In the series of portraits and landscapes presented at the exhibition, the artist documents her close surroundings, always from a personal point of view. At times she “cuts out” a piece from reality which serves her pictorial aims, at others she holds a dialogue with a painting from art history. She has always chosen a figurative style that is true to reality, while operating a selective choice in describing the details of that reality. The portraits reveal Zer’s great interest in the representative components of painting, in which she rethinks a pictorial truth.
