A collaborative exhibition opens at Lacey Contemporary Gallery this September featuring two contemporary artists based in London and working in Photography and Ceramics.

All Artistic creation involves alchemy: alchemy of materials and of imagination. Jenni Hicks uses fire to transform base clay into works of art using processes that have existed for thousands of years. Meirion Harries captures and manipulates light to create printed art forms with processes that are relatively more recent. The ceramic object and the photographic image gain a life that transcends their origins in clay and paper. Contrasting the oldest and newest artistic processes, ALCHEMIES demonstrates that art is not simply rooted in or bound by the process of its creation, but springs to life through the alchemy of imaginative engagement.

Artist ( Description ): 

Jenni Hicks has a studio near Hampstead Heath, and spends a lot of time on the Quantocks in Somerset. She's worked for the BBC and in publishing, and has also run her own cookery school. 'Alchemies' is Jenni's second exhibition in London.

 

Meirion Harries was brought up in Penang, Malaysia and has lived and worked in Hong Kong and Japan. He has co-authored seven books - on twentieth-century British art, on modern music and opera, and two histories of Japan. For the last fifteen years he has been working as a photographer and filmmaker for a social enterprise that supports people with learning disabilities. 'Alchemies' is Meirion's second exhibition in London.
