Zamir is influenced by landscapes, the encounter between sunlight and buildings and the urban nature surrounding her everyday life.

The images in her paintings are sometimes drawn by observation and photographs and sometimes from memory.

Her selection of medium also varies between the works in relation to the painting’s subject.

For example, the use of a carton due to its tendency to wear out and destruct easily, in order to mimic the decay of the old buildings.
