Zohar Fraiman

'Vanille Marille'
120 x 135 cm
oil on canvas

Zohar Fraiman traverses through a multitude of epochs, making use of images that we absorb in reality as well as digitally. This ice cream dinner with floating Bamba, aka Erdnussflips, include a few classic cartoon heroes and sheroes, bits from retro advertisements and echoes of our digital glitches that we experience through our cellphones and online engagement. These childhood memories of the artist are visually all poured onto the canvas in one time capsule. 'Vanille Marille' is part of the series 'Blue Pill, Red Pill'- referring to the 1999 film The Matrix. The red pill and blue pill represent a choice between the willingness to learn a potent truth by taking the red pill or remaining in the contented experience of ordinary reality with the blue pill.

    About the artist

    Zohar Fraiman (Born in Jerusalem, Israel/lives and works in Berlin, Germany) examines the influence of digital communication on common gender stereotypes through her paintings. She explores how identities are formed and through which mechanisms they are reconstructed online via platforms such as Instagram, Tinder and TikTok. Using humour, Fraiman questions the practice of self-staging on the Internet and criticises the unnatural ways of expressing oneself in image-based networks. In her collage-like paintings– whether we are facing an illusion or reality – is not certain. Fraiman asks that you go behind the looking glass of the picture’s surface, to not apprehend it as a mirror of the world, but a world that parallels, magnifies and distorts the artificiality of self-exploitation in the age of social media.Her work has been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions internationally in a number of museums, galleries and institutions such as Galerie Russi Klenner, Berlin (2022), Priska Pasquer Gallery, Cologne (2021), The Museum Biennale, Krasnoyarsk (2021), Kunsthalle Trier (2021), Honold Fine Art, Bali (2019), Museum der bildenden Künste, Leipzig (2018), Petach Tikva Museum of Art, Israel (2018), Museion Atelier House, Bozen (2016) and Han Pin Art Museum, Hangzhou (2015). She is represented by Galerie Russi Klenner and Priska Pasquer Gallery.
