The affiliation of two-dimensional objects and their
three-dimensional projection is the main topic of
Zipora Rafaelov’s relief-like pictures and installations.
Common objects which are reduced to their basic features are the moulds that reoccur in all her works.
Light and shade are a prominent issue in the realization of her figurative forms to space-consuming image-sculpture.
The deliberate use of white and black reinforces the silhouette-like character of the objects which only gain their depth perception by light.
The works of the artist converge to the traditions of paper cuts and shadow play, they offer a repertoire for stories.
