Raes Artist in Residence

A programme inaugurated by painter Stanislas Piechaczek in 2019, and then affirmed in 2020 by resort-wear label Commas, designer Richard Jarman. Each artist is hand selected by Raes and invited to create a collection of pieces from the artists medium, inspired by our hotel and home.

Raes alongside Perrier-Jouët are thrilled to announce our Artist in Residence for 2022 as Sydney-based artist, Eytan Messiah.

"Connecting with Raes has offered up this amazing opportunity to learn about the Watego family and their fascinating stories. These meaningful points in the history of this beautiful area have opened up rich perspectives to understand ourselves through and inspired a really exciting body of work." - Eytan Messiah, Raes Artist in Residence 2022

After his recent residency on property, using Raes as both his studio and home, Eytan has created a body of work inspired by Raes and Wategos surrounds. The collection will include a range of artworks alongside hand-made ceramics, as well as a mural within Penthouse 1.

The exclusive collection of works is now available for preview & purchase via our e-store.
