Student Profile: Eilat Rabin Rein

How long have been at TBSSS? 
I started at Tom Bass early 2005. I remember how excited I was when Tom Bass looked at my portfolio and said that I have a sensitivity for figurative forms and a good eye. My first work was based on Henry Moore’s “Majesty Couple” and I turned it into my “Communication“. At that time I relocated to Sydney and was occupied with communication in a new culture and into my new family.


Where do you travel from each week?
For the first 10 years I travelled from beautiful Rose Bay. Today I’m not far – I travel from Waterloo.

What do you do when you’re not sculpting?
I’m doing a lot of sculpting with wax at my home studio. I have also been doing some painting and lately enjoying digital media for drawing and planning my ongoing project “The Invisible People“.I travel back to Israel and New York once a year, updating myself with art. When in Israel I work in a studio close to home and continue with my work of art. I do participate in group exhibitions in Israel.

I study French to keep up with my daughter-in-law.

What made you take up sculpting?
My development as a sculptor started in the 80’s. I started as a potter and developed into sculptor since then. In 2000 I turned sculpting into my main artistic activity. I have a BA in History of Art. Art is my passion.

Tell us about what you’re working on currently…
As I mentioned, currently I work in alabaster stone and am loving it. I continue to work with wax, on my on going project (“The Invisible People“) – people in society that we are more comfortable not noticing or ignoring. My third work is based on image from Chagall’s painting.”The Lovers“. I have exhibited in the past in group exhibitions in Sydney and Melbourne and an individual exhibition in Melbourne.
