As painters we are alchemists. We concoct, mix, heat and muddle a range of different colours and mediums in search of our very own philosophers stone. Sometimes sparks fly and powers rage as we dabble with the gods in our search for gold. Time and again we muster the courage to go forward only to be met with wrath. Then, often at dawn I have noticed, we see a glimpse and catch it. Alchemy is one attempt at catching the glimpse.
