Griffin Gallery is delighted to present the third part of PERFECTIoNISM: The Alchemy of Making.
“Chemistry is an art, which resolves and reduces all ‘mixed bodies’ into their primary elements, it searches out their nature and separates the pure from the impure and it makes use of the pure to perfect these bodies and even to transform one body into another.”
Antonio Neri (Alchemist, 1576 – 1614), Discorso sopra la chimica
This exhibition does not seek to be perfect. Neither does it claim to showcase perfect artists. Instead, this is an exploration of perfectionism of process and of material transformation that ultimately results in a greater understanding of the world.
