This series of black and white illustrations explore the intriguing symbology of middle ages alchemy through contemporary compositions. Each image depicts one basic element: Air, Fire, Earth, Water: 🜁 🜂 🜃 🜄 in a non-obvious way by using related motifs open to interpretation.
Alchemical language is based on very specific symbology and metaphorical meanings, unknown for many but certainly very effective for those who can understand it. What is the intentionality of nine doors? What if those doors are led by the Mercury symbol ☿, which is usually linked to the mind? My work strives to encourage the audience to draw those subtle connections and come up with narratives for each piece on their own.
