DOUBLE EXXPOSURE

Fhatuwani Mukheli’s emergence as a fine artist reflects a momentous individuation; one that inextricably draws from his personal reservoir of memory, trauma and existential reckoning. The return to art as a consistent practice, first appearing in his life as a child, sees Fhatuwani alchemising his experience with dyslexia through his deepening relationship to graffiti, and resolving family dynamics as he translates his exceptional grasp of form learned behind the lens as a photographer, to mixed medium depictions of his inner-world. This therapeutic value of art is innate to the human experience, and his first solo-show Double Exxposure expresses these dichotomies and dualities of life in a reflective culmination of Fhatuwani’s recent residency.

In Fhatuwani’s lived experience, that of being a twin, a photographer, and now as an artist - the name itself acts as a re-contextualisation of the photographic term, as Fhatuwani broadens all manner of meaning in his life through his practice. Fhatuwani seeks, through his art, to invite people into more of the complexities and nuances of his personhood as a human being, and in doing so conveys a vulnerability
with his audience yet to be shared previously in his prolific role in South African creativity.
