JOURNEY (article first published : 2005-09-16)

Jacki Bruniquel is a Durban based artist who completed her Bachelor of Arts in Fine Art at Michaelis, UCT in 1999. She spent the following five and a half years travelling around the world. Her wanderings took her from her London base to many different countries in Europe, Asia, Australasia, and Central America. She has since returned to South Africa to make this her permanent home.

This exhibition concerns itself with her personal journey and also the human journey. The work is “an exploration into the way we as human beings collect, treasure, conceal, reveal and repress the memories of our human experience”. She uses sentimental collected artefacts from her own physical and emotional travels, and reworks them by placing them within layers of colour, texture, shape and form. This is achieved by using a combination of photography, painting and collage.

Her process of deconstructing, recreating, adding, subtracting and layering is representational of the idea, that life is all about the journey and how it is this journey which creates the fabric of who we are.
