Caulfield Artist's Exhibition at the Convent Gallery

June 16, 2011 by  

The works of artist Yael Susan Rayman of Caulfield, Australia were recently on exhibition at Daylesford's Convent Gallery. Two of Rayman’s paintings on display reflected her travels to Italy last October, while her other pieces combined a number of modern styles such as figure work, which was prevalent in her display.

Rayman uses everyday objects that she finds in order to form her sculptures. She also creates acrylic and pastel paintings which are inspired by great artists like Matisse, Picasso and Miro. Rayman has been developing her artistic style since 1998, which is evident in her completion of VCE subjects that were all in the artistic field. She went on to study at Swinburne University with a major in fashion design and studio, and then finished a degree in fine arts at the Caulfield campus of Monash University. Her works were on exhibition in Daylesford in early June, and she will be travelling to Europe soon after for the 54th Venice Biennale so that she can gather ideas for future artworks.

Rayman chose an excellent venue for her exhibition at the Convent Gallery, which is well regarded for being one of the most beautiful Australian galleries. This gallery specialises in showcasing local, national and international art works that have been created in different styles and mediums, from stunning large photographs produced by a printing company to three dimensional sculptures made by hand.

The Convent Gallery features over eight exhibition spaces. The spaces are spread out within the building to give a diverse art experience to both collectors and visitors alike. The Convent Gallery was founded in 1991 as a leading gallery in the region. Since then it has developed a reputation as an important gallery in Australia that presents both modern and traditional artists. The gallery has even won several awards and is a popular tourist destination.
