Zohar Fraiman, born in Jerusalem 1987, responds in her current work to the classic Jewish folklore story of The Dybbuk. According to this folklore, a Dybbuk is a restless soul or a demon that embodies a human being. These paintings relate to the belief that an imposing spirit can have power over another figure.The paintings of Fraiman are characterised by a particular painting technique, which can both hide and/or reveal the motifs in the painting thus creating an oneiric atmosphere. The artist lives and works in Berlin.
