‘Alchemy’ is the magical transformation of a base material into gold.
I felt it was important to create a sculpture to represent the transformation that can happen when Love enters your life and changes it for the better.
Be it a friend, a lover, a baby, a fur baby, or a life partner - This relationship changes you in a fundamental way; Life is suddenly richer, food is even more delicious, you’re kinder, stronger, happier, you have more patience and as a result the world around you subtly shifts in a positive direction.
It’s easy to be cynical and dismiss this idea as naive or perhaps a bit saccharine but I believe this phenomenon should be celebrated unapologetically.
After all, this (and ONLY this) will get us through our darkest days.
