Blurring the Lines: Alchemical Ensemble show focuses on obscure processesreview by Amy Wilder.

" . . . The practice of alchemy was centered on transforming materials. These photographers paint with light and transform the page with chemistry and keep the mystery and awe of photography and the illusory visual world alive in their work.

Photography is a mysterious process, even after centuries of use and practice, even after a transmutation to pixels, ones and zeros. The challenge and mystery of the work draws some artists like moths; the best of these create haunting, seemingly haunted, work."
