Reconciliation Sun

Conceptual work with echoes of alchemy, bringing together two traditional opposites in folklore – chalk and cheese – to create a mythical yet symbolic hybrid compound playfully named cheealk.  Yet destroying forever the absolute verity of the familiar saying ” as different as chalk from cheese“, the work points the viewer toward oneness of apparent opposites and reminds of the ever-present potential for resolution of seemingly intractable conflict, indeed the inexorable over-time destiny of everything being a return to unity.


Large block of Red Leicester melted in 12″ enamel pan with added chalk in both solution and powdered forms.
Cooled, dried and sandwiched between two glass panes sealed in an airtight alu’ frame with black card backing.
