us to see, her presence in the instant is so intense that it becomes as a mediation, as a go-between with what remains beyond ourselves.
Her hand then starts moving, and each line, each color, melts into a mirror of what is inside us and in a brief glimmer, degree by degree, revealing it as if suddenly our eyes were made wide open.
To stay near Najoua when she is painting is a precious moment where one is grazed, wrapped, led towards the heart of what inhabits her, and which is also ours.
Longing in the contemplation of her paintings is a privilege and puts us in touch with an essential sweetness, an amplitude of all our being, it opens the doors to the peace inside us, in that respect, I dare to say, that they carry an healing potential.
Her paintings are a gift from her great generosity and her complete sincerity.
I nourish the wish that you let yourself illuminate, embrace and overturn by her paintings.
