Jacky Lloyd

Jacky Lloyd is a sculptor working principally in marble, both three dimensional and in bas-relief. Centred upon the human body or body-suggestive forms (her boat series) , she delves for metaphors which tap in to our deeper psychological experiences. She sees her work as a visual form of poetry in which illusive feelings and concepts are brought to focus, memories invoked, the seeding to an inner conversation. Past working themes have explored individual and archetypal human experience within broader sociopolitical currents, evoking the personal in the universal and vice-versa. Her current work moves into a quieter, more intimate expression of the body as poetic language. This vulnerable yet powerful presence of our physical selves is a reminder that the body is a seat and a source of the sacred. With a BA Fine Arts from the University of Stellenbosch , and a background in studio jewellery, Jacky began making sculpture in stone in 2006. She has had works selected for national juried exhibitions of contemporary art, and held her first solo exhibition in 2022. She has sculpture works in the Hollard Collection Contemporary Art (Villa Arcadia, Johannesburg) and the Spier Arts Trust Collection.
