A collaborative exhibition with work in photography and ceramicsA 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.
Having met by purest chance one evening in 2014 at a Notting Hill theatre, Meirion Harries and Jenni Hicks delightedly picked up their friendship after a gap of twenty years – a time in which, as they discovered, they had independently been pursuing very much the same artistic goals in our different mediums. This exhibition is an experiment in synergy: an attempt at artistic alchemy.
