Statement

      d’Arci Bruno began her career in the arts at the age of 13, drawing a trapper for the cover of Fur Trader magazine in Washington State. She attended the San Francisco Art Institute, receiving the Ivan Majdrakoff Award for outstanding painting in 2007, as well as a merit-based scholarship in 2008. d’Arci has worked as a muralist, set designer, costumer, and portrait artist. Her work unites a variety of styles to create graphically and emotionally powerful imagery. 

 "The act of transformation is central to my art making practice.  I am fascinated with how an object that means one thing can, with shifts of perspective and applied technique, take on completely different meanings. When the thing achieves a life of its own, gaining personality and developing character, then I am ready to release it into the world.

  For me, it is not so much about the object that is produced, but the process – the tactile and messy act of creation – that fuels my desire. It’s the sheer enjoyment of one thing becoming another, while playing with different mediums and materials, that sparks my curiosity, inspiring me to make new work.

  My process is rooted in day-to-day activities. Drawn to the odd and unusual, I am fascinated by the strange, random way things interconnect. I am compelled to archive these remarkably interactive occurrences through my own particular, eccentric, filter.

  I have a quirky sense of humor and eclectic style. This leads me to use bright colors and bold lines, working with a decidedly skewed perspective. I see art everywhere; I use everything as a medium and I will do anything with it. My work has been described as deceptively cheery and optimistic – and it is. But it also something different; at the heart of it there is loneliness. The unbalanced eyes that occur frequently in my pieces evoke a sense of both confrontation and longing – placing the viewer simultaneously inside and outside the work."

 To Whom It May Concern:

 This is a letter of recommendation for d’Arci Bruno.

 

 d’arci is a woman multiple skills and talents and one of the hardest workers I have known. Her position as Site Manager and Gallery Director at Rhythmix Cultural Works required managing a complex space and schedule of programming and rentals.   Her skills range from the physical upkeep of the space, to installing gallery exhibitions, to the administrative work of overseeing contracts and coordinating the logistics of private, public events and classes.

 In addition to this d’Arci is a talented visual artist with a great deal of creative energy that can be applied to any situation.

 Sincerely,

 Janet Koike, Founder, Rhythmix Cultural Works
