Zipora Rafaelov’s relief-like pictures and installations address the affiliation of two-dimensional objects and their three-dimensional projection. Common objects which are reduced to their basic features reoccur in all her works. The works of the artist converge to the traditions of paper cuts and shadow play and therefore offer a generous repertoire for stories to be told.
Zipora Rafaelov (*1954, Beer-Sheva, Israel) studied Journalism and Economics in Tel Aviv before she decided to attend the Institute of Beau-Art in Bat-Yam, Israel. In 1986, she received her degree as “Meisterschüler” at the Arts Academy in Düsseldorf, Germany. In 2014 she won the art award “Rheinischer Kunstpreis”.
