Inner State Gallery says
Alchemy the medieval forerunner of chemistry is a seemingly magical process of transformation, creation, or combination based on the supposed transformation of matter. It is said that “alchemists relied heavily upon their dreams, inspirations and visions for guidance in perfecting their art. In order to protect their secrets, they recorded diaries filled with mysterious symbols rather than text. These symbols remain exceptionally potent for changing states of consciousness.” Alchemy will be a contemporary reflection of this well worn path through the eyes of the contributing artists.

Show curator and contributor Monica Canilao exists within a community of creators. For The Alchemy Show Canilao has selected artists who wield this magical power to transform their surroundings and materials before them into useful and beautiful objects. These contributing artists practice everyday alchemy within their lives and creative practice. Artwork that flows from one state to another manifesting magical transformation and combining media to create something new. Metal is reshaped and welded into tools, fabric is woven from plant to thread into clothing, tree to wood to shelter. Seed to food for life. Focused Creative energy birthed from dreams of the maker.

Alchemy will involve a combination of flat work and installation. Like historical alchemists who relied heavily upon their dreams, inspirations and visions for guidance in perfecting their art. Invited artists will be showing new work steeped in mysticism and mystery.
