Secret Stories by Jacqueline Bozon

Beauty is created by those who dare see it.  Just like cultures all have their own rituals and stories, each one of us owns our personal story in life.  Why we travel and steer clear of certain paths in life: it’s all about choices we make, each turn we decide to take or set course in the opposite direction. These different experiences are so unique, leave their traces to shape an energetic route, a testimony of our own path.

Jacqueline Bozon uses all her experiences, connections and observations and molds them into a colourful and playful field of lines.  She communicates in colours, a universal language easy to comprehend, one which lends itself to various translations, too. Think of the colour red: it may stand for romance, a passionate love, warmth, yet for someone else it can also represent the colour of fear and danger.

The top layer, usually what we see first, compares to an initial impression we get.  For many this is plentiful. Yet when you take your time to dig deeper, so many layers will come to surface as the artwork exposes itself completely. Our own reflections and experiences will start to blend in.  We meet, get to know each other and start to trust, which releases the most beautiful stories. It’s a book, full of surprises and exciting to read, only you don’t read it, you live it.

The work mirrors the artist’s vision on life in an adventurous and colourful combination of lines. Jacqueline’s technique is as mysterious as it is perfection: multiple layers of paint are carefully separated by the resin she applies. This creates an exceptional image of perspective.

“The art is to see without thinking and not thinking what you see.”
