ALCHEMY: Three Artists Reassemble the Past
Alchemy was selected by a RNAC jury to receive the support of a grant awarded to the Art Colony by the Bruce J. Anderson Foundation. The three artists, who work in a wide range of mediums, submitted a proposal to present the works—paintings, works-on-paper, assemblage and life-size figurative sculpture—inspired by the past and now being displayed on both levels of the Cultural Center.
Benayun, Cross, and Sullivan all consider themselves storytellers. To construct their stories, they draw from history, memories, experiences—and even their extensive personal collections of “stuff.” “Alchemy” is defined as “the seemingly magical process of transformation, creation, or combination.” Each artist is an alchemist in their own right, borrowing snippets of time, taking bits and pieces to construct a new narrative.
