Dyani

Dyani, (Annie BENDAYAN) a painter and an art teacher, was born in 1955 and lived with her family in France. In 1975 she immigrated to Israel in 

 

order to study the sciences at Hebrew University. She also studied architecture . 

 

Annie's passion for art began early, but she reserved twenty years of her life for 

 

her family which included raising seven children and twenty one grandchildren.

 

During those years, however, Annie retained a constant relationship with art by working as an art teacher in Israel.

 

Her love of art and painting started at a young age where she explored 

 

different ways of expressing her creativity. Her artistic diversity and ability 

 

to work with various media and styles has proven to be a great asset to her 

 

creative career. Although she enjoyed architecture and design, she constantly longed for new 

 

challenges and creative freedom. So in 2000 she ventured on her own 

 

and made a career of what had, until then, been limited to merely a passionate 

 

hobby…painting.

 

Initially she chose to paint in a classic impressionist style. However, even in this classic style her use of vibrant colors is what often strikes people at first. The colors

 

she uses are carefully chosen, exuding a strong presence, as well as, adding a symbolic aspect to her 

 

work. The passionate reds, pure range of blues and warm yellows 

 

are seared into the viewer’s memory, leaving them emotionally charged. The viewer will 

 

lose themselves in the warmth and comfort of a familiar place. The paintings 

 

convincingly depict the naive impressions and memories left in the 

 

mind, perhaps years after visiting a specific locale. Her unique style and execution bring to 

 

mind images of great frescoes on old crumbling walls. The unusual use of 

 

mixed media and subject matter, are a perfect marriage.

 

Her unique paintings are bold, vibrant and dramatic. Compelling 

 

compositions and beautiful light are incorporated into each painting or perhaps a 

 

breathtaking still life. Her works are absolutely stunning.  

 

As her passion grew, Annie began to dedicate more and more time to her love.

 

“…Painting is communication, and the viewer has to understand what is being 

 

communicated"…

 

says DYANI, explaining her philosophy of art.

 

“…It should reflect G-d's beauty and creation".

 

 

Gradually, Dyani gave in to the influences of 

 

fauvism and cubism. Her desire for challenge led her to explore the borders 

 

between abstract and figurative painting. Mastering an excellent technique 

 

and taking on an inner journey she introduced 

 

characters into her work and decided to take off in an imaginary word. 

 

Discarding conventionalism, in a world of dreams where rules and disorder 

 

combine she gives way to freedom of expression, creation and invention 

 

enhanced by her artistic maturity. With the full sketch in mind, Dyani 

 

works her canvas, composes it, assembles and equilibrates forms and 

 

colors. Working with either abundant or almost transparent matter and 

 

texture, she always remains faithful to her emotions. In a world of color and 

 

substance, the light seems to vibrate from behind the canvas. Some will 

 

retain the festive atmosphere, others will be carried into a deep 

 

meditation...free to follow her dreams.

 

Free to choose her medium, (oil or 

 

watercolors), she selects her brushes or palette knife, which she 

 

manipulates with ease. The diversity of gestures and implements allows 

 

her a certain invention. More figurative and impressionist than anything 

 

else, she at times flirts with abstraction, influenced solely by the flow of 

 

her passion. From a precise line to a rapid stroke of the palette knife; from 

 

transparency to thick opacity; from detail to suggestion, she is guided by 

 

her intuition only. A universe offered, in apparent simplicity, awakens joy 

 

of life in those who would but grasp it.

 

DYANI an artist painter finds painting to be a source of inexhaustible inspiration.

 

Her paintings have an emotional quality that can be felt as well as seen.
