Brad Kunkle’s postponed exhibition alkəmē opened at the Arcadia Contemporary. Titled after the pronunciation of the word alchemy, the new body of work is inspired by the the American artist’s fascination with the aforementioned ancient philosophy – most commonly thought of in association with the creation and transformation of other materials into gold. This fits in quite naturally with Kunkle’s signature use of gold leaf and gilding in his work, as well as with his discovery of magical thinking in his ancestral roots.
