Description-The transmutation of base metals and ingredients into "noble metals" or the symbolic "gold" aimed to create an elixir of immortality.-
I have felt for some time that Art is in part taking up the role of the alchemist. By assembling a combination of visual symbols and colors we are opening pathways in our consciousness to enter a deeper understanding of ourselves and the world around us. A phrase I have been deeply connected with for some time now is "Awe is the gateway". Beauty creates awe and awe is a transmutation in some sense of the mind. Alchemy #1, like some of my other works e.g. "The Weight of Light" offers an arrangement of symbols to meditate upon to open us to perhaps something more.
