ALCHEMY INITIATIVE

Limited Edition Book: August 30, 2016

The design and production of a limited edition book is part of the ALCHEMY Initiative. The book will be a compendium of original works by ALCHEMY’s artists and writers around the theme, alchemy. The artists and writers who submit work for the this book have been asked to include a ‘statement’ to accompany the work.

I have submitted 2 pieces. The first is entitled ‘Divine Complexity‘. It is 12″ X 12″ and was created using encaustic, oil pastel, tucshe and digital media

The Statement

Before the beginning of time – mixtures of water, hydrogen, methane, ammonia, and carbon dioxide were exposed to various forms of energy.

400 million years ago the first vascular plant appeared – evolving another 40 million years until trees covered areas of planet Earth.

 


My second submission is entitled ‘Conversion‘. It is also 12″ X 12″ and was created using encaustic, oil pastel, tucshe and digital media.

The Statement

Someone posted a photograph of a tree on Facebook – tagging me with a comment expressing their thoughts about how it would inspire me.

The process of seeing a photograph of a tree – the image floating in my mind and mingling with my soul to finally appear as “Conversion” – the moment of ignition that creates transformation in a living thing.
