From the exhibition description:
The Alchemist is a group exhibition of artists whose practice includes alternative processes and the transformation of raw materials in unexpected ways.
Alchemy, the medieval predecessor to chemistry was a mystically charged field of research dedicated to the transformation of matter, particularly the conversion of base metals in to gold, or the preparation of a a life prolonging "universal elixir." Seeking the highest form of knowledge through this pursuit, alchemists dedicated their lives to crafting recipes, tinctures, and experiments.
The artists in this exhibition are dedicated to a similar practice, and through their inquisitive and experimental practices convert base materials into higher artistic forms. Working with surprising materials and processes this group show highlights innovation and experimentation as the highest form of artistic wizardry.
